Business Planning

The Purpose of Planning
A number of surveys have indicated that less than ten per cent of all small businesses have any sort of formal business plan. In fact, most people spend more time planning their annual holidays than they spend planning for their business! That's a bit scary when you consider what is usually at stake.

The formal Business Plan
If your business venture requires finance or additional capital, you will need to prepare a comprehensive business plan before approaching a bank or financial investors. Most will not even consider advancing money without one. The more detail and accuracy you can project in your plan, the more chance you will have of securing your loan.

Planning for the future
While the main reason most people prepare a business plan is to raise finance, your business plan should not just be a tool for raising capital. It should also be a blueprint for the future of your business.

It's also a great way of checking the overall viability of a new business venture or planning for long term growth and even your ultimate exit or succession. A well prepared business plan will also add value to your business and help you stay on track.
