Creating your Organisational Budgets

A budget is a summary of projected costs and revenue for an organisation over a time period, usually your financial year.  “Financial year” is the period you use to calculate your budget and also determines when you file returns with IRD, when books are closed and your financial statements are audited or reviewed.

There are a range of reasons it is important to prepare an annual budget and a number of areas that need to be considered as part of the process.  These include:

·       Defining your expenses

·       Clarifying income

·       Ensuring you are being realistic

·       Creating spreadsheets

·       Gaining board approval

·       Monitoring, adjusting and amending your budget as the year progresses.
