The Importance Of Having A Business Plan

While writing a business plan can be made into a highly sophisticated undertaking especially by large corporations, its easy to do when done for a new or small owner operated-business.

Essentially, you will be committing your plan to paper.



 As you do so your thought will become more formal and concrete and this will tremendously assist you in the development of your business.







If you are considering to obtain financing for your new business either through a bank or the SBA, a formal business plan will be a necessity.

Home-operated businesses will have a much more difficult time in obtaining financing.

As in all undertakings of life from birth to death and beyond, the IRS will be there to watch over you.

Almost all small, home-based businesses will start out as "Sole Proprietorship."

 This legal status is best for ease of handling and for tax benefits.

Your net business income or loss becomes an addition or deduction to other income declare at the end of the year.

Careful record-keeping of all business revenue and expenses is a must.

Keep a separate business checking amount for your business.

Do not intermingle business and personal expenses.

Other special tax benefits and regulations apply to home-operated businesses.

You should obtain professional advise from your tax adviser.

Insurance

One disadvantage of being self-employed is not having health and disability insurance.

You may also need liability insurance.

Your homeowners insurance covers your belongings in your home, but it may not cover all business inventory and equipment.

Check with your insurance agent to make sure you have the right coverage.

Best Wishes.
