Isle of Man Business Centre

The Dixcart Business Centre in the Isle of Man is situated in a prime location and is the ideal way for a new business to establish itself on the island. The Isle of Man is an attractive jurisdiction for international companies and individuals due to many advantages.

The island is English speaking and shares the same currency, common law and time zone as the UK. A dependency of the British Crown, the Isle of Man has domestic, political and legislative independence through the Manx Parliament.

The Isle of Man and Emerging Industries

The Isle of Man has invested heavily in its IT and utility infrastructure. This has helped to establish the island as a leading jurisdiction for emerging industries. The island's private sector has established an "incubator programme" to assist organisations in this growing sector (which includes e-gaming companies and FinTech) to set up in the Isle of Man.

The Dixcart Serviced Offices offer high-quality furnished office accommodation with sophisticated IT and communications systems. The 1 Gbps of network connectivity into the Isle of Man Business Centre guarantees high-speed internet access.

The Isle of Man is a desirable international centre that benefits from a 22 acre "freeport" and a special relationship with the EU. The island also has an enviable education record and is home to the annual TT sporting event, attracting people and bikers from all over the world.

Why the Isle of Man?

Testimonials

Some of our satisfied customers

Dixcart Business Centre proved an ideal first home for our company as we relocated to the Isle of Man. The offices are all that a business needs to get a great start on the island. The management of the building is excellent and the staff can’t do enough to help. They have all the local knowledge that you need recommending suppliers and advisors and being situated at the end of Athol St is ideal because the majority of the lawyers, accountants, Corporate Service Providers and advisors are within 5 minutes’ walk.

The business centre has been a great choice for our first office in the Isle of Man.

From the initial on-site meeting with the Senior management team of Dixcart (IOM) all aspects of our move and business integration have ran smoothly and extremely efficiently.  The IT support and internet connectivity which we rely on heavily for our cloud-based systems has been extremely good.  The full reception team are very friendly, helpful and efficient and the office accommodation is maintained to a high standard of cleanliness.  Nothing is too much trouble for any of the team at Dixcart (IOM).

The serviced office is ideally located in the centre of Douglas and in walking distance from the Bank’s and the rest of the business community.

This truly is a fine example of a professional, high-end serviced office facility in the centre of the Town offering pleasant working surroundings and a friendly and professional support team from Dixcart (IOM).

AW Crewing Services has recently leased a fully serviced office suite from DBC Limited in their Britannia House, Business Centre and we have found the solution fully meets our needs and current business requirements.

We have occupied office space with Dixcart since April 2015. From the very first meetings we had with Steve Corlett and the Dixcart team, all our needs have been met to the highest standards. The I.T. and communications support has in particular been exemplary. The reception staff are friendly and professional, and the offices are always kept clean and tidy. Britannia House is in a prime location in Douglas, and is an excellent example of a managed office facility.  

Kate Leece 
Platinum Trading Management Limited

Newfield’s first office was leased office space in Britannia House provided by Dixcart. Steve Corlett and Simon Kelly from Dixcart were so accommodating of our business needs it made starting operations straightforward and painless. They also offered plenty of advice to the Newfield staff from Australia about how to navigate business life on the island and it has been much appreciated. They were a wealth of knowledge and contacts. In addition Steve has always made every effort to facilitate any change to the IT environment in a prompt manner to suit the tenants. Whether its installing a new swipe system, rustling up extra cables or coming in to give us emergency access to the server room nothing is a problem its just done. While we were happy to find our final home we were sorry to say goodbye to Britannia House.

The Dixcart Business Centre has provided us with a “turn-key” office solution. We have been delighted at having a working environment that is professional, comfortable and hassle free. We literally sat down, unpacked our desk boxes, acquainted ourselves with the phone system and we were up and running. At every stage we have been very impressed with the response we’ve received to requests. All of Dixcart’s personnel have been courteous and efficient.  Anyone looking for a managed office solution should look no further.

The serviced office accommodation we occupy in Dixcart’s premises meets our every need. Nothing has been too much trouble; from the time contracts were first discussed, through our first day moving into the new office, and operationally ever since. Professional support services are readily available, covering everything from reception, post and courier sending and receipt, IT and communications. We enjoy our own privacy yet can still feel part of a bigger office when supported by the Dixcart team.

Mike Kelly
Managing Director
Credit Suisse Administration Services (Isle of Man) Limited

We moved in to our serviced office accommodation in Dixcart’s premises during March 2013. This followed viewing several office facilities in Douglas after which we decided this was our best option to suit our needs. The set up process was simple and our contact Steve Corlett is readily available should the need arise. The location is perfect as our bank, auditors, and the revenue office are all within a short walking distance. The offices always look clean and tidy and the reception staff are always helpful. I would not hesitate in recommending these serviced offices to anyone.

Since moving into the office in May 2013 I've found the building and office space to be ideal for my needs. The building is centrally located in the heart of Douglas and the offices are of a very high standard. Furthermore, Steve Corlett and the Dixcart staff have been extremely professional and are always on hand to provide any assistance or support that may be required from time to time. I would highly recommend the serviced offices to anyone looking for either a short term or longer term office solution.

Vic Ferns

We moved into the Dixcart office two years ago and were always made to feel very welcome. The standard of accommodation and support was first class and whenever we wanted something not provided as part of the standard service it was given without question and promptly. The location was superb and everything, particularly IT and communications, just worked as it should. The Dixcart team were friendly and helpful at all times so we definitely enjoyed our time there and have no hesitation in recommending the serviced office to anyone looking for such accommodation in Douglas. 

Larry Sargent
Finance Director

The premises and services that Dixcart has provided to us have been excellent. As a start-up business we have enjoyed the freedom of having no premises-related headaches, and a reduction in the key unpredictable variable costs. From the moment we began discussions the entire process has been exceptionally smooth starting pre-contract, through moving in, and in day to day operation. It could not have been any easier for us. The facilities are exactly what we need and the availability of added office services is a real bonus. All of Dixcart’s staff have been extremely helpful. Even the slightest issues are dealt with quickly, courteously and effectively. I strongly recommend any start-up business to seriously consider using Dixcart’s serviced offices.

Stuart Colligon
Managing Director
Auxesia Limited

We have spent the last two and a half years occupying space in this serviced office facility and have found the office space to be of good quality, highly suitable for our requirements and conveniently located. The Dixcart team operating the facility have been extremely helpful and, where changes have been required to layout or to facilities, they have accommodated these with the minimum of fuss. We have most definitely enjoyed our time here and would recommend the facility to others looking for similar office space, be it in the short term or for a longer period.

Best thing about this office: Operated by a friendly, flexible and accommodating team

Worst thing about this office: No real downside

Richard Bolton
Managing Director
Galileo Fund Services Limited

We have found the offices to be good value and have never had a problem with the infrastructure, IT or other tenants. The main reception is well manned and we have always been able to gain access to a meeting room when required. We would recommend the space to any company initially relocating to the IOM.

Best thing about this office: Friendly and Accommodating Nature

Worst thing about this office: Limited Space to Expand

Dan Craddock
Managing Director
Bramden Investments

My company opened for business at the beginning of November 2011 and the immediate support of Dixcart, and their provision of a “walk in” office, was very welcome.  They made the establishment of my business a breeze.  I was providing services to clients literally the day after we incorporated.   The range of services provided by Dixcart is fantastic and the flexibility of their offering meets every need.

Best thing about this office: Flexible, cost effective and accommodating services in a perfect location. Professional and effective staff catering, with a smile, for every need. Worst thing about this office: I fail to see any downside.

Bryan Darroch
