Real life applications for a cash flow worksheet vary widely, from stock analysis to project finance, even the government! This is a real life case study of a financial analyst using a cash flow worksheet at a civil engineering firm to forecast the profitability of a bridge project. It demonstrates some universal components of such a project, as well as one unique way to estimate long term value.
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.
Next, you need to have a set of goals to work towards. There is no point is starting a budget worksheet unless you have a goal that you are striving to achieve. Without a goal sheet, any extra money you do save from your budget worksheet will have no real purpose and will be far easier to spend. Having a written set of goals helps to keep you on track.
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.
