What does it take to set up your own Makati office? If you're a budding businessman looking to open your office in this city, you would definitely want to look at this week's infographic. KMC MAG Group will help you crunch the numbers; we're giving you all the details you need, from the typical space rental rate down to the retail price of a computer and every office furniture.

Key takeaways:

  • Monthly office space rental rates in a Makati are a lot cheaper compared to rates in other Asian countries such as Singapore and Hong Kong. Class A: $18/sqm a month, Premium: $27/sqm a month
  • Fit-out and design of the office, however, might not be as cheap. Cabinets, glass boards, and office chairs and tables alone may cost more than $5,000. Not to mention couches and other furniture for the lounge area, which would also cost more.
  • Equipment would still take a hefty part of the budget, with computers priced at $700 per unit, IP phones at $225, and headsets at $58.
  • You might need to have at least $60000 just to equip your office space and prepare for advance rental dues.
