How to Write a Business Plan

A business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals and serves as your firm's resume. Its basic components include a current and pro forma balance sheet, an income statement and a cash flow analysis.

About this Guide

This guide will help you to write a business plan.

A business plan is a picture of your business - and it should reflect the best of your company.

If you have a business idea, you must research your field of business and set your goals.

You must write down all your goals and consider your available resources. 

For a new business, you should use future projections on the basis of real facts, and if you are already running a business, past reports would be included.
