Are you selling part of or your entire business?

Perhaps you are looking to buy a business? If you are selling your business, make sure you do not lose out on all the years of hard work and sleepless nights you have put in by pricing it too low. And if you are buying a business, gain confidence that you are not overpaying for the asset.

As South Africa’s leading Business Plan Company, JTB Consulting has extensive experience in dealing with thousands of clients across numerous industries, markets, and countries.

One of our core services is our Expert Business Valuation and Modelling Service that we offer to entrepreneurs and business executives of small- to medium-sized companies.

Our Business Valuation and Modelling Service provides clients with key information on the essential drivers of business value that affect their company interests. Our business valuation reports are succinct and focus on providing accurate executive dashboards and supporting information to provide tangible value to executives.

We appreciate that all our clients operate in unique industries and markets. As such, unique businesses require unique insights. Value creation is key to business and transaction success.

At JTB Consulting, our Business Valuation and Modelling Service help businesses make decisions confidently, enhancing their results and helping them get ahead of key issues. JTB Consulting offers extensive experience in business valuing, financial modelling, business- analysis and planning.

Several valuation methods are used to determine the value of a company. JTB Consulting employs a combination of methods to develop mutually supporting evidence towards the business valuation conclusion.

JTB Consulting’s Business Valuation and Modelling Service provide an independent assessment of the value of your business that is objective, insightful and justifiable.

Our detailed analysis indicates the future potential for your company and is an essential tool for many planning strategies. Several circumstances call for a business valuation, and our team will assist you in making a knowledgeable and value-driven business decision.

As a high-level summary, when we conduct a Business Analysis and Valuation project on behalf of our clients, we consider the following factors:

With our Business Valuation and Modelling Service, JTB Consulting investigates both the Financial Performance of the client company and the Non-Financial Aspects (which are sometimes subjective and intangible in nature).

During our Financial Analysis of the business, we use Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) as our primary valuation methodology, as it is widely considered the most theoretically robust. In terms of our Non-Financial Analysis of the business, we consider various components, including management depth, supplier- and customer relationships, internal- and external risks, and competitors, to name but a few.

Global Immigration and Visa Application Programs require different criteria than banks and private investors.

Immigration and Visa Business Plans must meet specific requirements and deliverables under different country immigration programs. Our team knows the ins and outs of these programs. We ensure that all criteria are met, improving the chances of success, and providing our clients with the best possible outcome for their application.

If you are planning to immigrate to the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, or Ireland, and can show that you have a viable business idea and present a well-documented business plan to the government, they are significantly more likely to fast track your approval, which will allow you to live and start a business in their country.

To be approved for any of these visas, you will need a Comprehensive Business Plan. Many of those seeking legal immigration status attempt to create a document that satisfies these complex visa requirements on their own. Even though they may have a strong business idea, without the experience or expertise required to write an Immigration and Visa Business Plan, they are unable to satisfy all the requirements. This means that their visa application is not approved immediately (or sometimes at all).

Each of our Immigration and Visa Business Plans have unique aspects, written around the destination country and industry of choice. We do not have a “one-size-fits all template or process” to guarantee your entrepreneurial idea’s approval. We treat every Client’s request as unique, taking their specific requirements into account. Not having a well-written Immigration and Visa Business Plan is a sure-fire way to get rejected. 

As South Africa’s leading Business Plan Company, JTB Consulting has extensive experience in dealing with thousands of clients across numerous industries, markets, and countries. We have written thousands of Business Plans, thereby allowing us to confidently provide you with a world-class Business Plan that attains results.

An integral part of our Business Plan Writing Service is our market research.

Depending on your specific needs, we conduct comprehensive (desktop/secondary) market research. A detailed market- and industry analysis reveals valuable information and facts on the market and competitors, clients, risks, opportunities, and the overall attractiveness of the business venture. Our dedicated Market Research Team supports our Business Plan Consultants with invaluable market insights, strategic advice, and recommendations on your business venture.

Market Research is essential for the survival and growth of your business. It enables you to improve the competitive nature of your business and reduce your risks. Far too many companies embark on projects or ventures without proper market research. Good entrepreneurs are, in fact, risk minimisers rather than risk-takers, and market research is the primary tool that enables you to reduce risks. Our team can conduct desktop market research across most countries, industries, and markets at a fraction of the price it would cost you to engage a primary market research consultancy.

Each Professional Business Plan must include Financial Forecasts.

With our unique Financial Projections service, you can confidently communicate your idea in numbers. See your data come alive with our sharp and accurate charts and management dashboards for all key reports – expense, revenue, payroll, and capital.

No prior business experience or not good with numbers?

No problem. With JTB Consulting, you don’t have to worry about navigating complex spreadsheets. Whether you are starting a business or are already operating, we’ve got you covered with our extensive forecasting options. Get accurate Excel models and reports for all business areas and evaluate your company’s financial standing. We will accurately design and calculate all your financial reports, including:

The story you tell about your idea, team and concept is what will ultimately determine if your Pitch Deck is appealing or not.

Existing companies primarily use Pitch Decks to convey a new project to stakeholders, while startup companies use it to present a new business idea.

A Pitch Deck (in cases referred to as a Prospectus) is a brief presentation (created using PowerPoint) that provides your audience with a professional overview of your Professional Business Plan. You will generally use your Pitch Deck during face-to-face or online meetings with potential investors, customers, partners, and co-founders. If your audience doesn’t have the time or inclination to read through a lengthy Business Plan, an Investor Pitch Deck will most certainly be the best alternative.

JTB is so much more than just a Business Plan Company.

Commonly, businesses that have not found a business coach or a mentor haven’t done so because they believe it’s a costly relationship they can’t afford. The truth is, this is a relationship that you cannot do without!

As an entrepreneur, you started as a specialist: You had a great idea for a business, and you launched. As a newfound business owner, you’re now stuck with the job of the generalist. This can work for a while, but you’ll soon realise that you don’t have time to stay on top of all the things you need to do or challenges too complicated for your experience. You can continue to wing it, or you can get some help.

As SME Coaches, we help your business tackle specific tasks and objectives. The relationship with a business coach is most often short term, but we help set the targets and determine the number of sessions needed to meet your goals. Our SME Coaching and Consultation Sessions can be conducted face-to-face, via telephone, or Video.

We offer a world-class Tender Writing and Proposal Writing service to local and international clients.

If you’ve got an important tender or proposal opportunity coming up, we’ll apply our combined experience of nearly 40 years in tender writing and management to help you win. We’ve managed and written hundreds of tender and proposal responses since 2006, helping our clients to win tens of millions of Rands in new business. 70% of our tender clients are either successful or at the least, shortlisted.

Savvy business owners understand that winning a tender or proposal can change their business’ future. Whether you have the opportunity to respond to a government tender or to a request for proposal for a new business contract from a publicly listed or privately owned organisation, success can be the difference between sleepless nights and long-term financial security. It also looks great to have a major contract in your client list for your own marketing.

Our clients often have very limited time available. Some have tendered before but without success. Others are new to tendering and don’t know where to start. Whatever their circumstances, they seek our expertise and guidance on writing compelling tenders and proposals to maximise their opportunity for tender success.

Writing tenders and writing proposals, however, is a daunting task for any organisation that isn’t used to the process. Submitting successful tender responses is time consuming. It requires careful planning from the beginning. Your tender or proposal response must align with what the potential client is looking for and the best way to do this is to identify your key selling points. And there’s often considerable compliance requirements to address, especially for government tenders. Even for those who regularly tender for new business, the process is challenging.


We write Bankable Business Plans. Understand the most vital aspects to consider when deciding which Business Consulting Services Company to partner with.

A Business Plan is an integral part of your entrepreneurial journey, and is perhaps the most critical document you will ever need. Not only will you use it as a strategic guideline to manage your business, but you will need a Business Plan to present to various stakeholders, including banks, funders, suppliers, landlords, potential shareholders, investors, and many more. So, sifting through all the Business Plan Consultants and deciding who to partner with will be one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.

Interesting fact.
There are only 24 hours a day, and as a business owner, you need all the time you can get!
