Business Plan Review (£100+vat)

It is more and more important in the current business world to ensure that a Company, whether new or existing has a well thought out and sensible business plan to provide a measure of how well (or not) it is doing at various times. A well thought out and sensible business plan will also go a long way to gaining the confidence and a positive attitude from your Bank Manager should the need arise for you to speak with him or her.

BSS offers the opportunity for you to have your Business Plan reviewed by Industry individuals who have an enormous amount of experience in this particular field and who have up to date knowledge and experience. This knowledge and experience could be the difference between your Business Plan being accepted or rejected by banks etc and so this service may, for a very reasonable fee, just be the difference for you and your Company.
