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.

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.
