Corporate planning serves the management, the shareholders and the capital providers as well as, if applicable, the advisory board or supervisory board as an essential basis for the responsible performance of their mostly statutory duties.
Ongoing analyses of the deviation of actual development from the outlined planned development form the basis for effective and efficient corporate management. If these are updated to forecasts, important requirements for early warning systems in risk management can be met with legal certainty.
Corporate planning is also the basis for your business decisions. Model calculations show you the effects of changes, investments, etc. in different scenarios. Sensitivity analyses can also provide information on the potential risk and opportunity content of your possible alternative actions and decisions. This makes corporate planning an important tool for obtaining an assessment of future developments and their predictability in every phase of the business.
Integrated corporate planning is the essential basis for banks and financiers of medium-sized companies, regardless of their size, when making decisions about financing your company. In critical business situations, integrated planning is mandatory to meet legal requirements.
We model, create and implement integrated corporate planning for your company and for your group of companies that is tailored to your requirements. In doing so, we also take into account the requirements for software tools to be used for efficient implementation.
The integrated corporate planning is based on the detailed plans of the company concerning turnover, personnel, production, investment, financing, etc.. These detailed plans are combined to form a budgeted income statement, a budgeted balance sheet and a budgeted cash flow statement. In the case of groups of companies, a presentation is made at group level by means of consolidation.
This approach allows a purpose-oriented variance of the planning depth. In this way, all planning parameters can be taken into account with the respective planning assumptions.
The combined consideration of asset, financial and earnings effects ensures a coherent overall picture of your planning considerations in terms of content and calculation. Developments in assets, equity and liabilities become just as clearly visible as expenses, income and the generation of profit. The additional plan cash flow statement shows the development of freely available liquidity.
Integrated corporate planning is designed to reflect not only the structure of the accounting system but also the structure of cost and activity accounting. This enables a cyclical target/actual comparison with the data from accounting and from cost and performance accounting for controlling.
