Financial Budgeting

In general usage, a financial plan is a comprehensive evaluation of an individual or business current and future financial state by using currently known variables to predict future cash flows, asset values and withdrawal plans.

Budgeting for a business is a process. A business can't open its doors each day without having some idea of what to expect. And it can't close its doors at the end of the day not knowing what happened. A business should plan and be prepared for its future, and should control its actual performance to reach its financial goals. The only question is how. Budgeting is one answer. A business budget is an integrated plan of action - not simply a few trend lines on a financial chart. The four phases of a budget cycle for small businesses are : Preparation, Approval, Execution and Evaluation. A budget makes sure that all the money is being spent in the right direction and financial goals are attained.
