You will find that setting up a new business brings many potential pitfalls. This is particularly so for the inexperienced or the unprepared. Not least of these challenges is the matter of adequate finance. You must do everything possible to start with enough funds. All too often at BFS we see the results of businesses that have been started with insufficient finance.

Things to bear in mind

In the first flush of enthusiasm for a new business it is easy to get two basic assumptions wrong.

The first of these is the time that it will take you to generate genuine revenue and particularly profitable revenue.

The second is the true costs of setting up and running the business until the aforementioned revenue is generated.

Thus it is essential to ensure that your start-up business has sufficient cash reserves to carry it through the pre-revenue/pre-profit stages. The old saying of “Cash flow is King” was never truer than with a start-up business.
