Part of Financial Planning for a business involves having a business plan in place. Our Financial Advisers can then work with you to help your business reach its financial goals.

What is a business plan?

A business plan is a document that outlines your business model, goals, target market, future plans and business financing. It can be a good way to set specific objectives for your business over a variety of timeframes, for example monthly and annual. Having a business plan is a good way to easily share your strategy with others and determine future business needs such as additional staff or resources.

What are the benefits of having a business plan?

If you require a loan or additional funding to expand your business, having a business plan in place is essential to pitch your business to potential investors or supporters. This will enable to them to see potential growth of the company and future plans that their money will be used to contribute to. It will also make it clear what potential returns they could expect and how much risk they could be taking.

Business plans can also be essential for decision making, for example to determine what products or services to sell and price points. The plan can determine what pricing structures need to be established to make sure the business is making good returns.

Business plans can also be a way to generate ideas to create new business and establish possible solutions to challenges.
