Business Planning

Why we developed this service 

Success is about planning; we want to help you achieve success.

  • Do you have a current Business Plan? 
  • Have you set realistic and measurable goals?
  • Do you have clear strategies to achieve your goals? 
  • Do you regularly review your goals in regard to changing circumstances? 
  • A Business Planning session will require you to take time out from day to day activities in the business to focus on the business. Together we will review your past performance and clarify future direction. You will set solid and realistic business goals and define strategies for achievement. At the end of the session you will have a one page Business Plan which will act as a guide map to ensure you are on course for success.

 Who should have a Business Planning session
Every business should have a Business Plan. Would you like? 

  • To increase the level of growth, profitability and cashflow in your business? 
    Support to unlock your business potential? 
  • A clear outline of what you need to do to unlock this potential? 
  • A document against which to measure your progress? 
    What is involved?

You’ll attend a four hour planning session facilitated by PKF Bay of Islands 

 The key issues covered include:

  • Discussing and setting both personal and business goals for the next 12 months 
  • Discussing and agreeing on an action plan with strategies to support achievement of goals 
  • Identifying Gross Revenue Targets and Key Performance Indicators. 
  • Identifying opportunities and vulnerabilities in your business that need to be managed 
  • Establishing a 90 Day Action Plan to address immediate critical issues.

We'll provide you with pre-work, which you will need to complete prior to the Business Planning session to ensure you identify any issues that need to be discussed. That way together we can prepare any information required prior to the session. 

When should I have a session
Any time is a good time to develop a Business Plan if you don’t have one, however it's particularly relevant at the start of a new financial year. If you're contemplating a major change in your existing business or starting a new venture, a Business Plan is crucial. You'll also require a Business Plan to support any financial applications.
