Plan for business success

Are you thinking of starting a new business but don’t know where to start? Or have you started a business, but need to learn more, or do some more planning and preparation? Get business-ready with Business Victoria’s Business Planning Tool.

The Business Planning Tool covers the essential information you need to start your business. It helps you to focus on the important things you need to do to set up or grow your business.

How it works

To use the tool, you need to register for an account on the Business Victoria website. The tool is free: all you need is an email address and a password.

Once you’re registered, you can work through the information at your own pace. The tool is easy to use, and steps you through the different business areas you need to know about to run a micro or small business.

Once you’ve completed the modules, you’ll be ready to go!

Further information

  • You’ll find the Business Planning Tool on Business Victoria’s website. You need to set up an account and password to get started.
  • Businesses that plan ahead are more likely to succeed. To learn more about planning your business, read the Business Victoria guide Write a Business Plan. Your business plan describes what you want your business to be, and the steps you need to take to get there.
  • Business Victoria offers a range of advice services for new business owners. Think about doing one of their business workshops, or visiting the Small Business Bus. You can book through the Business Victoria website.
  • If you’re a new business owner it can be hard to know what steps to take. Talking to others can be helpful. Maybe talk to other business owners, a mentor or business coach. Or perhaps you could join a local council small business group.
