Business Plan Templates

Part of your pre-start may be a business plan, we have our own template for this and offer guidance on how to complete this in the form of workshops. Alongside your business plan is a cash flow forecast that covers all the costs for starting and running your business, this is where we can see the viability of your idea and if you have the correct pricing structure.

Many people find the tax and record keeping aspects of being self-employed are intimidating and are frightened of getting it wrong. We can guide you through your initial registration as a sole trader and help you set up a simple system to keep your finances in order.
