Business Plan Services

All businesses require planning, but many only think about planning when pushed to do so. They may plan in order to seek investment, or to acquire a bank loan to obtain a Visa for the owners.

But it's more than that

All businesses require planning, but many only think about planning when pushed to do so. They may plan in order to seek investment, or to acquire a bank loan to obtain a Visa for the owners.

But there’s far more to Wisteria’s business plan services than that!

All businesses, both small and mature, require business planning. A plan can act as a way to guide the business, to track whether cashflow might be difficult in the future, to benchmark performance of certain parts or services within the business, or simply to anticipate resource requirements.

It is therefore crucial to have a business plan which is bespoke to your company.  At Wisteria, we provide a business plan service which is useful, measurable, and adaptable — it will help your business change and grow.

Wisteria can offer expert advice, whatever stage your business is at. We have years of experience in business planning for those seeking:

  • External Investment, such as through crowd funding or private equity
  • Bank funding
  • Grants
  • A Visa (Entrepreneur Visa)

Andrew Millet and his team have been responsible for providing business plan services for over 500 companies from a huge array of sectors and business sizes — From a start-up Ivorian chicken farm, to an international airline! Whilst our experience and knowledge are wide ranging, the firm has particular expertise in the following sectors: Financial services, Telecoms, Biotech, Digital Media & Software, Retail and Leisure.

We do not use templates and we do not use business planning software to create our business plans. Instead, we spend time with you to understand your business and what key variables exist that drive revenue and profit. The plan is then written specifically for you.

Our business plan service consists of two parts. The financial plan is nearly always required, whilst the written plan will depend on the exact purpose of the business strategy. The elements involve:

  • Financial plan — producing a forecasted profit and loss account, balance sheet, and cash flow. This is usually over a three to five year period.
  • Written plan — producing a document that describes what the business has achieved so far and what it is looking to do in the future. This takes in issues such as the available market, competition, and details of the business’s key team members and their experiences.
