    Business planning

    If you need a business plan to raise finance, BKPS can help you. Please contact us for a quote. However, every business coach will tell you it’s a good idea to have a business plan regardless of whether you need finance or not. Let’s call this an “internal” business plan. Internal business plans have two elements – one long term, the other short term:

    Whole business life

    1. Owners’ personal goals and ambitions
    2. What do I want for me and my family/lifestyle?
    3. What does my business need to be to achieve my personal ambitions?
    4. How do I drive my business to where it needs to be?
    5. What is my exit strategy and when do I need to start working towards it?

    Annual business plans

    Bite-sized chunks that are achievable:

    1. What do I want from my business this year and where do I want my business to be this time next year?
    2. How do I achieve this?

    Fee protection

    With HMRC enquiries becoming increasingly common, BKPS offers its clients fee protection (through Croner Taxwise Ltd) against additional accounting and legal costs. Fee protection cover costs £10 + VAT per month.
