Creating a business plan from scratch in Brixx (Video)

Welcome back to this training series. In this video, I’m going to show you how to go about building a plan from scratch. I’ll look closer at structuring your plan and how to enter your numbers. But before we start I recommend pausing this video, grabbing a hot beverage of your choice and settling down comfortably as this video is a bit longer than the last one!

The Business Show – aftermath & subscription discount

The Business Show is over, it’s a new week and we have just about recovered from a couple of intense days at the show last week. Around 16,000 people visited the show on the Wednesday and a similar amount on Thursday. Our bright orange stand was busy from when the doors opened right to the final minutes. We were hard to miss!

We are delighted to announce that the Brixx team will have a stand at the London business show 2017. It’s happening in the Excel centre on the 17th and 18th May. We’ll be there to demo our financial planning software, show off what we have in the pipeline and generally talk all things related to starting up a business with everyone who is going.

How to forecast your startup or business’s cash flow

How to forecast your startup or business’s cash flow

The cash flow statement is one of the more common reports used by accountants. It is a measure of all the incoming and outgoing cash activity of the business and is usually estimated at a monthly level. You may think that all that matters is your profit margin but cash flow is critical.

The key difference between a cash flow forecast and another report like the income statement is that it’s all about timing. When cash is parted with or received is vitally important. It will not take into account future sales received on credit. It’s a true reflection of your bank accounts inflows and outflows. Not what might be, but what is.

We have been quietly working away on completely revamping the Brixx dashboard for a while now. We think it’s incredibly important to be able to visualise the future of your business. We’re trying very hard to make this simple and beautiful.

At the same time, we want to deliver something powerful that is really useful for analysing your cash flow forecasts, understanding your future costs and generally being aware of every part of your business.

Brixx planning software is trusted by hundreds of UK housing associations and now hundreds more startups and small businesses.
