Bangalore: One of the most toughest and difficult task figuring out what it's going to cost you to start. Infact it’s a barrier for any entrepreneur to cross. Many a times this startup cost is underestimated and almost always subject to change. You need to have an accurate estimate of start-up costs in order to reasonably predict your financial performance in the first few quarters. The cost requirements are different for different industries. At this stage where you are still evaluating the cost of your startup, many of your items are going to be nothing more than estimates.



Determine All of Your Likely Expenses



There are several different types of startups. But most startups will have several similar categories of business expenses. It is important that you consider all the initial expenses like the setup and organizational costs. If you are renting a location to startup your business, then consider the cost of the rent, equipments, furniture, and office supplies. Also the technology needs, including Web site development and maintenance, business software, computers, employee wages and benefits.
