Balance‌ ‌Sheet‌ ‌

A sheet that gives a peek into the assets, liabilities, and the equity of the company, the three utmost financial factors of any corporate real estate business.

Capital Lease

Cash Flow Statement

A primary element for the financials of a company, this statement records the cash generated or lost during a said period of time. Cash from operations, investments, and finances are the key factors calculated here.

Depreciation Expense

Facility Management

Focus Spaces

Private spaces for small meetings, one-on-one conversations, or phone calls. Such spaces are common in a co-working space environment and usually compensate for the lack of an entirely private space.

Government Incentives

Incentives such as free lands, tax rebated spaces, or special assistance provided by the city, state, or national government. These incentives can play a decisive role in where corporate real estate is set up.
