    What are business financial projections and forecasts?

    When planning the future growth of your business, it is important to prepare budgets and forecasts in order to understand your future profitability and to ensure that you are prepared for any cash flow issues or cyclical variations. 

    Being aware of your financial requirements will enable you to take the necessary steps to safeguard against potential difficulties that may lie ahead. Reviewing your company’s current performance against forecasts can also enable you to capitalise on opportunities and trends. 

    It is important to distinguish between financial planning and financial forecasts. While financial forecasts utilise data to produce an intelligent estimate of future income and expenditure, financial plans detail the strategy that a business will apply to its finances and how it will harness its earnings. 

    Why do I need business financial projections and forecasts?

    Financial projections and forecasts bring the dual benefit of helping businesses to identify investment opportunities and identifying threats. 

    Well-kept financial records and regularly updated forecasts allow business owners and directors to assess the areas where cash flow is likely to increase, signaling opportunities for strategic investment and expansion. 

    Equally, a shortfall in cash can catch any business off guard, so it is important to take steps to foresee financial threats before they become a problem. 

    The information produced by financial projections and forecasts is often invaluable for when communicating with lenders and investors at times when new or additional borrowing facilities are required.
