Axis Capital Business Funding Group in Jakarta Review - Jakarta, Indonesia - You have finally been granted a loan for your dream business. Having that ample amount of money gives you a lot of ideas and makes you plan exciting concepts. The opportunities are limitless. The only problem is you don’t know where to start. You may deem yourself capable and expert when it comes to the nature of your business, the ins and outs in the market and what niche and audience to target but bookkeeping is something you are not trained for. The good thing is, you have already been able to estimate the cost and inclusions, the liabilities and possible profits. The only issue is to maintain the cash flow and regulate it, be able to pay off loans and still get a good ROI.

According to Axis Capital Business Funding, a credit loan source for small business owners in America, most businesses suffer bankruptcy because of improper handling of budget. As there are more pressure for start-ups and small companies, management administration is a big factor in determining the success of the business. Monthly statements come afterwards that is why some business owners have no idea that they have already spent more than what the budget provided for.

With the business up and running, you may already have the idea on the trend in your profit by reviewing the consistent operational system. For start-ups, the assumptions can be based on the trends through geographical location, average competition costs and revenues and ratio of the market to the local businesses.

Planning the budget ahead of its execution is to prevent over spending. Here are some of things you can do:

  1. Learn about the Industry standards Although businesses are different in nature, they are still bound by some similarities. Do some research on local industries on similar fields. Ask around for the average revenue expected and their allocations on cost groupings. The information may give you a general idea and will be able to keep you up with expenses.

  2. Create a spreadsheet Spreadsheets are oftentimes considered tedious. With the operation continuously running everyday, updating it can also be tiresome. Yet, having a spreadsheet for the expenditures and revenues can help you monitor the finances.

  3. Consider Cost Cutting Some factors which contribute to over budgeting is allocating on projects when you shouldn’t be. Know what is not needed and cut it out. While doing this, expect to hear complaints and experience frustrations and prepare yourself for it.
