Budget Planning

When a crisis occurs and it strikes the organization, an important step is to change and adjust the budget. The cash-flow budget estimates the future revenue and expenses of the business. By developing cash-flow forecasts for several months ahead, it is possible to estimate when an organization will be short of funds and to plan the proper steps to take in advance, such as promoting or changing staff assignments. The cash-flow budget is also the most demanded after the general business budget when seeking funding from another bank or investor.

By implementing a few simple steps, you can reach far-reaching conclusions:

  1. Establishing a time frame: Determining the times when a financial crisis will have the most severe impact on the organization and its cash-flow.
  2. Estimating Sales Units: Estimate the number of clients or sales units that can be expected during the forecast period, and sorted them by the various aspects of revenue.
  3. Estimate sales revenue.
  4.  Estimate the timing of income: Calculate when the revenue from these sales will be paid into the organization’s account, considering deposits, cash payments or credit card payments.
  5. Adding expenses: Identify and add all expected expenses during the forecast period, considering and separating variable and fixed expenses.
  6. Calculate surplus or deficit.

Pricing and Costing

Price is the value of a product or service that is the result of a complex system of calculations, research, and risk-taking ability. Pricing strategy considers sectors, ability to pay, market conditions, competitors’ operations, trade margins, and input costs.
