It can be extremely difficult to assemble all of the information needed for a creditable corporate budget in a timely manner, and then continue to refer back to it throughout the budget period. Many companies become so frustrated with the process that they implement an oppressive, top-down system of adherence to the budget or - at the other extreme - give up budgeting altogether.
Budgeting: The Comprehensive Guide addresses all aspects of the budgeting conundrum: how to create a budget, whether there are variations on the concept that may work better, and how to operate without any budget at all. This course also covers capital budgeting, flexible budgeting, zero-base budgeting, and all of the procedures, controls, and reports needed for a functioning budget system. With detailed descriptions of budgeting systems, reports, and controls, this course will benefit both beginning and experienced accountants alike.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the reasons both for and against the use of budgets.
- Recognize how the various components of the budget are assembled to create a complete budget package.
- Identify how to construct different types of budgets.
- Recognize how to construct and follow up on other types of budgets.
- Specify how to set up and operate a zero-base budgeting system.
- Recall other unique budgeting issues.
