Bill 50 Brings Lower Tax Rates and Creates Demand for Commercial Properties

The introduction of Bill 50 will see commercial property rental tax rates reduce from 5.5% to 2%. This is a very welcomed move, especially with the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on businesses. The loss in earnings, the having to close or adapt to a new way of working, and the loss of employees have all had a major impact on small, medium, and large businesses. Introducing a lower rate of tax will give businesses the relief they need to get back on their feet and ensure Florida doesn't miss out on the much-needed economic injection of healthy, thriving businesses.

Whilst it is positive that businesses will benefit from the lower tax rate, this is also likely to increase demand for commercial properties. With an increase in demand inevitably comes an increase in cost. And so, whilst businesses would save money on tax, they might end up paying more because the demand will drive up the price can be asked.

For this and many other reasons, metal buildings are a perfect investment. Having a cost-effective, sustainable solution is vital if businesses are to fully recover and the economy is to bounce back in Florida. Commercial steel buildings offer that and much more!

Why Metal Buildings are the Cost-Effective and Sustainable Solution, You Need

Here’s why metal buildings should never be overlooked as a solution for any type of commercial premises.

• How are Metal Buildings Sustainable?

Steel building structures are sustainable due to the incredibly durable material. These long-lasting structures are not susceptible to pests or rot and use fewer resources in the building of them. Metal is also recyclable, so when the building does eventually reach the end of its days, it still won't produce waste.

• Are Metal Buildings Cost-Effective and Energy-Efficient?

Yes, metal building prices are lower than having a conventional building built, and they also have lower running costs. This is because they are energy efficient. Insulating a metal building is simple and will save money on heating and/or air conditioning.

• How Durable, Versatile, and Flexible are Metal Buildings?

The materials used for steel building structures are some of the most durable you can find. These buildings will require far less maintenance and repairs than other types of structures. The versatility of the metal also means that there is a massive amount of flexibility when it comes to what you want from your metal building.

• Can You Change the Design of Your Metal Building?

Absolutely! One of the perks about metal building kits is that you can play around with the design until you get it just the way you need it. The flexibility of metal buildings means the options are so varied, if you can think of what you need, then a metal building will probably be able to deliver.

• Is it Possible to Save Money with a Metal Building?

You will save money simply by choosing to opt for a metal building as the installation of a metal building is considerably less than a building made from other raw materials. You can also save money by speeding up the construction time. The sooner your building is ready, the sooner you can stop paying contractors and start using it. Lower running costs, less maintenance, and fewer repairs also all add to the money you can save.

• Do all Metal Buildings Look the Same?

This is a common myth that all steel building structures look like metal sheds or warehouses. The market for metal buildings is huge and keeping the aesthetic look of your commercial company is something that can be achieved. Regardless of what you want a metal building for, the design will be created to suit your individual needs.

Metal Building Kits Will Save You Money on Insurance

Florida is known for its natural disasters and is even referred to as 'the lightning state'. For this reason, you would think that insuring a building would cost quite a sum of money. For regular buildings, you would be correct, and prices are continuing to rise. However, you can save money by having a metal building.

The fact that metal buildings are not combustible means that you can enjoy up to a 30% reduction in insurance. The material is also better equipped to deal with earthquakes and can withstand other elements such as heat, wind, and snow.

Whatever You Need a Building For, There is a Metal Building For You

Metal buildings offer a perfect solution for commercial storage. If you have a large amount of stock that you need to be stored in a secure location, then there will be various metal building kits to choose from.

This is the only use for metal building kits, though. Metal is often overlooked as a material for other types of buildings. However, steel building structures can provide the perfect venue for retail or office space as well as buildings within the service industry or for recreational activities. The possibilities are endless, as the versatility and flexibility of metal structures mean you can create any type of building you need.

What to Consider Before Deciding on a Commercial Metal Building in Florida

There are huge advantages to using metal buildings for your commercial properties. However, there are also a number of things to consider before you part with any money.

Firstly, what do you intend to use the building for? You don't need to have all the details, but you do need to know if you need a clear span design or if your structure will be alright with pillars.

Secondly, you need to find out whether your design will need to have a proper building permit. You don’t want to put up a structure that you are forced to remove.

Thirdly, consider the location and size. These will be dependent upon what you want the building to be used for and whether you need a building permit.

Ensuring you are clear about what your building will be used for before you buy and construct in should mean that you don’t have any issues later.
