franchiseIQ has extensive budgeting capability to allow actual results to be measured against your budget.

Budgets are held throughout the system in the same structure as the actual data so that comparisons and variances can be easily produced.

Use Excel to Populate Your Budgets and Import Them

You can extract an Excel file directly from the system pre-populated with your listing of GL Accounts (and departments) along with existing budget or actual values.

You can then update the extracted values as you wish in Excel for later upload back into franchiseIQ. They will then be visible in reports and within the GL Explorer screen.

As an example, you could choose to download all actual values from last year and then apply a simple formula in Excel to adjust these by a certain %.

These values could be then imported and used as the basis for your current year budgets.

Similarly, you could take last year’s budget values and then adjust them by a certain % and re-import those as this year’s budgets.
