Stage 1. Plan your business

It’s important to spend some time and effort in the planning stage to give your new business the best chance of success. Writing a business plan will help you to focus on details of your financial goals, operational requirements and analyse the feasibility of the business. When you’re in the planning stage, you can work out the basics of running your business, how to manage finances and start setting some goals.

A documented business plan also makes it easier for investors, landlords and lenders to understand your goals and strategies, and in turn support your enterprise.

Stage 2. Set up your business 

You need to get the basics right when setting up your business, including registering your business, setting up bank accounts and working out how you want to handle payments. We have partnerships, business transaction accounts and 24/7 support from our business bankers to help you set up the business correctly from the start.
