The cost of purchasing a patent can be capitalized as a long term asset in the balance sheet and amortized over its useful life. Research and development costs incurred in developing a product which is later patented are normally not capitalized and are treated as an expense in the income statement.

The cost of capital for a business is the average of the cost of equity and the cost of debt. The weighted average cost of capital formula (WACC) takes into account the level of debt and equity finance used to fund a business to calculate its true cost of capital.

The accounting equation may be expressed as Assets = Liabilities + Equity and is the basis for all accounting using the double entry bookkeeping system. One side of the equation shows the assets of the business whereas the other shows how those assets are funded. The basic accounting equation underlies all financial projections based on the three statement financial model.

The financial projections template produces an income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement for the business. These 3 financial statements appear initially to be unconnected; however, closer investigation shows that they are linked and a change in one statement substantially impacts the other statements. The entrepreneur need to understand these connections in order to be able to understand the financial performance of the business.

The business life cycle model uses 4 stages start-up, growth, maturity, and decline to define the different phases a business will experience in its lifetime. Each stage comes with its own characteristics and problems to solve, and the business must determine which stage has been reached in order to be able to plan and forecast effectively.
