Defining your business sense of purpose through business planning will keep you and your employees focused and will equip you with a valuable tool that will keep you up-to-date, enabling you to stay in control of your financial position and assist with the raising of finance.
A good business plan should typically include sections on:

• The structure and legal status of the business.

• A resume of the business and its aims.

• Marketing plans to support business growth.

• Financial projections and requirements.


How can Marshall Smalley Accountants help you?


By working closely together with you, we can find out how your business works and incorporate this into a cash flow forecast and business plan.

Business planning and forecasting is also used to demonstrate the potential effect on a business if circumstances change, for example a large order may be excellent for the profitability of the business but the cash reserves of the business may not be sufficient.

We can help illustrate any potential problems and help you to look for solutions before issues arise and using a business plan to assess your current and ongoing position will highlight any strengths or weaknesses. We’ll also show you how to put measures in place to continuously improve and review your business performance.
