CHAPTER 16(Pic uploaded)
- Provide details of any firm orders on hand.
- Provide details of all customers you expect to sell to over the forecast period, and how much you expect to sell to each.
- Give market research data that support or verify these forecasts. This is particularly important for ventures in the retail field, for example, when names of customers are not necessarily known in advance.
- Prepare a sales forecast by value and volume for each major product group (eg for a hotel: bedrooms, restaurant, off-licence) throughout the whole period of the business plan – eg up to five years (monthly for years one and two and quarterly thereafter).
- Support your forecast with examples from other similar ventures started recently, and drawing from company accounts and other sources.
- Give an estimate of the likely market share that these forecasts imply.
