Business planning

Planning for your new pub business can be daunting, however we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you with simple templates.


Before giving you the keys to your new business, we need you to complete our application process. As part of this process you’ll be supplied with all the information you need about the pub you’re interested in.

Using this information, you’ll need to prepare a fully detailed sustainable business plan. This business plan must be prepared following consideration of independent professional advice, such as legal and financial. 

Your plan must include financial forecasts covering estimates of income and expenditure, a sensitivity analysis and cash flow analysis for a minimum of 5 years. In addition, we’ll require you to submit evidence of your independent professional advice by way of a letter from each of your advisors.

To make this easy we’ve created some simple templates for you:
