Business Plan Writing

A business plan is a formal statement of a set of business goals, the reasons these goals are believed attainable and the plan to reach these goals.

Professional Business Plan Writing 

A business plan can be used for a variety of purposes whether you’re a new start-up looking to secure finance or an established company looking to review your strategy.

A professional business plan will allow you to:

  • Secure funding from banks and other investors. Read our business funding blogs for more information on this.
  • Maximise the chances of your company surviving (UK businesses without plans are statistically much more likely to fail than those that maintain a plan).
  • Set targets and benchmarks for the business and help you to drive towards achieving these goals effectively, with regular progress reviews.
  • Make progress reporting manageable and effective
  • Test the feasibility of your business proposa

UK Wide Service

We have consultants covering the whole of the UK, and are able to produce tailored, bespoke business plans, often for less than an “off the shelf” version.

Some potential funders offer business planning as an additional service, but it’s not their core activity, they’re not specialists and it’s unlikely they’ll be able to provide MBA qualified consultants with personal experience of gaining investment.

We understand the need to control costs so we work on a fixed price basis and will agree this price with you up front, so you’ll have a clear understanding of what will be included in your plan and how much it will cost.

We’re happy to discuss your proposition with you, and can arrange a conversation with the consultant covering your area before you commit to using our business planning service.

Use Your Business Plan To Achieve A Good Work-Life Balance

A recent report by YouGov found that one in seven people are unhappy with their work-life balance, and 43% of people regularly send emails out of work because they are too busy to get everything done during their working day. In fact, according to CV-Library, 37% of people are putting in 13 days extra work per year. This data refers to the average UK employee, but those who are working for themselves are also at risk of having a poor work-life balance. Start-ups take a lot of work and long hours to get off the ground, so it’s understandable that entrepreneurs may be spending much more time working than relaxing or tending to their home life.
