Can a Business Plan Help My Small Business or Limited Company Startup?

A business plan is essential for every business. Failing to plan your business is the first step toward planning to fail. Recording your ideas, plans and strategies are essential given the ongoing sluggish economy when so many business owners are struggling to maintain profitability and cash flow.

Planning includes:

  • Taking prudent, calculated risks rather than blindly reacting to events
  • Making the best use of available resources
  • Developing your plan so that you can achieve the lifestyle you want


When planning, we will help you to consider:

  • What information you need to assemble
  • The initial decisions to be made
  • The sales and marketing options open to you
  • The market opportunities that exist
  • The threats that exist.

Payments on account of income tax (and class 4 national insurance contributions) for a particular tax year will be due on 31 January in the tax year and 31 July following the end of the tax year. These payments will be based on one-half of the total income tax liability (less any tax deducted at source) for the previous tax year. You have the right to reduce payments on account if you believe the income tax for the current year will be lower than that for the previous year. However, you may be charged interest if the reduction is more than it should be and penalties can be charged if you did not take care with the application to reduce.
