Budgeting Services

A good budget is a necessity in a good business plan. It is one of the best business tools we have, allowing us to set financial targets and measure our performance.

In addition to goal setting value, budgets will often improve your chances of acquiring funding. Financers often require budgets as a prerequisite for funding approval.

The techniques we utilize in the formation of financial projections will allow you to consider future scenarios and give you goals to strive for in your business. There are many types of budgets and we can help you design the right budget for your needs and requirements.

Let us show you how a budget is able to provide feedback to allow you to prepare for the future of your business.




Master Budget

A master budget is a comprehensive projection of how management expects to conduct all aspects of business over the budget period, usually a fiscal year. The master budget summarizes projected activity by way of a cash budget, budgeted income statement and budgeted balance sheet. Most master budgets include interrelated budgets from the various departments. Managers typically use these subset budgets to plan and set performance objectives. Master budgets are generally used in larger businesses to keep many managers on the same page.

Operational Budgets

The operational budget covers revenues and expenses surrounding the day-to-day core business of a company. Revenues represent sales of products and services; expenses define the costs of goods sold as well as overhead and administrative costs directly related to producing goods and services. While budgeted annually, operating budgets are usually broken down into smaller reporting periods, such as weekly or monthly. Managers compare ongoing results to budget throughout the year, planning and adjusting for variations in revenue.

Cash Flow Budget

A cash flow budget examines the inflows and outflows of cash in a business on a day-to-day basis. It predicts a company's ability to take in more money than it pays out. Managers monitor cash flow budgets to pinpoint shortfalls between expenses and sales -- times when financing may be needed to cover overheads. Cash flow budgets also suggest production cycles and inventory levels so that a company's resources are available for activity, not sitting idle on warehouse shelves.

Financial Budget

A financial budget outlines how a business receives and spends money on a corporate scale, including revenues from core business plus income and costs from capital expenditures. Managing assets such as property, buildings, investments and major equipment may have a significant effect on the financial health of a company, particularly through the peaks and troughs of daily business. Executive managers use financial budgets to leverage financing and value the company for mergers and public offerings of stock.

Static Budget

A static budget contains elements where expenditures remain unchanged with variations to sales levels. Overhead costs represent one type of static budget, but these budgets aren't confined to traditional overhead expenses. Some departments may have a fixed amount of money set in budget to spend, and it is up to managers to make sure such amounts are spent without going over-budget. This condition occurs routinely in public and nonprofit sectors, where organizations or departments are funded largely by grants.



Choosing the right business structure from the very start is critical. It will determine how much tax you pay now, when you sell and what you can do with your profits. You want an expert who can help you make the best decisions, from the very start.
