Reviewing Your Business Plan

Is often essential for securing external finance for your business (and is required if you’re applying for a Start Up Loan). A is like a blue print for your business – it details all your goals and how you plan to achieve them. You will be required to submit a Business Plan with your final Start Up Loan application. We collaborate and consult with industry and Nation Councils to ensure our work is suitable for England, Scotland and Wales.

When the cash you have coming in is greater than the cash you have going out, your cash flow is positive. Ideally, your cash flow statement will help you see when cash is low, when you might have a surplus, and where you might need to have a contingency plan to access funding to keep your business solvent. Here’s a spreadsheet template that includes everything you’ll need to create an income statement, balance sheet, and cash-flow statement, including some sample numbers. How much detail you present on each will depend on both your business and your plan’s audience.

This year’s business plan is structured around the new strategic priorities. To keep the prudential framework fit for purpose, the PRA also seeks to be at the forefront of identifying and dealing with new and emerging risks. In pursuing these first two priorities, the PRA must balance its primary and secondary objectives by ensuring the safety and soundness of firms while fostering competition and innovation in the markets it regulates. Finally, to deliver these ambitious priorities, the PRA must have staff with the right skills and experience, working in an inclusive environment, and who are complemented by efficient technology and processes. Second, we are already developing a simpler regime for smaller banks, which will be good both for safety and soundness and for competition – we call this ‘Strong and Simple’ because we have no interest in a weak regime. Taken together and appropriately calibrated, this package will make an important contribution to investment and competitiveness in a way that is consistent with the PRA’s objectives.
