When starting a business, facts and figures change on a regular basis as markets, economies and circumstances fluctuate. However, you never know when a potential investor will come your way and you need to hand over your business plan. Therefore, it is recommended to update your business plan every 90 days. Each section of the business plan should reflect the most current information. There are 3 main changes which will need to be made:

  1. Internal Changes – Ensure the Management Team section explains each person’s responsibilities. For start-ups, this changes often as the executives may need to do more work then originally anticipated. If the products or services change with regards to their production, manufacturing, distribution channels, or functionality, express the changes in the Company Summary section. Lastly, update the Operational Plan section to express the new tasks you have accomplished, and new obstacles which have been presented.
  2. Market Changes – Continuously update the market information in the business plan as these type of changes occur on a daily or weekly basis. Statistics, figures and market news should reflect the most current information available.
  3. Monetary Changes – Start-up costs change regularly as well which will have an affect on all financial projections. Investors will investigate costs and projections to ensure they are accurate and were well researched. It is important to impress them in this area as they will not want to invest in a company who does not know their own costs.
