View Full Version : Business forecasting

05-10-2004, 08:59 PM
I am looking to take over an existing business and am at present doing a sales forecast. My question is can I find out the current sales of the business on the web, I have been told you can do this! If not can I ask the current owner for them?
Also I am unemployed and at present do not have money to get an accountant to help with forecasts or a solicitor for advice so are there any free services that I can use to look over my business plan and help with forecasts.

You have every right to see all of the business' accounts:


As you are unemployed at present, it may be worthwhile seeing if you qualify for any support from the New Deal scheme for people looking to start their own business:


Good luck, and keep us informed of your progress,
