Product Description

Corporate accountants around the world have been making the same mistakes, year-in year-out. Why is it that we spend months on an annual planning process that we know is flawed? Why is it we spend many days preparing a monthly report that is informing management well and truly “after the horse has bolted”? Why do we produce a 30+ page finance report for the senior management team? Why do we budget at account code level?

With the economic downturn corporate accountants need to find more time to help their businesses in a more proactive way. This toolkit will enlighten and encourage controllers, CFOs, management and financial accountants to avoid these major mistakes.

This whitepaper is updated at the time of purchase by David Parmenter ensuring that it contains his latest thinking. The whitepaper is printed at the time of purchase to ensure it has David’s latest thinking and air-mailed to the reader. The e-templates are emailed.

The toolkit will cover how to avoid the mistakes which include:

  1. Having over 80 account codes for the P/L
  2. Only forecasting to year-end
  3. Breaking down the annual plan into twelve before the year starts
  4. Giving budget holders an annual entitlement
