There is a generic template that is available for all types of businesses. To make a business plan template, you need to modify the standard template that is suitable for your industry and business. The style of writing, the overall organization and the presentation of the ideas is what makes a good business plan template. Creating a template involves a significant amount of research, re-thinking and planning. Detailed notes regarding the sources of information and the underlying assumptions that support the financial data and information must be kept carefully for quick and easy reference as and when needed.

Keep your business information handy so that you are not searching for it when you need to input information. A sample template will cover all of the different areas in which you should prepare your business plan. You will need to create a strategy and marketing plan. Then you must account for profit and loss. You will need a balance sheet and a cash flow statement.
