Business Plan Appendices For a business plan to flow smoothly and to enhance its readability, it is important to minimize excessive details and background information. That?s where the appendices come in handy. Instead of including a lengthy piece of information directly in the body of your plan, you can make reference to it and request that the reader refer to the appendices for further details. Appendices should include any exhibits, supporting documents or data that you referred to or referenced within the written sections of your business plan. Make sure all copies that you include are legible and complete. Here is a list of what can often be found in a business plan?s appendices:
  • Management Resumes
  • Blueprints or Diagrams
  • Legal Contracts or Documentation
  • Leases or Rental Agreements
  • Personal Financial Statements and Credit Reports
  • Demographic Data
  • Newspaper or Magazine Articles
  • Letters of Reference

  • Financial Pro Formas
  • Product Samples and Marketing Literature
  • Press Coverage or Clippings
  • Photos of the Business or Product
  • Customer Contracts or Letters of Intent
