Business Plan template

and create strategies to achieve your goals. The business.gov.au Business Plan template
steps you through the process of creating a solid, well-structured plan tailored to your
business.

Using this template
Before you complete this business plan template and start using it, consider the
following:

1. Do your research. You will need to make quite a few decisions about your
business including structure, marketing strategies and finances before you can
complete the template. By having the right information to hand you also can be
more accurate in your forecasts and analysis.

2. Determine who the plan is for. Does it have more than one purpose? Will it be
used internally or will third parties be involved? Deciding the purpose of the plan
can help you target your answers. If third parties are involved, what are they
interested in? Although don’t assume they are just interested in the finance part of
your business. They will be looking for the whole package.

3. Do not attempt to fill in the template from start to finish. First decide which
sections are relevant for your business and set aside the sections that don’t apply.
You can always go back to the other sections later.

4. Use the [italicised text]. The italicised text is there to help guide you by
providing some more detailed questions you may like to answer when preparing
your response. Please note: If a question does not apply to your circumstances it
can be ignored.

5. Download the Business Plan Guide. The business plan guide contains general
advice on business planning, a complete overview of the business plan template
and a glossary explaining the main terms used throughout this template.

6. Get some help. If you aren’t confident in completing the plan yourself, you can
enlist the help of a professional (i.e. Single Business Service, Business Enterprise
Centre, business adviser, or accountant) to look through your plan and provide you
with advice.

7. Actual vs. expected figures. Existing businesses can include actual figures in the
plan, but if your business is just starting out and you are using expected figures for
turnover and finances you will need to clearly show that these are expected figures
or estimates.

8. Write your summary last. Use as few words as possible. You want to get to the
point but not overlook important facts. This is also your opportunity to sell yourself.
But don’t overdo it. You want prospective banks, investors, partners or wholesalers
to be able to quickly read your plan, find it realistic and be motivated by what they
read.

9. Review. Review. Review. Your business plan is there to make a good impression.
Errors will only detract from your professional image. So ask a number of impartial
people to proofread your final plan.
