How to use the business plan

Create your own business plan with the help of our business plan template

Using your business plan template

Start off by downloading the template and saving it locally so you can return to it later.

Consider it a guide

This template's a guide – some of the sections may not apply to your type of business. Work your way through the plan by filling in the empty boxes section by section, and feel free to add or remove sections if you need to. This is your plan so go ahead and tweak it until it fits you and your business perfectly.

Your business plan template will work with you to make the experience a stress-free one

Adding a section

It’s easy to add a section and make it look the same as the rest of your business plan. Just highlight a line that has the formatting you’d like to copy, click on the paintbrush on the top left of the home page, then click on your new text.

Hey presto – it’ll look just like the section you’ve copied.

 

Keep or delete the guidance notes

Once you’re done with this introductory page, feel free to delete it. The same goes for the guidance notes and prompts we’ve included in italics throughout the template.

 

Share your business plan with your advisors

We recommend you share your business plan with your business advisors or accountant, especially if you’re planning to use it to apply for business lending.

You can keep them, delete them or save them in another document to refer to another time – it’s entirely up to you. Happy planning and good luck with your business!
