Posted by Don Catalano on Apr 10, 2015 8:51:00 AM

Your monthly payments to your company's landlords aren't as simple as they may seem. Typically, commercial leases require you to pay a mixture of rent and expenses.

Here are some factors to look for as you review your company's portfolio for consolidation.
