Chapter 9 The Use of Budgets in Planning and Decision Making
Topics to be Discussed Introduction The Budget Development Process Budgets for Planning, Operating and Control Advantages of Budgeting
Introduction Budgets are plans dealing with the acquisition and use of resources over a specified time period.
Introduction Budgets can be in terms of: Monetary or financial Time Acquisition and use of thousands of materials Manufacturing of hundreds of products Attendance at a baseball game
Introduction Pause and Reflect Have you ever prepared a budget? Was it a monetary or non- monetary budget? How did you use it?
The Budget Development Process Traditionally, budgeting is a bottom-up process dependent on departmental managers to provide detailed plans for the upcoming month, quarter or year.
The Budget Development Process Zero-Based Budgets require managers to build budgets from the ground up each year rather than just add a percentage increase to last years numbers. Why shouldnt I just use 10% more than last year for everything?
The Budget Development Process Key Concept Budgets must start with a top-down strategic plan that guides and integrates the whole company and its individual budgets.
The Budget Development Process Key Concept Budgeting is a management task, not a bookkeeping task.
The Budget Development Process Budgeting is an integral part of the planning, operating, and control activities of managers. Planning: developing objectives and goals Control: Insuring that objectives and goals are met, comparing actual to budget BUDGETING Operating Day-to-Day management decisions
The Budget Development Process Key Concept Budgets are used throughout the planning, operating, and controlling activities of managers.
The Budget Development Process The operating cycle focuses on cash, thus budgeting for cash needs is crucial. Cash on hand Collection of cash from customers Disbursement of cash for manufacturing costs or purchases of inventory Sale of Product
Advantages of Budgeting The budgeting process forces communication throughout the organization. The budgeting process forces managements to focus of the future and not be distracted by daily crisis in the organization.
Advantages of Budgeting The budgeting process can help management identify and deal with potential bottlenecks or constraints before they become major problems. The budgeting process can increase the coordination of organizational activities and help facilitate goal congruence. The budgeting process can define specific goals and objectives that can become benchmarks, or standards of performance for evaluating future performance.
More Topics to Discuss Budgeting for Sales Operating Budgets-An Example Budgeting for a Traditional Manufacturing Company with Inventory Manufacturing Overhead Budget Cash Budgets
Budgeting for Sales In large companies, preparation of the sales forecast is usually accomplished by the marketing department and requires significant effort in the area of market research to arrive at an accurate forecast of expected sales. In smaller companies, the sales forecast may be made by an individual or small group of managers.
Budgeting for Sales: Some Ways to Forecast Sales Anticipated marketing or advertising plans The impact of new products or changes in product mix on the entire product line Other factors such as political and legal events and weather changes.
Budgeting for Sales Pause and Reflect What unique factors might a CPA firm specializing in tax planning and the preparation of tax return consider in forecasting sales?
Budgeting for Sales Key Concept Budgets are future oriented and make extensive use of estimates and forecasts.
Operating Budgets: An Example Produces bottled orange juice from fruit concentrate Only ingredients are water and juice concentrate Juice is blended, pasteurized and bottled Process is heavily automated Each machine is run by one employee and can process 10 bottles of juice per minute or 600 bottles per hour
Inventory Policy 10% of next months expected sales in ending inventory of finished goods 20% of next months expected production of bottles in ending inventory of materials.
Operating Budgets: An Example Pause and Reflect What kind of costing system is Tinas likely to use?

Cash Budgets Many managers consider managing the cash flow to be the single most important consideration in running a successful business.
Cash Budgets All of the sales of Tinas are on account. Collections are estimated as follows: 50% in the month of the sale 35% in the month following the sale 15% in the second month following the sale
Cash Budgets Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Sales $200,000 $250,000 $262,500 $341,250 $472,500 Cash Receipts Nov sales 50% 35% 15% Dec sales 50% 35% 15% Jan sales 50% 35% 15% Feb sales 50% 35% March sales50% Cash Receipts for 1st Qtr.
Cash Budgets Cash Disbursement Budget- Operating Activities Cash Disbursements include: Material Purchases for Concentrate Material Purchases for Bottles Direct Labor Manufacturing Overhead Selling and Administrative Costs
Cash Budgets Pause and Reflect Can you trace each of the amounts in the cash disbursements budget back to the original budget in which it appears?
Cash Budgets Summary Cash Budget, continued Cash flows form financing activities Payment of dividends Interest on long-term debt Borrowing from line of credit Repayments of line of credit Final cash balance
More Budget Topics Budgeted Financial Statements Budgets for a Manufacturing Company in a JIT Environment Budgets for Merchandising Companies and Service Companies Life Cycle Costs, the Value Chain and Budgeting
More Budget Topics Using the budgets, management prepares pro-forma (budgeted) financial statements. They are used for internal planning purposes and to provide information to external users, such as a bank when requesting a loan. What do I do with all of these budgets?
Budgeted Financial Statements Pro-forma Statements include: Cost of Goods Manufactured Income Statement Balance Sheet
Budgeted Financial Statements If the budget is prepared as a template using spreadsheet software, changes in assumptions can be reflected in the entire budget in a few seconds.
Other Budgeting Topics Life Cycle Costs, the Value Chain, and Budgeting Budgeting in an International Environment Nonmonetary Budgets Static Versus Flexible Budgets ABC and Flexible Budgets
Life Cycle Costs, the Value Chain and Budgeting In making decisions to introduce new products, the forecasted sales over the life of the product must exceed its life cycle costs. Given that a significant % of total costs are incurred before a new product is actually produced and sold, early and accurate budgeting is critically important in making good decisions regarding the introduction of new products.
Budgeting in an International Environment Considerations: Translating foreign currency Predicting inflation rates and prices in unstable economies Predicting sales in countries with different consumer preferences Dealing with different labor laws, social customs, and norms affecting wage rates and the productivity of workers
Nonmonetary Budgets Time Budgets: to plan the number of hours expected to be incurred in each engagement (CPA firm and law offices) Customer Satisfaction Measures: includes the number of retuned or defective items, the number of customer complaints, time waiting to be served
Static vs Flexible Budgets Static budgets are set at the beginning of the period and remain constant throughout the budget period. What if my sales are not what I projected? I know. Ill use flexible budgets. Flexible budgets take differences in cost and revenue due to volume differences out of the analysis by budgeting for labor (and other costs) based on the actual number of units produced.
Static vs Flexible Budgets Key Concept Flexible budgets are based on the actual number of units produced rather than the budgeted units of production.
Static vs Flexible Budgets Static Budget Actual Projected production (bottles) 257,000 250,000 Projected direct labor costs $6,438 $6,300 Difference $138 favorable Flexible Budget Actual Projected production (bottles) 250,000 250,000 Projected direct labor costs $6,250 $6,300 Difference $50 unfavorable
ABC and Flexible Budgets Tinas would budget costs for moving materials based on the budgeted cost per move and the actual number of moves made during the month. Tinas would compute the per-unit budget amounts for other batch-level and product-level costs and include those in the flexible budget along with the regular variable costs and fixed costs.
End of Chapter 9 The budgeting process is worth the effort.
