Don't spend money on a designer _ Creating a website using a template is much cheaper than hiring a designer. In fact, you can expect to save hundreds, maybe even thousands of pounds if you use a template instead of a designer. But will the end result be as professional? Combining large amounts of information with easy navigation is integral to an estate agency website and might sound like something you should leave to a professional. But yes, you can get a template that does as good a job.
Once this person has a financial template, they can use it to create forms the template will simply guide them through. The mere fact that the template has certain line items _ like the Balance Sheet, for example, forces you to think in a well_organized fashion and gather the information according to the structure of the template _ cash balances, accounts receivable, fixed assets, liabilities, etc. The same goes for a Business Plan. A well_designed financial template can steer you away from making some fundamental mistakes. A client of mine brought me a self_prepared Business Plan once and we both smiled at the many line items he had on his Profit & Loss statement which really belonged on a Balance Sheet. With a professionally designed template, he wouldn't have made that mistake.
