Grow Your Business

Once you've established your business, you then face a number of decisions in terms of expansion and growth. Our advisers are uniquely equipped to support you through this exciting stage of the business process.

Experience has taught us how best to do this, so we've designed a set of products to meet a growing business person's needs or we can tailor something specific for you. Depending on where your business is based and the type of support you need, we may be able to access funding to subsidise or offset the cost of this service.

The team at BIP will be happy to help you and talk you through the various options.

Business Planning - If you are looking to grow your business, one of the challenges is to ensure that you have gained a vantage point by understanding, why and how it will grow plus assessing when your ambitions will be achieved. Our advisers are experts in helping you pull together a business plan that can be utilised in the business, but also assist in any funding requirements from banks and other financial sources.

Business Funding - If you are interested in what growth funding your business may be eligible for and how we can help you with the application process go to our funding page to find out more.
