Why is the budget important?

As a self-employed person and entrepreneur, you have removed your safety net in the form of fixed income. The financial aspect will be more on your mind than it did when you have a secure income. To eliminate some of there worries, you need to have a complete overview of your finances. Setting a budget is about balancing coasts and revenue so you always have the money to pay expenses.

Maintain the financial overview

The financial overview must not be underestimated. If you need to take out a bank loan or have investors in connection with your company, a financial overview must be presented, both for the current year and future financial years. If you do not have the experience or the experience to do it yourself, we recommend that you contact our partners in the field.

The overview can be found not only by looking at your business account, but by knowing your existing and future income and costs.

  • Make sure you have a business account, so you do not confuse your personal and business finances.
