Builder: Capital introduced

Normally any lender such as a bank that you approach for funding for your new construction business will want to see that you have invested some money in the venture yourself.

This might include:

  • savings
  • a lump sum that you expect to receive - for example, repayment of pension contributions on leaving employment, or a redundancy payment
  • the sale of a non-business asset

Enter in the cash flow the amount of money you will put into the business, in the months when you'll need it or expect to receive it.
