Business Plan Financial Section

Business Plan Articles

Many companies that are requesting financing from a bank, investor, or immigration will need financial projections. These projections will need to cover several factors in order to demonstrate your company’s ability to properly perform budgeting and risk analysis. Pro Business Plans has worked with a number of companies to provide the financial projections and cover the section specific for your plan.

Financial Section

The financial section of the business plan typically includes revenue projections, financial budgeting, and overall risk analysis. Any stakeholder including potential partners or investors will want to know the feasibility of the project given the estimations for financial performance. The most effective approach for the financial section is to use your company’s prior operating history, or the history of similar companies in your industry. When this process is properly followed, readers will be more likely to provide credentials behind the financial section rather than arbitrarily making estimations. The following sections are included in the financial write up section by Pro Business Plans:

Revenue Projections

The revenue model must make logical sense and be based on industry standards. Some companies that estimate overly optimistic conversion rates or average customer spend may be seen as overly risky and the financials will be disregarded. In contrast, overly conservative revenue projections reflect a management team that may be unable to take calculated risks when they become available.




Expense Forecasts

The expense forecast for a business plan should typically be very conservative and include research based on the typical budget for the industry. Remember that many established companies have different budgeting structures that start-ups, so even using a percentage of spend for various departments may not be adequate. The typical expense sections covered include, marketing, research & development, operations, and payroll.




Risk Analysis

There are several financial ratios that investors use to rapidly compare one investment to alternatives. The risk analysis section is particularly important if your business has an established operating history so that one may compare its risk relative to competitors in your industry. For instance, we perform a scenario analysis in order to determine the spread of variance across multiple events that may impact the profitability of your company.
