Preparation of Budget and cash flow statements Budgets can take many forms and serve many functions, providing the basis for detailed sales targets, staffing plans, inventory production, cash investment/borrowing, capital expenditures (for plant assets, etc.). The Basic concept of a budget is estimating all future cash receipts and cash expenditures that will take place during the time period. The most important estimate that I will make is an estimate of sales. Once this is decided, the rest of the cash budget can fall into place. Expecting an increase in sales of, for example, 10 percent, is desired and expected, various other accounts must be adjusted in the budget. Raw materials, inventory and the costs of goods sold must be revised to reflect the increase in sales. In addition, I have to consider any additions need to be made to selling or general and administrative expenses, or can the increased sales be handled by current manpower capacity? Also, how will the increase in sales affect payroll and overtime expenditures? Rather than increasing every expense item by 10 percent, serious consideration will be given to certain economies of scale that might develop. For instance, a supplier offers a discount if you increase the quantities in which you buy a certain item or, perhaps, the increase in sales can be easily accommodated by the current sales force; all of these types of considerations must be taken into account before I start budgeting. Each type of expense (as shown on in the income statement) must be evaluated for its potential to increase or decrease. My estimates should be based on the experience running the business and on the goals for the business over the time frame for which the budget is being created. At a minimum, the following categories of expected cash receipts and expected cash payments should be considered: Cash balance, Expected cash receipts, Cash sales, Collections of accounts receivable, other income, Expected cash expenses, Raw material (inventory), Payroll, Other direct expenses Advertising, Selling expenses, Administrative expense, Plant and equipment expenditures, Other payments Verification of Monthly reconciliation for Suppliers A/c. & Customers A/c.
