Download and complete this financial projections template, which acts as the second 'half' of your business plan.
In the narrative part:
- Your projections should include: Annual budgets – income and expenditure itemised, possibly analysed by department; monthly cash flow forecasts; annual profit & loss projections; annual balance sheet forecasts.
- What assumptions these figures are based on: What your start up capital requirements are; where investment is coming from and under what terms; what further investment is required and plans to raise it; when the break-even point will be reached; how much sales income is required to reach break-even; other key financial indicators specific to the enterprise.
- Summarise other scenarios that have been considered in financial terms, such as contingency plans, to demonstrate to investors (and yourselves) that their investments will be safe whatever happens.
