What you need for a comprehensive business plan

Quite a few documents are required to produce a business plan. These vary depending on whether you are creating, expanding or restructuring the company.

To create a comprehensive business plan, a whole series of appendices is needed.

For setting up a new business:


  • Excerpt from the debt collection register
  • Planned balance sheet and profit and loss account
  • Liquidity planning
  • (potentially) Copies of existing loan or leasing agreements
  • (potentially) Guarantees, filing excerpts, real estate valuation


  • Excerpt from trade register (if company already exists)
  • Brochures for other companies, products and potentially, the competition
  • Market analysis
  • Schedules
  • Reference letters, certificates of employment

For expansion of commercial activity or restructuring

  • Certified annual financial statements containing balance sheet, profit and loss statement and appended notes
  • Interim statement with indication of debtors and creditors 
  • Cash flow statement
  • Business plans (machines, locations, etc.)
  • Contracts (holdings, cooperation, licenses, trademarks, etc.)
  • Tax returns, filing excerpts, real estate valuation
