It is of prime importance to incorporate monthly management tools based on both the projected and actual data of your company when monitoring your business.
These tools should collect in a simple, legible and concise way, the strategic data you need in order to make the right decisions with total peace of mind.
The deployment of these tools means you can anticipate and understand your results as well as optimise your taxes and cash flow.
Provisional budget or provisional income statement
A provisional budget or income statement is an essential tool to allow managers to assess the company performance upstream. Moreover, it is also one of the tools for setting objectives in writing and planning the resources necessary for their achievement.
The provisional budget includes:
- Monthly turnover (income and activities)
- The margins per product or activity (purchase price, subcontracting etc.)
- Staff costs
- Fixed charges (rents, fees, taxes, etc.
- The company’s break-even point
- The monthly results and aggregate results from the start of the financial year
Eliance will help you prepare your budget, so that you can formalise your strategy and define unifying objectives for your team. With total peace of mind and from the start of the financial year, you can anticipate the results of your business.
Cash flow budget
One of the main reasons why companies file for insolvency is the lack of cash flow, even if the order book looks promising.
It is essential for managers to know on a day-to-day basis about the cash situation and to be informed of all expected cash receipts and expenditures.
The cash flow budget allows anticipating any financing requirements of the enterprise:
- bank overdrafts
- bank credit (loans)
- factoring of receivables
- financing of stocks
- increased cash needs (raising funds or from equity)
In this way:
- you will agree a limit on your overdraft with your bank manager
- you can anticipate any overdraft for your account, always difficult and tricky to negotiate in an emergency
- you can select the best investments for your company
Eliance will help you prepare a specific cash flow budget, either with your accounts department or on a standalone basis, so that you are always in control of your cash situation.
