Price: $75 USD

Question description

Project Description:
Students are required to write a report on how they intend to finance their business during the first two years of trading. The report will also include recommendations on whether it is feasible to finance expansion overseas. The report should include, as a minimum, the following:

 A brief introduction to the business (including the current sources of finance)
 Mission and Values
 Finance aims and objectives
 Structure of the business
 Assessment of the demand, market and price
 Financial statements (including the start-costs, income statement and balance sheet, cash flow statement and Break Even analysis)
 Analysis of potential profitability and financial viability of the business.
 Finance control mechanisms (scenario and sensitivity analysis)
 An analysis of whether or not it is feasible to finance expansion to the countries/markets identified in the business plan. If overseas expansion is feasible, recommendations on how the business will finance such a move should also be included.

The word limit for the report is 7,000 words. Changes can be made to the original business plan presented on the 23rd Feb 2014 but a rationale must be provided.

All reports should be written in third person and accurately Harvard referenced within the report and also included in your References. A Bibliography should also be included.

Your report should include a Contents page. Each section of the report should be accurately numbered (e.g. 1.0: Introduction; 2.0: Findings; 3.0: Conclusion and 4.0: Recommendations – if required). This is not an essay and therefore, sub-headings should be included throughout the report (e.g. 2.0: Findings: first sub-heading 2.1, second sub-heading 2.2 etc.).

Your report MUST NOT include any unaltered, ‘cut and pasted’ diagrams/tables/charts. All diagrams, tables and charts must be amended by you to reflect the context of the organisation, sector or case study. The original diagrams/tables/charts must be sourced (e.g. adaptation of author, date). Any information/figures included in the table/chart/diagram must also be sourced). The prevalent use of tables to avoid exceeding the word count will be penalised.
