Sample Cost and Financing Sheet

The cost and financing section is important because it breaks down all of your start up costs and financing. Lenders want to know: How much will the start up going to cost? And how are you going to finance it? Very important, especially if you are approaching lending and funding agencies. This is the cost and financing sheet for our fictitous company, ABC Cleaners.

ABC Cleaners is approaching SPA for funding contributions, and a bank for a loan. This is how they are going to structure their financing.
