What can a professionally tailored and managed budget do for your business?

The answer is – everything!

We are all aware of the importance of strategic and realistic financial planning when you start a business. Business plans can have visions and goals, but the part that will make or break a business is the financial strategy required to realise that vision and achieve those goals.

Budgets are the foundation of any and all financial strategy.

They can make the difference between success and failure. They will help you realise your financial goals and grow your business. Correctly drafted and – with regular adjustments as part of strategy, budgets can do more than help you manage your money. Strategic budgeting with reporting, through Xero, will help you to:

  • manage your cash flow better and identify ways to raise cash for when you need it
  • make wise investment choices
  • make decisions with certainty
  • allocate resources efficiently
  • identify opportunities to grow your business
  • identify potential economic, operational and market-related threats – and be ready for them.
  • monitor HR and operational performance and increase efficiency
  • reduce costs and increase profits

Budgets inform decision-making. They allow you to plan and act with confidence. They provide guidance and certainty to operational and financial strategies.

Budgets underpin optimal business growth and build business resilience.

Budgets help you identify problems before they occur – such as raising funding for cash shortfall or cash flow difficulties

Let the team at TAT help you achieve your business goals with one of tiered budgeting packages.

From our DIY and Guidance Budget Packages for the small to medium-size enterprise business owner, who has their hands on the controls, through to our Quarterly Coaching and Virtual CFO Packages for complex financial operations and financial strategising.

Your business budget is a financial plan for the future year ahead of you. It is the sum of money allocated and the summary of intended expenditures along with proposals for how to meet them. Companies, governments and families use budgets for strategic planning of activities or events in measurable terms. The value of a business budget is one of the most important tools your business can use.
