Business planning
Many business plans are written solely to secure external funding (without a comprehensive business plan, your application for working capital/ loan finance is likely to be declined by the lender). A good business plan will, however, do much more and should provide a strong platform for successful development of your business – often (and we recommend) without being a massively detailed document.

A good business plan will:
• Provide a clear view of your business purpose and enable this to be communicated to partners and staff
• Predict future impacts and contain actions to ensure they do not threaten your business
• Set clear targets and objectives so that business performance can be monitored
• Set out where you want to be in the future and how you will get there.
