Creating a small business budget

Small business budgets are empowering. They give you the knowledge and insight to eliminate wasteful spending and get to profitability faster.

When setting a business budget, you need good numbers. Don’t guess at what’s coming in and what’s going out. You could be making assumptions that just aren’t true. Take the time to look into your accounts and dig out the real figures and look forwards. It might sound like hard work but it’s worth it to measure what’s happening in your business.

Setting a budget isn’t complicated but it can still help to involve an expert. Make sure you double-check the numbers and make realistic predictions about business growth, upcoming expenses, and tax exposure. You need to know when the actual numbers deviate from the predicted ones by building it into your regular reports.
