Business plan preparation

A good business idea needs a great business plan with useful financial information, business goals and a strategy to make the idea a reality.

At some point, all businesses, new or old, will need funding, angel investors, or new stakeholders. An expert business plan can help you determine the viability of your idea and help a bank or other lending institution understand your vision for the company's future.

We have a team of highly qualified business plan writers who have years of experience assisting small business owners in developing a professional and tailored business plan and financial forecasts to help them achieve their objectives.

Having close ties with financial institutions, we instinctively know what information is required and how it should be presented to give you the best chance of getting the loan that best suits your needs.

Why do I need a business plan?

Those looking to invest or lend money want assurances that they will get a return on their money or earn a higher return. So all investors or lenders will demand a solid business plan. Writing a business plan ensures you focus on your company's overall operational and financial goals, as well as the finer details like budgeting, marketing, and planning.

Think of it as the road map to your business's future! Think of it as the road map to your business's future! Reviewing the business plan can help you see what goals have been accomplished, what changes need to be made and insights to drive growth. Of course, you can always go back to the plan to review, monitor its progress, and change direction if need be. It can also be used as a tool for any financial, management, or technology-related matters.

Use a business plan to evaluate your business and its progress. Schedule annual business reviews to assess overall business operations, financial health, and goals. It will also help you identify any weaknesses and guide any changes.Keep in mind that business plans can change and evolve according to your company's needs and that you can seek the help of professional experts at the right time in case you find any weaknesses in your plan.

Naturally, any stakeholder who has invested in your business will expect to be kept up to date on how it is progressing. Budgeting and having a marketing plan will help you win the confidence of your stakeholder(s) by communicating your future strategy sales projections to outline how you intend to sell and deliver your products to customers as an attractive proposition for the future.

Creating a business plan has several advantages. While a business plan is necessary for a start-up loan application, you can still significantly benefit from having one. Here are six important things a business plan does for you:
  • Share your thoughts and ideas about running the business giving anyone who reads it a clear vision of the future.
  • Having a structured business plan helps you identify, and solve, any potential problems or issues in achieving your goals.
  • Pay attention to the broad operational and financial objectives so you are more aware of any unforeseen problems as your business gets up and running.
  • Achieve key business milestones. Think about the key elements of your business to inform decision making as you move forward.
  • Circulate it to your wider team. Once everyone is familiar with the business plan, everyone can work together to achieve your vision.
  • Use your business plan to run the business and map out your business's future.

FAQ 's

A business plan is a written document that describes in detail how a business (usually a start-up) defines its objectives and how it will go about achieving its goals. A business plan lays out a written plan, strategy and targets covering operational, financial, and marketing to attract investment.

It should include an overview of your products/services, customers, and suppliers. A summary of company projected growth, including financial or market research and insights and a summary of your short and long-term business goals, and how you plan to make a profit.
