A Flexi-desk (or smart desk) is a single workstation that can be leased for your business and serve as the physical location and address listed on your company’s registration. These workstations typically come with a simple desk and chair within a shared office space. The facility typically also provides amenities such as high-speed internet, free tea and coffee, lockers to secure personal items and parking.
The primary benefit to Flexi-desks is their affordability. These workstations can cost as little as 50 AED per day (about $14 USD). In some cases, these are included as part of your business registration package.
The downside is that Flexi-desks are not private. This can be difficult if you need quiet space to work or need to discuss private or sensitive information. For this reason, some businesses chose to keep the workstation for the formality of a physical office while working elsewhere such as a home office.
