This thesis will focus on the study of developing a business plan for a small home-based accounting and tax service .
Statistics indicate that the failure rate for new businesses is high. Research indicates that the main reason for the high rate of new business failures is lack of planning . Specifically, many entrepreneurs feel that preparing a formal business plan is not necessary and thus fail to plan for significant factors that impact their businesses.
The purpose of this study is to research all aspects of beginning a home- based accounting and tax service in preparation for writing a business plan for Baker Accounting and Tax Service .
Once the business plan was prepared, two business executives were asked to read the business plan and provide comments to indicate additional research or restructuring to improve the quality of the plan .
The results of this research has rendered a business plan for Baker Accounting and Tax Service.
