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.
Setting up a budget can be as simple as drawing out a budget worksheet with columns allocated to start-up costs (if you are launching a business) and monthly operating expenses. Depending on your type of business, expenses include items like business equipment, office supplies, inventory, shipping costs, furniture, licenses and permits, leases, utility costs, insurance, legal and accounting fees, salaries, travel and transportation costs, entertainment, benefits and advertising and marketing costs.
Dave breaks out his trusty cash flow worksheet project template, which is already set up for civil engineering projects. This is his starting point which hell tweak for this project. First, he uses the quantities and types of steel, cable, cement, and other materials estimated by the engineers and multiplies those by current forward commodity prices in the market to get the approximate cost. He looks into the companys past projects to estimate a potential range of variation for the raw materials, since input prices can move substantially between proposal and building stages.
For entrepreneurs just starting out, it can be difficult to know what monthly expenses will be. To get a general idea,you can view sample business plans online for your field of business. Business plans will include a start-up and projected operating budget, and there are some posted at the Palo Alto Software website.
