How to work out your start up costs

There’s a lot to think about when starting a business and it’s easy to overlook some of things you’ll need to pay out for. You can get excited thinking about shiny new equipment but forget about the not-so-fun things like utility bills and insurance. 

That’s why we’ve created this simple-to-use startup costs calculator. We’ve collated some of the main costs you’ll need to factor into your initial launch and operational plan. The calculator will add those costs together to give you a realistic idea of your overall costs. In turn, you’ll have a much better understanding of how much revenue you’ll need to generate to break even and turn a profit.

I’ve been working through the how to start a business in 20 days ebook and so many of the things I’d done are now nicely tied together and some gaps now filled. I love the simplicity. Thank you.
