GENERAL LEDGER REPORTS
BUDGET PERFORMANCE REPORT
  
If budgets are entered correctly in the Edit - Budgets menu option, TurboCASH will be able to display the actual expenditure and income against the Budgeted figures, if selected. This will give you an indication of how your business is performing.

This report shows the actual figures you achieved versus the budget figures you aimed to achieve. You can use this report as a valuable tool to see that your income you expected to generate and the actual sales is exceeding your expectations or for example whether your sales team have not met the target for the month. If your expenses are more than your budgeted figures, you may look at the spending pattern or may be to curb some spending. The factors are different to each and every businesses own situation and the variances need to be analysed and to take proactive steps to address the variances.
