Financial models in Excel


Financial modelling is one of the crucial skills of Financial Analysts and Finance Controllers. We make it easier with the right analytical frameworks, templates and automation.
We are going to partner with you to understand the complexity of your business operations you would like to reflect in your model.
It often involves collating data from various sources and gathering requirements from representatives of different company functions. Then we leverage our financial and technical expertise to create model or models with the right level of granularity. We will facilitate different scenarios if hat's the right way to go and lay out all the assumptions related to uncertainty. You will then have a robust model with complete documentation that you can use for many years in the future and customise to a reasonable degree.




Budgeting spreadsheet systems


Budgeting can be very time consuming and require input from various stakeholders. It often places a disproportional burden on the Finance Director or Financial Controller.
We help not only with the spreadsheet development and design, but we also facilitate collaboration between the contributors.
Usually, we evaluate different data sources and workbooks that our clients use for storing and generating them. We unify the methodology of budget creation for various departments to assure that the level of granularity and the period breakdown allows consolidating data. We simplify and often merge the existing data flows with the focus on correctness and shortening the submission cycles. Such a carefully crafted process with an appropriate spreadsheet development truly improve the collaboration and make the communication of the Finance with the company owners or board of directors very clear. Especially that every step of the process is optimised to support work and use by the involved stakeholder, the owner of the financial planning process will see all the connections between monthly forecasts and budgeting consolidation, while the CEO will be pleased to see a high-level report that allows seeing the makeup of specific accounts and revenue or expense positions only when required.




Operational, quarterly & multi-year forecasting worksheets


Forecasting revenues, sales volumes and different cost and expense categories is a significant role of Financial Planning Managers and Finance controllers. It affects the entire company and is very vulnerable to changes that produce discrepancies.
We develop solutions that connect and integrate your forecasting processes and make them lean.
We facilitate the inclusion of scenario and event-driven cases to help you fully reflect the operational capacity of your business and plan accordingly. We are experienced in creating dynamic systems that accommodate complex structures of your business where seasonal spikes of demand influence your demand for inputs and workforce. We focus on creating systems that reflect your business environment and allow you to keep control after handing you over the spreadsheets and their documentation.
