Start-up Costs Worksheet
You need an investment to start a new project or a new business.
Do you know what are you one-time costs of items that would still have a value later? (e.g. your assets such as equipment, furniture etc.)
Do you know what would your running costs be for a period of time (6 – 12 months)? These are your salaries, rent, utilities, etc.
There is no universal method for estimating your start-up costs.
To determine how much seed money you need to start, you must estimate the costs of doing business for the first months.
Some of these expenses will be one-time costs while others will be ongoing costs.
Decide whether they are essential or optional, and whether they are fixed or variable.
The most effective way to calculate your start-up costs is to use a worksheet that lists both one-time and ongoing costs.
