“Working with J K Business Services will ease the stress and pressures of financial control of your business and leave you secure in the knowledge that your business finances are in safe hands.”

Business Planning and Consultancy

All businesses need a plan. It can be a simple one page document highlighting your business targets for a period of time. Or you may need a comprehensive strategic document that reviews your business as a whole and sets key performance indicators to monitor your success. Or maybe somewhere in between. But whatever the size of your enterprise, its success depends on having, and implementing, a solid business plan.

When working in your business it can be difficult to see the wood for the trees when it comes to producing a business plan! You’re so close to the day-to-day action that getting an overview and setting direction, is almost impossible.

This is where J K Business Services can help. Our experienced consultants can guide you through the process. We have a database of more than 500 business plan templates, and access to online software that you can use to develop your plan. We can be as hands on or off as you need, providing everything from general direction setting and guidance, to completing a full business plan for you.

We have a proven track record in developing business plans to secure crucial funding from investors and banks. But we also know that your business plan isn’t just a presentation to impress your stakeholders. We’ll provide you with a working document that you can use to develop, manage and grow your business.

A strong written plan shared with everyone in your organisation is a powerful tool. You can use it to help your people understand and share your organisation’s goals, and appreciate the role they will play in the achievement of those goals. The plan is also essential for monitoring progress, as you can measure how well you are doing against your planned objectives.

Don’t know how to get started with business planning?

We will help you develop a defined vision and objectives for your business, and review your business as a whole including what has (and hasn’t) worked for your previously.

If you are a new start company, you’re in good hands. We’ll help you identify the keys to success in your business, and integrate them into your business plans.

With the vision and objective-setting complete, we can start to put together the plan covering the following areas:

1: The business background
2: The vision for the company
3: SWOT Analysis
4: Short term and long term objectives
5: Products & services of the business
6: Target customers and clients of the business
7: The target market and competition
8: Routes to market
9: Sales & Marketing plan
10: Your people – HR plan
11: The operating processes of your business
12: Summary sales plans
13: Financial projections for the company
14: Plans for the long term of the business

When you’re in the business, day in, day out, pulling together a plan incorporating this depth of information can be a struggle.

What our clients say:

When I took the plunge to start up in business, I was overwhelmed by the huge task ahead of me, my J K consultant helped me put my initial business idea into a strategic business plan which was instrumental in securing the funding that was required to start the business. She also introduced me to some excellent suppliers and professionals which saved me time and money…. My consultant also filled in all of the paperwork that was required to register the company and HMRC taxes and finally she worked with me to develop my sales and marketing skills to gain my first customer! Five years later my business now employees 20 staff and my J K consultant still provides me with an objective overview of the business which has helped me to make some very important decisions, critical to the development and success of my company
