My Business Idea

Extracts from this document...


In my coursework I intend to start my own business. I will devise my own business plan which outlines my business proposal and the key aspects, during this I will need to seek good business advice on the necessary steps I will have to make. As I go through the coursework I will show evidence, examples and explain how businesses are set up, what types of businesses there are and their similarities, the kind of targets businesses set for themselves and also the different objectives of different stakeholders.

The business plan Drawing up a business plan is very important. The business plan sets out how the business is to be set up and run. It contains projections of the future sales, revenues and costs.

This is a legal contract which sets out: * Who are the partners; * How much money or capital each partner has put into the partnership; * How profits should be shared out; * How many votes each partner has in any partnership meeting; * What happens if any of the partners want to withdraw from the business or if new partners are brought in? If there is no deed of partnership, the law states that every partner is equal. Each partner then gets an equal share of the profit and has the same voting power as any other partner. The basic objectives for my business are: * To make the largest possible profit * To grow and expand * To survive (break even) * To provide a service and quality products to ensure the satisfactory of our customers The targets for my business are: * Growth in profits * Growth in sales turnover * Increase in market share * Expansion of the product range * Selling into more areas of the country or the world * To become an even bigger business like a PLC ...read more.
