Why you need a business plan

If you don’t know where you are going, it is likely you will never get there. That’s why you need a business plan. It covers your objectives, strategies, sales, marketing and financial forecasts. You can use it to:

  • clarify your business idea
  • spot potential problems
  • set out your goals
  • measure your progress

The UK Government have lots of free advice and templates available at https://www.gov.uk/write-business-plan.

If you have an accountant, they should be your first stop for business advice. If you don’t have an accountant or they can’t help, BuBul has a wide range of experts available. If you need any help, feel free to get in touch with our expert* Rob on LinkedIn.

*We’ve picked experts we know and trust who are good at what they do. All of them will give you at least an extra 30 minutes free advice if you contact them and would then charge their normal prices. They don’t pay to be on BuBul and don’t give us any money from anything they earn as an expert.
