Creating the right financial forecasts for your business is often the hardest part of writing a business plan.

It's so complicated that most business plan templates that you can download don't even include financial forecasts.

LivePlan's template makes it easy with step-by-step forecasting tools. So, even if you've never started a business before, you can build all of the financial reports investors expect to see.

You'll get a complete profit & loss statement, cash flow forecast, balance sheet, and more - all without ever having to look at a spreadsheet or worry about breaking a formula.

LivePlan's financial forecasts are guaranteed accurate so you'll rest easy.

Instructions & examples at every step

Don't worry about staring at a blank business plan template wondering what to write. LivePlan is there at every step with instructions, examples, and a library of over 500 business plan examples so you'll never be stuck.

LivePlan asks you key questions about your business that other templates skip, helping you build not only a business plan that will impress any banker or investor, but a better business - even if you don't have a business degree.

Collaboration made easy

With LivePlan, there's no need to email business plan drafts back and forth. Just invite your business partners to your plan and collaborate in real-time on your plan. Don't worry about working on the latest version and get your plan done faster.

Skip the hassle of Word and Excel Business Plan Templates

You could always write your business plan with Word and Excel, but you'll end up spending countless extra hours figuring out how to get an impressive-looking document.

Word and Excel templates also lack instructions, examples from successful business plans, and they often require in-depth financial knowledge.

LivePlan's step-by-step business plan template guides you every step of the way, so you don't have to worry about formatting, getting the formulas right in some downloaded spreadsheet, or making sure your plan is in an approved format that banks and lenders expect.

Instead of wasting time figuring out how to build the perfect business plan, you should use a tool that takes the hassle out of business plan writing and ensures that you'll have a complete and effective business plan that will impress your audience.

LivePlan helps you track your performance as you grow, define the tasks you need to get your business to the next level, and even lets you compare your plan against the competition.
