Signing an office lease, personal or registered company?

My boss is looking to set up an office in Taipei as soon as possible, and would prefer to start the lease under his personal name.  Is this possible?

I understand that it's possible to do this with serviced offices like Regus and The Executive Center, but they're many multiples the price of conventional offices, which is their preference.

Does anyone know if this is possible, or if it's required to go through the lengthy process of registered the company/branch office in Taiwan first?  If you could point me in the direction of any resources on this topic, it's much appreciated!

Thank you!
