It would be great for a small office. Just be careful not to put thicker sheets or folded sheets in too often or it will overheat the system and you have to wait 15 - 20 minutes for it to cool down. Stick to one or 2 sheets at a time. If you have a lot of paperwork, you may want to go up a size because the basket fills up pretty quickly. Overall, it is a good little machine.
I think it would work fine for that purpose. I use mine at home, but recently it has gotten a lot of use -- as in hundreds of pages at a time (getting rid of old documents that have piled up over the years). It worked like a champ.
