Operating Budget Template

A pre-made 12-month budget template for you to fill in so that you can predict a detailed projection of all costs

An operating budget is a detailed projection of all predicted incomes and costs based on predicted sales revenues during a given time period. The budget commonly consists of sub budgets, including the sales budget, which is the most important and which is prepared first. An operating budget is used for short-term projects, therefore capital expenditures are excluded as they as are long-term costs.

This excel template has five sections (turnover, variable costs, regular costs, interest and depreciation) and has sub-sections within them to help you to be as detailed as possible.
