Normally any lender such as a bank that you approach for funding for your new driveway business will want to see that you have invested some money in the project yourself.
This might include:
- 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 it will be needed or is expected to be received.
