Budgeting

Budgeting sets out your financial expectations for the business. While it’s not possible to know exactly what the future holds, budgeting reduces the level of uncertainty and helps you anticipate problems.

Actively using your budgets, and comparing them to the actual outcome, also lets you learn from the past and improve your ability to control the business.
