The Business Plan- Your Road Map for Success
The Business plan is a planning and managing tool; enables business owners and entrepreneur to understand their future business and smartly operate it. I have been asked by one of my potential clients; do I need a business plan even if I want to use my own savings for funding my future business?
The Business plan is not a financial support technique. In reality, a business plan is much more than that: It’s a tool to manage, control and understand how your future business will work. You can use it to check the progress of your business at each stage by comparing your business plan figures to actual results on a timely basis, and analyze your results.
Also business plan can be used as a sales and engagement tool for attracting future stakeholders and even investors. A well written and accurate business plan prepared by a professional accountant is what each new business must have before the actual implementation.
It is a financial and tax planning tool, marketing idea, implementation strategy. It highlights your ideas and vision in a talented way through the help and the advice of your accountant and tax planner. As part of your strategic techniques, you will find yourself efficient and precise in reaching your proposed goals during the years of the operations especially in the first year.
It is a useful tool to avoid any disagreements or big mistakes between business partners, so everyone is clear on his or her role in the business.

Did you face a high competition? Or did you just overestimate your sales? What you learn will help you do an even better job next time. So do you consider now starting your business plan?
