Business Plans

There is an old Chinese saying 'If you don't know where you are going any road will do'. If you were planning a long journey to an unfamiliar destination you would probably look at a map or train timetables. You may need to consider an overnight stop or perhaps a flight with a low cost airline is the best alternative. It is highly unlikely that you would just set out without a planned route.

Running a business is no different to planning a journey. You know where you are now, you know where you want to be, and so what is the best way of getting to your destination? All successful businesses know where they are, where they want to be and how they propose to get there and plan accordingly.

A business plan is a valuable tool to help any business to achieve its goals. It can help the business owners keep on track with their ambitions and be a good aid to motivating the workforce by showing that the business is in safe hands and has clear objectives.

A clear and concise business plan can be invaluable in securing funds from potential investors or if the owners are looking to retire and sell the business.

If you need to borrow substantial funds from your bank, the manager will need to see a current business plan to be convinced that the lending is safe and that the business owners have the necessary business acumen to run the business effectively and efficiently.

We will show you how to put your ideas into a logical sequence to impress your fellow directors and workforce, potential investors or your bank manager. You will receive a comprehensive written business plan showing your ideas and aspirations at their best, and in a format that can easily be updated.

A business plan is a working document. It is not caste in stone and should be updated regularly to ensure that it stays fresh and relevant. So whether you need a business plan written from scratch or some fine tuning to an existing plan we can provide:
