Business plans & forecasts

A business plan may be prepared to give focus and to help you run and grow your business or as a financial projection to support a funding application. The plan should give an overview of the business, details of the key staff, products or services, the marketing plan and identify the business opportunities and risks. We can assist in the preparation and in its presentation to potential lenders.

Cash flow forecasting

Cash is the life blood of your business. It is therefore essential that you identify the working capital requirements of the business and any likely cash-flow problems.

A detailed cash-flow forecast will also form a major part of a business plan to support a fiannce application. We can help you prepare the forecast, improve your credit control procedures, and review supplier terms.
