The Management of Funds, Planning and Budgeting
An explanation of the meaning of funds and the internal flow of funds in business leads on to a discussion of the relationship of profitability, sound finance and the flow of funds. The need to plan ahead calls for some system of budgetary control, and the operation of such a system is described in outline. The chapter concludes with an account of the forward-looking finance budget and the backward-looking sources and uses of funds statement, with examples of each.
