CFO Model (DEMO)

Forecast model w/ integrated financials, cash budget, Equity, Capitalization, CapEx, OpEx, Payroll, and analytics tabs

NOTE: An UNLOCKED version of this model can be purchased at:

● 60-mo integrated financials
● Cash Budget w/ 3 AR/AP tranches
● Analysis tab: ratios, DCF, stress test

The model keeps track of COGS, Inventory, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and several other accounts that are driven by the sales (and payment) terms of the business.

Without a Cash Budget, managers are compelled to enter mere guesses (usually a straight % of Sales) numerous Balance Sheet line-items would comprise. With a Cash Budget, the absolute numbers are calculated and fed through the financial statements, saving the user time and potential forecast risk.

The more granular the accounting for cash, the lower the forecast risk. This model eliminates it for certain line-items that often skew forecasts too much.

As with all models at ExcelModels, this workbook contains separate tabs containing integrated financial statements: Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow Statement. All checks and balances are in-place, highlighting areas (such as a negative cash balance) where the user needs to adjust assumptions elsewhere.

This template contains clearly-labeled input cells. All other cells are locked for calculation, labeling, or other use. This focuses the user on the Key Assumptions they have control over, and prompts an accurate forecast.
