Developing a clear and strategic business plan

The first, and often the toughest part of starting a new business venture, is having a clear, concise strategic and operational business plan. This forms the road map for your business.Your business plan should answer the following questions:

  • Is your business idea is commercially viable?
  • What sort of market exists for your product or service?
  • Have you defined your business objectives and goals in the short, medium, and long term?
  • Have you defined your target market and potential customer base?
  • Who are your competitors?
  • How much start up capital do you need?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Starting/Buying a Business

We’ve put together some commonly asked questions to give you more information about our services.
How should I structure my business?

There are a number of structures open to you when you are starting a business. For instance, you might decide to operate as a sole trader, or it might be more effective and tax efficient for you to form a company or set up as a trust. Our team of business accountants can advise you as to what sort of structure will work best for you.

How do I get business funding?

Ashmans can help you prepare a budget, cash flow analysis and forecast, and a profit and loss projection for your new business. Having this information can be vital in obtaining funding for your new enterprise and getting your business off the ground.
