Constructing your business plan would also require branding, and we will need your logo to do that accurately, however, if you do not have a logo we will design one for you free of charge as part of the package; in accordance with your industry specification. However, we will charge you an extra R 1 500. 00 if your company profile is not designed professionally; this will only apply if part of the submission requires a company profile as it is with most submissions.
