How Accurate Budgeting is the Key to Bottom Line Performance

If you make an operational decision based on a budget with a line item miscalculation or underestimated cost assumption, you’re gambling on performance. As fun as it is to roll the dice, that’s not something you want to do with net profit.

How Accurate Budgeting is the Key to Bottom Line Performance

Practical and strategic decision-making hinge on having access to reliable and timely information. You need to trust that the figures reported are realistic and based on performance. 

Accurate budgets allow management to make informed business investments that grow the business. With deep insight into your spending and cash flow, they play an even more critical role when economies contract and the businesses performance suffers.

As the baseline for your company’s performance, budgeting is a complex process with layers of contributors, iterations and approvals. It involves every department within an organisation, gathering revenue estimations, anticipated production material and projected expenses to formulate a blueprint for your performance in the coming year. This workflow, where different components are managed by multiple stakeholders but controlled by the budget owner, can be challenging to maintain.

Most problems with budgeting accuracy arise because of the lack of controls in place throughout the budgeting workflow. From how a budget gets created to what tools are used, there are many steps in the process where discrepancies and errors can quickly occur. Here are three areas where budget accuracy is typically questioned:

The bottom line is that you need to be able to trust your data and make decisions based on facts, not fiction. The best way to do this is by adopting a budgeting tool built to manage the budgeting workflow while providing the flexibility and accountability your team needs to deliver an accurate budget for the year.
