Take the Mystery Out of Financial Statements
More often than not, business owners try and simplify their financial statements into one singular profit and loss, or P&L, report. They rely on this report to track incoming revenue and paid expenses. However, P&L reports can be rather limited, and you’re missing much of the information you need to make smart financial decisions when they’re used on their own.
Your CFO Solutions can help you develop useful tools like accrual basis P&L reports that allow you to track invoiced sales and the accrued but unpaid bills for expenses. These reports will help you determine how your business is spending its time and realizing profits. By utilizing the right accrual P&L report, you’ll be able to track trends in your business’s profitability.
When paired with your cash flow reports, accrual P&L reports can help you monitor and maintain the growth of your business. Our financial consultants are happy to set these up for you.
Craft Useful Budgets
Everyone recognizes the value of a budget, but few are quick to plan or even implement them. As a result, businesses spend money without realizing where it’s going. A useful company budget can help you plan your next business move, can aid in cash management, and provide comparisons to the actual results you achieve.
Every budget should start with a projection of expenses. This should include fixed expenses like your utilities, insurance, or certification fees. It should also track variable costs, or those that change in response to revenue. You should also consider how long it takes to get paid for each sale. Finally, take your expenditures for capital goods like equipment into account.
With your budget in place, you can verify its accuracy by comparing it to the actual facts of your business. Your budget should be constantly reassessed and re-evaluated. It should account for changes in sales, larger business trends, and your forecasts. If you’re struggling to develop an accurate, and crucially, useful budget, connect with our financial consultants now!
