Business owners or prospective business owners have access to even more business plan templates
, thanks to recent additions to a website that offers plans and supporting documents for free: BusinessPlanTemplate.net.
Site creator Kevin Savetz recently added seven new business plan-related forms to BusinessPlanTemplate.net, so there are now 16 checklists, worksheets, expense analyses and other tools useful in research and reporting information that could accompany a business plan.
"Many business owners write a business plan simply to get their thoughts in order and give their venture a better chance of success," Savetz said. "Often, a business plan is required in order for a startup or existing business to secure a bank or Small Business Administration (SBA) loan. These forms and plans will help in both situations."
The site includes business plan templates
for specific ventures such as a retail store, day care, coffee shop or music business. These sample plans are intended to be downloaded, opened in Microsoft Word (or another DOC-compatible program) and used as a framework to customize for the user's own situation. Some forms are available as XLS (Excel, etc.) files as well.
There are also fully customizable fill-in-the-blanks business plans and even a one-page business plan. The site also offers tips on how to write a business plan, what to avoid and other helpful information.
The newest forms include a pricing strategy form, a three-year financial worksheet, a business location evaluation, a goods contract checklist and more.
"Everything at BusinessPlanTemplate.net is free," Savetz reiterated. "It's one less expense to worry about when launching or expanding your business."
There are more than 80 sites in the FreePrintable.net family of free printables
