Establishing a budget for your business is important, whether you are in the start-up phase or you are currently running your company. The biggest reason that businesses fail is that they run out of money. This can mean that they do not have enough revenue coming in, but it can also mean that they are overspending.
Dave is a financial analyst at Extra Smart Partners (ESP), a civil engineering firm in the City of Metropolis. Daves job is to work with the civil engineers and project managers to analyze the income and costs of various government-funded infrastructure projects to support the proposal and bidding process.
In the last step of his cash flow worksheet, Dave sums the expenses and revenues for each year and all 5 scenarios. He charts these out in graphs with a horizontal line for minimum acceptable return. ESP has access to public project funding at a 6% interest rate, to which he adds 3% for additional risk factors, for a 9% discount rate. Finally, he discounts the net returns per year under all scenarios at 9%, and calculates an NPV for each revenue path. This gives him 5 project values at 5 different revenue assumptions based on his variable markup. At least 3 of these NPVs must exceed the companys 12% hurdle rate in his cash flow worksheet for the bid to viable.
When you have a business budget, you will know how much money you are able to spend without digging yourself into a pile of debt. Cutting back on expenses does not necessarily mean that you provide less value to your customers. Rather, you spend wisely instead of wasting dollars on supplies, salaries or fees that do not add income to your bottom line.
