Business planning is a key tool which is often overlooked by new and existing businesses alike. Being able to plan your growth over the short to medium term and reviewing the resulting cash-flow and asset requirements will help you to be successful. Even if you are already a successful business, taking the time to set goals and targets will focus the managers and owners on what needs to be achieved.
Whatever stage your business is at, our business planning department write business plans for those seeking:
- External Investment
- Bank funding
- A plan for internal purposes
Our qualified team of business analysts and accountants have been involved in the production of over 500 business plans from a huge array of sectors and business sizes from a national airline to a pizza franchise; and from a concrete manufacturer to a local beautician.
The focus is on producing a business plan that will capture the attention of the reader quickly. It will highlight the important aspects of the business and will guide the reader through the key attributes and risks.
We do not use templates and we do not use business plan software to create our business plans. Instead we spend time with you to understand your business and what key nuances exist that drive revenue and profit.
We get asked typically to focus on three areas within business planning, however we can focus our attention to other areas if required:
- Financial plan – producing a forecasted profit and loss account, balance sheet and cash flow.
- Written plan – producing a document that describes what the business has achieved so far and what it is looking to do in the future.
- Business viability plan – provide some analytical and constructive advice around areas of the business that potentially need improvement or that are failing.
