The Business Plan Shop offers advanced financial forecasting capabilities
Xero offers a simple one-year budgeting tool and a short-term cash flow forecasting tool - while both are helpful, they don't allow you to project your business' performance over the medium term or model complex financial elements.
To effectively plan business' growth and anticipate financing requirements you need to use a longer time frame. The Business Plan Shop let's you create complete 3-ways forecasts spanning up to 5 years. Each forecast includes a P&L, balance sheet and cash flow statement with monthly & yearly details.
You can use historical accounting data from Xero as a starting point to create your forecast instead of starting from scratch.
Our forecasting tool goes further than the simple budgeting tool included in Xero, enabling you to accurately model each element according to the specificities of your business whether you have complex payment terms with your client or suppliers, loans with specific repayment schedules, variable costs using a variety of drivers, and much more!
