There are many types of business plans and can also be referred to as strategic plans, investment plans, expansion plans, operational plans, annual plans, internal plans, growth plans, product plans, and feasibility plans.
In all these different varieties of business plans, the one to use will match your specific situation. For example, if you want a plan developed for internal use only, not for sending out to banks or investors, then we may not need to include all the background details that you already know. Description of the management team is very important for investors, while financial history is most important for banks.
The most common business plan is a start-up plan, which defines the steps for a new business. It covers standard topics including the company, product or service, market, forecasts, strategy, implementation milestones, management team, and financial analysis. The financial analysis includes projected sales, profit and loss, balance sheet, cash flow, and probably a few other tables. The plan starts with an executive summary and ends with appendices showing monthly projections for the first year.
