Free Budget-To-Acutals (B2A) Template

Budgets are the foundation for thriving businesses and a key tool for understanding performance. It is one of the best financial tools in a company’s toolbox— having this information in hand can help better identify points in a company’s profit and loss statements where it either performed really well or went completely off the rails. Especially as a company's financial situation will fluctuate over time.

Budget-to-actuals can also help businesses plan, manage and forecast an influx of cash from a loan,  grant or series A. Moreover, proper accounting is likely a requirement for grants or investors.

Utilized correctly, a regular budget variance analysis can provide concrete steps to help a company save money, improve efficiencies, and contribute to business growth.
