Business Planning

When a business idea has been developed and markets researched, it is time to pull the proposal together and draw up a business plan. The plan brings together the different elements involved in starting a new business, and defines your medium and long term objectives.

It will be crucial in determining the amount of capital required to start and operate the business and convincing the bank, or other source of funds, to support you.

A business plan could be said to have three main purposes:

  • For You
  • Raising Finance
  • A Benchmark
