BUSINESS PLAN AND FEASIBILITY STUDIES
Feasibility studies are crucial during the early development of any project and form a vital component in the business development process. Accounting and Advisory feasibility studies enable organizations to assess the viability, cost and benefits of projects before financial resources are allocated. They also provide independent project assessment and enhance project credibility. Built on the information provided in the feasibility study, a business case is used to convince the audience that a particular project should be implemented. It is often a pre-requisite for any funding approval. The business case will detail the reasons why a particular project should be prioritized higher than others. It will also sum up the strengths, weaknesses and validity of assumptions as well as assessing the financial and non-financial costs and benefits underlying preferred options.
