We believe that every business should have a 3 year financial budget to plan where you want to be heading. Redrafting this annually for a budget and reforecasting at least quarterly if there are changes known about as this gives a more realistic future picture.
This gives direction to the board and the entire team as to what the business is trying to achieve so you are all working in sync. We’ll also create, manage and update a rolling 12 month 3 way forecastof profit & loss, cashflow and the balance sheet so you always know what the future financial performance and position of the business looks like, based on what we already know today (committed sales and costs).
This is about bringing the future into the present so you can do something about it and ensure cashflow can be managed alongside the growth.
Having an idea of what is ahead means that you can do something about an issue before it is too late. The cashflow forecast is always on interest as all businesses have months that have large expenditures due to business cycle, VAT and Corporation tax payments, investment, etc…
