Fast & Affordable Business Plan Writers


We can help you start your business, secure investment, get a Startup Loan or a Visa.


SGI Consultants are experienced professional business plan writers who write high-quality, bespoke business plans to help you attract investors, secure a bank loan or obtain approval from landlords or regulatory organisations.

All businesses should have a business plan. It is an essential document that provides a description and framework of your business’s future. Your business plan should explain your business strategy and fundamental goals to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

Most people need help to write a business plan, and most self-written business plans need to be more comprehensive to get funding.

When you work with one of our business plan writers, you will get more than a business plan; you get a complete business service that helps you achieve your goals. Your business plan will be structured using our Business Success Formula, which lays the foundation for your success.

We only write bespoke business plans, written just for your business.  All business plans include market research, competitor analysis and financial projections (P&L, Cash Flow, Balance Sheet, Business Valuation & Break-Even Analysis).

Our business planning service's primary goal is to help you take the next step in your business development.

Whether you need a business plan for:

  • A business loan or startup loan
  • To secure investment from Angel Investors, VCs or Crowdfunding platforms
  • Get endorsement for an Innovator Founder Visa or Global Expansion Worker Visa.
  • Send to a landlord or agent to secure a property
  • Test the viability of your business.
  • To manage your business performance.

Our experienced business plan writers have helped over 1,800 entrepreneurs start and raise funding through our proven business planning process. We maintain an exceptional funding success rate of over 90% because of our meticulous approach rooted in startup best practices.

Business Plan Types We Write


Loans 

A loan business plan should focus on demonstrating repayment ability, financial management capabilities, and risk mitigation. Project realistic cash flows, include collateral/security details, and outline measures in place to ensure consistent profits.

Investment 

An investment business plan should highlight large market opportunities, key competitive advantages and IP, projections of high returns, and strengths of the leadership team. The goal is to get investors excited about growth potential.

Visas 

A visa business plan must thoroughly validate your startup's viability and significant growth prospects in the UK market. This includes extensive market research and competitor analysis to demonstrate a clear customer need and gap in the competitive landscape. The plan should also include five years of realistic yet ambitious financial projections for revenue and jobs created. Finally, you must detail how you will invest visa funds into UK growth, including specifics on expenditures over two years and the precise impact on target customer acquisition, product development, hiring projections and other expansion metrics. 

Established Businesses

Existing companies need business plans when entering new growth stages. These plans detail expansion goals, new marketing initiatives, partnerships and hires to support scaling, and updated financials connected to these growth strategies.

The cost of hiring someone to write a business plan varies depending on the length and complexity of the plan. However, you can expect to pay anywhere from £350 to £3,000 for professional business plan services.
Our business plan writers have worked with clients across every industry - tech, healthcare, consumer products, manufacturing, professional services, hospitality, retail, and more. We've helped 1000+ companies with customized plans specific to their industry.

We also offer payment plans.
Register your interest, and a Business Plan consultant will contact you and provide you with a personalised quotation for your business.
There are four types of business plans: traditional, lean, startup, and micro. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages, so you'll need to select the right one for your company based on your needs.
A business plan writer/business plan consultant is a business and financial expert who can help guide you through creating a business plan and do much of the work in writing and preparing the financial analysis involved in making it. A business plan writer usually takes the lead in preparing your business plan. A business plan consultant will advise you on how to prepare your business plan. Our service combines both.

The three most important purposes of a business plan are:

  • To create an effective strategy for growth.
  • To determine your future financial needs.
  • To secure a loan or attract investors (including angel investors and VC funding) and lenders.
The length of a business plan can vary depending on the specific business and its needs. It also depends on the intended audience for your business plan. For instance, some Investors may need more analysis than a loan provider. However, most business plans are between 15-and 30 pages of content. Speak to your business plan writer about the intended audience; he/she may recommend making two or more separate plans for different audiences.
There is no one answer to this question, as many factors can contribute to the failure of a business plan. However, some common reasons why business plans fail include unrealistic goals, lack of market research, and insufficient funding. Without a well-thought-out plan that considers all aspects of the business, it is likely to face difficulties down the road. Our business plan writers will always be upfront with you about the viability of your business and will provide an assessment of your chances of raising funding.
While we can't guarantee funding, our plans are designed to meet investor and lender requirements. Over 85% of our clients secure funding thanks to our formulaic approach, financial modelling, and presentation quality plans. But ultimately, funding depends on your business viability and metrics.
Yes, we provide one year of revision support. As your business evolves, connect with your writer, and we will update the plan at no additional cost within the first year following delivery.
