TIPS TO CONSIDER WHEN COMPILING A BUSINESS PLAN The first thing to do if you would like to start a business is to think through all the details of the business and to compile a business plan. Some of the basic questions that need to be answered in the business plan are: TIP 1 TIP 2 TIP 3 What type of business would you like to start? How will the day-to-day running of the business work? Include all the background documents that will prove to the hub or fund managers that your business could succeed. A BASIC OUTLINE OF WHAT YOUR BUSINESS PLAN NEEDS TO INCLUDE 1. Introduce the business. Include some background information on your business. This background should tell us what your business is about, what industry or sector it forms part of, and what product or service it will offer. We would also like to know how you developed the idea for the business and who the shareholders will be. • What raw materials you need. • How you will produce your product and deliver it to your customers and how much will you produce. • How you will make sure your equipment is kept in a good condition. • How much stock you need to meet your customers’ needs. 2. The market you will serve is important for us to know about. (The word “market” means the kind and amount of customers who will be interested in buying your products or services.) Information about your market should include: • What your target market is, what their needs and wants are and other businesses already successfully supplying this market. • What size the market is and the demand for your product or service. • Is there a demand for these products or services. • If you will be involved in imports or exports. • If there are any signs from the past and the present that show that your market could grow in the future. • What the prices and quality of your services or products are. • Marketing and communication: How you will let your market know about your business and get people interested in buying from you. • How have you studied your market and know what its needs are. 5. As far as the people who manage and work in your business are concerned, we need to see: • A diagram (called an “organogram”) to show the different job positions in your business and how they relate to one another. • A brief description of the most important managers. • People and skills needed and tasks people will perform. • The training that will be needed to develop your employees. • The salaries that employees will earn and any bonuses. 3. Tell us in your plan about the opportunities that exist for your business. • Where you would like to see your business in five to ten years. • What do you want to achieve and how you will achieve it. • What are the strengths and threats of your business. • What the threats are that could lead to your business failing. • If you have any networks (groups of people you know) that could help your business succeed. You should also tell us in your business plan about any legal agreements and insurance policies that your business will need. 4. There are also some practical things we need to know about running your business: • Where you will run your business from. 6. Your business will need strong financial systems in place, so tell us as much as you can about your business finances: • All relevant documents about the finances of your business from the past three years (if your business already exists). • How you expect your financial statements to look for the next three years and why. • What the financial requirements of your business are. • Accounting policies for your business. Ensure that you gather all the necessary documentation that you need to submit with your business plan: • Proof of residence, this is either a recent utility bill (water, rates, electricity, etc) that has been sent to your address or you will need a letter from the person you are living with, stating that you do live with him/her with a copy of their identification document and one of their utility bills. • A copy of your identity document • Three months’ bank statements • Tax certificate CONTACT 0860 ZIMELE (946353) +27 11 638 2725 (Corporate Communications and Branding) Visit www.angloamerican.co.za Zimele Hub Visit a small business hub [email protected] Speak directly to the contact person for each fund listed All figures quoted in this brochure are drawn from Anglo American’s 2011 Annual Report stated in rand.
