A Quick Budget allows you to budget for each code in your cash book code list in a simple format.
All the bank accounts in your file are treated as one amalgamated bank account. You just need to enter the budgeted amounts into the relevant codes & months.
Quick budget may be useful if:
- You have a reasonably simple enterprise and don’t need detailed information on all your bank accounts
- You do not require a high level of detail in your budget. If you need individual bank account balances, interest calculations, Enterprise based worksheets or a Statement of Position features, you will need to create a full budget.
How Quick Budgets Work
- Balances and interest rates are calculated for a single bank account. You can also combine the balances and cash flows of several accounts.
- The budget can be set for a period of 1 to 5 years. Start months can be altered at any time.
- There is no limit to the number of Quick Budgets that can be kept on file. Although to keep your file at a reasonable size, delete unused budgets.
- You can edit the start months of a 12-month budget temporarily to suit the various types of years i.e.: Tax Year or Production Year.
- The Year Totals of all codes can be displayed and printed up to a 5-year plan on one page.
- Interest can be calculated on both Receipts and Payments.
- You can import data from the Cashbook
- Each cell in a Quick Budget has a worksheet available, allowing up to 10 lines of data.
