Benefits of a Business Budget

What are the benefits of having a business budget?  Having a budget allows you to:

  • Forces you to outline your set goals and objectives.  By outlining specific costs you know what you need to do specifically in each area to achieve these criteria.
  • Review goals, discuss a strategy, set priorities, and plan realistic amounts.  Variable expenses can quickly get out of hand without a budget.  Allocations may need to be changed and a budget gives you this information. 
  • Plan expenses to determine how much revenue you will need to meet expenses and generate profit. 
  • Creates opportunity to plan ahead for shortfalls, slowdowns, and busy seasons.
  • Provides information needed to complete loan and financing options.
  • A quick glance at where you are with a monthly & annual picture of income and expenses.  This enables you to monitor cash flow.
  • Helps to pinpoint areas of success as well as areas that need tweaking. The ability to head off issues and plan for profit.
  • Opportunity to re-evaluate your business plan and reflect on how you will achieve it.
