Writing a business plan is one of the most important tasks when starting up a new business. It is a way of collating ideas, setting targets, planning for the future of the enterprise and confirming that the business idea is realistic and workable. The business plan is also an essential tool for attracting funding to get started. It is a dynamic document that should be reviewed regularly to help with monitoring and measuring the performance of a business.
This factsheet describes what a business plan should include, how to go about writing one and what will be achieved by doing so. It is aimed particularly at business start-ups that need to raise funding, but the principles are equally valid for established firms looking to grow.
