What is a budget? What is budgeting?


Budget (from French bougette, purse)

It is a list of all planned expenses & revenues

A BUDGET is an organizational plan stated in monetary terms.

Definitions The process of making the list is BUDGETING

Purpose of Budgeting
Purpose of budgeting is to: Provide a forecast of revenues and expenditures (i.e. a model of how a business might perform financially speaking if certain strategies, events and plans are carried out)

It is a MODEL!

To assess performance by comparing actual operating results against the forecast / budget. (Model vs. Actual)

It is a METRIC!

Simply put:
A budget is a practical means of telling the money where to go, rather than simply wondering where it went.

Telling the money where to go And knowing where it went

Surely, there are many who wonder where the money went.

Because they were spending without a plan in mind. Without a budget!

Other uses
For a loan or other financing for business purposes
(One is expected to produce a business plan, which includes information concerning projected income and expenses.)

No business should ever proceed without planning, and a

Types of Budgets
An operating budget A capital budget A cash budget

The operating budget

An operating budget consists of three parts:
The statistical budget The revenue budget The expense budget

The statistical budget

The statistical budget, which is the best available projection of business activity for the coming year (units or pieces to be produced, contracts to be secured, estimated business activity, etc.).

Sales volume Production volume Inventory volume Headcount

The revenue budget

The revenue budget, which is a projection of estimated income for the coming year.

Gross VAT Net Withholding taxes

Marketing expenses Gross profit Levels:

Division Product Location Profit center

Commissions Incentives/promo Allowances

Often, good indicators of future revenues are:

past sales
(adjusted for whatever is known about the coming period, such as changes in business activity and expected price increases and the like).

The expense budget

The expense budget, which consists of all anticipated costs of operating the business and conducting the projected level of business.

Salaries & wages Payroll taxes Insurance Training & seminars Publications Memberships Fringe benefits
Medical Others

Travel Supplies Taxes & licenses Rent Miscellaneous/Others Levels:

Division Department Cost center

Depreciation Amortization


Most accurate indicators of future costs are:

past costs
(adjusted for whatever is known about the coming period, such as changes in business activity and expected price increases and the like).

A breakdown of the expenses charged to a department or activity, such as salaries, benefits, supplies, travel, postage and such, is essential.

One must keep track of how much money is going into each category of expense, as well as how much one is spending in total.

The capital budget A capital budget accounts for potential expenditures for major fixed equipment
(for example, a building, a boiler, a new roof, etc.) and major movable equipment (copy machines, computers, etc.).

The cash budget

A cash budget is usually prepared last in the budgeting process and consists of estimates of the business' cash needs for the year, as compared with projections of the cash receipts for the year.

Operating cash receipts Receivables Loans Equity infusion

Operating cash payments Payables Capital expenditures Periodic amortization

Corporate budget
The budget of a company is compiled annually. A finished budget usually requires considerable effort and can be seen as a financial plan for the new financial year.

The Finance department compiles the company's budget, but today

modern software allows hundreds or even thousands of people in the various departments (operations, human resources, IT etc) to contribute to the final budget.

Budgeting Principles
(Some only)

A budget cannot be adequately prepared during the final week or two before the new budget period begins.

You should collect information used in preparing the budget, especially information concerning expenses, several months ahead of time.

Some principles and practical rules of budgeting:

Expenses must always be charged to the department or activity incurring the expenditures.

Every item of expense in the business must be under someone's direct control.

Managers responsible for complying with an expense budget must participate in preparing the budget.

No one should be held responsible for expenditures over which he or she has no control.

Unused funds budgeted for expenses may not be carried over from one year's budget to the next.

Unused capital-budget funds may not be transferred into operating expenses or vice versa.

All individual expenditures must be approved by the appropriate levels of responsibility.

A budget narrative is useful in defining the costs included in a budget. It can also be used to explain variances.

A budget narrative often is used to explain line items in the budget.

It can be structured in one of two ways. You can create "Notes to the Budget" with footnote-style numbers or letters on the line items in the budget keyed to numbered or lettered explanations.
