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

This might include:

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