APPENDICES OF A BUSINESS PLAN
The appendices section of your business plan is used to provide readers with information and documents that support your claims made throughout the business plan.

In realty through, most investors want to see the information sources used by the business plan writer/entrepreneur.
By creating a well organized and thoughtout appendices, you are ultimately enhancing your credibility as a person and an entrepreneur. And you must be a creditable source before an investor will trust you with their money.
The documents placed in your appendices may include, but not restricted to, the following items:
TWO FINAL NOTES:
- Be sure to make reference, in the body of your business plan, to each appendices item. Don't include a document or other information sources in the appendices just to occupy space. If its needed include it; if it's not needed exclude it.
- Be sure to prepare a table of contents for your appendices. This will provide the reader with a quick view of your appendix items. Organize your appendices' table of contents in the order in which they are referred to in the body of the business plan.
