Growing your business: forecasting, budgeting and sustainable growth


When forecasting and budgeting are done right they can make your business more profitable.

With over 20 years of experience, Lee Manning, Partner at Raffingers, delves into effective forecasting and budgeting processes, helping you to make better business decisions and ensure you have enough money put aside to pay that dreaded tax bill at the end of the year.

Forecasting, budgeting and financial performance reviews combine to help you spot trends earlier, making the decision making process easier. Every business owner has short term and long term goals, which these processes help make a reality. Through effective planning, it is also possible to create ‘what if’ scenarios, allowing you to see what will and could happen if a few small changes are made.

Business forecasting allows new and emerging businesses to become top of the pack in a short amount of time. With proper planning and guidance from an experienced professional, you’ll be able to make effective decisions in no time. Getting your business on the right track is key in fulfilling your business goals for the next few years.
