Business Strategy

If you are starting a money services business (MSB), you need to take even more careful steps than other types of businesses. This is because there are many regulations and requirements that apply to MSBs that do not apply to other companies. It is important that you have a professional business strategy consultant guiding you through this process. 

Business Plan Development

Every business should have an airtight business plan. This plan will help your organization toward success in many different ways, including:

  • Laying out clear goals for your business and allowing you to track progress toward those goals
  • Helping you make critical decisions
  • Helping to address any hiccups or obstacles
  • Giving you information to avoid making significant mistakes
  • Proving your company’s viability to investors and banks
  • Communicating your benchmarks and objectives clearly
  • Providing guidance to service providers
  • Seeing how your business fits in within the larger market
  • Reducing risk

In order for your business plan to be effective, you need to make sure it is properly considered and drafted, and our professional team can walk you through this process. 

While it can vary from business to business, there are some important components of a business plan, which are:

  1. An executive summary
  2. Description of the business
  3. Market analysis
  4. Competition analysis
  5. Descriptions of the company organization and management structure
  6. Detailed description of your services or products
  7. Marketing plan and sale strategy
  8. Funding requests or goals
  9. Financial projections

As an entrepreneur, you might have an idea of all of these issues, but you might not know how to communicate them in a detailed and concise manner to give others an accurate understanding of your business. Our team can help you design a business plan that not only benefits your company’s leaders, but also helps you obtain the financing and other resources your company needs from outside sources.

Bank Introductions

When it comes to your company’s financial accounts, you might assume that you can simply walk into a bank and open up the accounts that you need and obtain financing. However, banks have to be extremely careful in this legal landscape, as they must take proper precautions against the risk of money laundering and other illegal financial activities using their accounts. 

At Bates Group LLC, our team can make introductions between your MSB and banks. We can ensure that your company has the right anti-money laundering policies in place to demonstrate to banks that you take compliance very seriously. We also assist in completing all paperwork in compliance with “Know Your Client” requirements and ensure that you present all necessary supporting documentation. This can help guarantee that you will have the banking support your business needs.
