Planning Your Start-Up Costs

Here at TfL we are home to a powerhouse of small businesses across London. We believe that our success is only driven by the success of the businesses who choose to work with us and we have a vital part to play in helping them thrive.

A key part of that is ensuring our future customers make an informed choice when selecting one of our properties for their business. To assist you in making that choice we have created a start-up costs calculator, that is designed to help you anticipate your initial costs ahead of your exciting partnership with TfL.

A lot of this information will be in the business plan you have created, but this calculator looks to help readvise your decision to bid for our properties.

When inputting costs including shop fit out, utilities, business rates, service charge, professional and legal fees, please use the links provided in the tooltips to obtain accurate figures.

Please be advised, TfL is not responsible for the accuracy of the information on third-party sites. Please also be advised that TfL cannot be held responsible for any figures produced by this calculator – this tool is simply a guide.
