Whether you’re self employed or own a limited company, budgets and forecasts are essential tools in ensuring that your business reaches its potential and provides you with the level of profits you require from the business.
The budget is the figure that you have decided that you want/need to achieve and the forecasts enable you to track whether you’re on target, giving you the chance to change your approach if necessary.
It has been proven time and again that businesses that forecast sales levels and set budgets are much more likely to be successful than those who just wait and see what happens.
