Integrated Budgeting for Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Automated projection of cash using inputs and assumptions with IBM Planning Analytics

Integrated Financial Budgeting solution using an interconnected set of inputs and assumptions that are driven by the end user. Every financial assumption automatically translates to the P&L and balance sheet and shows the resulting impact on cash. An actual model will support much more depth with a much larger variety of assumptions, some of the sample transactions shown here are the following:

  • Modeling of revenue and how that automatically translates into Accounts Receivable
  • Relationship between account receivable and cash based on user-driven assumptions for cash collection
  • Budgeting for individual line items such as Insurance Prepayments and the related impact of amortizing the balance into expenses over time
  • Purchases of individual assets with impact on cash as well as P&L and retained earnings based on user driven payment and depreciation assumptions
  • A Balance Sheet walk-forward to explain the changes in balances month-over-month by showing additions and reductions in balances by account line item
