Covering over 200 different types of business sectors, Santander Business Guides, provided by Parkes, are designed to help you start up and grow your business
Careful planning is crucial to the success of any business. You should aim to define your objectives for each year and decide how you will achieve them. One of the best ways to make sure nothing is overlooked is to prepare a detailed Business Plan. To produce your business plan you will need to:
Cost any capital items you will need. One of the first things to consider is whether you can meet the cost yourself or whether you will have to borrow money. Use the Cost Calculator to help you estimate your capital costs.
Research your market. To complete your cash flow projections and write your Business Plan you need to research your market carefully and show that your estimates for income and expenditure make sense when set in that background. See Industry Sectors for step-by-step guidance covering over 200 types of business.
