Accounts Receivable • Amount owed to business • Effective management includes 3 tools: -sales analysis (tracing and categorizing) -aged trial balance (length of time for outstanding balances) -credit policy (collection policy) E xpense Management • Typical health club 70% operating/22% fixed expense • Categories-payroll, rent/lease, administration, utilities D epreciation • Process of allocating cost of a long-term asset over estimated useful life as an expense. • Must know useful life and salvage value 12 tools of expense management • Accounting controls and security • Value analysis • Bidding • Negotiating • Doing it yourself • Eliminating • • • • • • Contracting out Trading or bartering Substituting Donating Efficient space use Buying used Tax considerations • Federal taxes • State and local taxes Compensation • Make certain that pay is competitive with similar positions • Recognize that employees are incomeproducing assets • Balance payroll with employee productivity • Manage payroll costs • Consider payroll costs as investments Oklahoma City Market Vale • • • • Head Athletic Trainer- $44,000 Physical Therapist- $56,500 Exercise Specialist- $35,000 Campus Recreation Director- $52,000 Groups of employees • Upper management/supervisors general manager • Full-time staff (salaried) front desk manager • Full-time staff (hourly) tennis instructor • Part-time staff (hourly) child care staff • Outside contractors aerobics instructor F orms of compensation • • • • • • Wages and salaries Overtime pay Commissions Bonuses and profit sharing Performance-based bay Pay for time not worked (vacation, holidays, sick, etc) • Benefits (medical, life, disability, death, illness, 401 K, retirement, etc) Benefits • Soft cost to employees but to employer they are hard cost. • Examples: Taxes (FICA, unemployment, workers’ comp, disability), health and life, holiday, vacation, sick, retirement, bonuses, training and education, uniforms, etc. Can be anywhere from 21-32% of base salary Three aspects of budgeting • Budgeting Process • Categories of budgets • Managing budgets E stablishing an Accounting System • System should be able to be – – – – Easy and friendly Track daily financial transactions Reliable and flexible Do checks and balances Budget As a Process • Should be connected process to all of organization • Helps organizations achieve mission and objectives • Helps prioritize needs • Develops future direction Budgeting Characteristics • Defines, verifies, and redefines organization objectives • Both present and future oriented • Focuses on expenditures and outcomes • Identifies population • Recognize and respond to local politics Budgeting Characteristics • Enhance coordination of divisions • Connects and supports other planning and evaluation • Complies with State and Local laws • Produces understandable information - to increase communication Common components to budget processing • 1. Start with development, clarification, and review of the organization goals for next year • 2. Managers develop work plans and estimates of revenue and expenditures • 3. Evaluate the timing of the anticipated revenue and expenses to understand the appropriate time to make purchasing and hiring decisions Budget Process • Must support strategic plan • Organized based upon structure of the organization (may be organized by departments, geographical location, divisions or units) Budget Process • Operating budgets are developed because– require separate source of funding (grants,bonds) – necessary information to assist with program fund raising – essential because operate with partnerships with several organizations – desirable to more precisely monitor and evaluate Operating Plan - two parts • Mission statement – is a verbal description of the agency’s goals and objectives and how the agency anticipates meeting them • Budget Statement – financial component of the operating plan – they document anticipated income and expenses, and explain cash flow and staffing M ission Statement four components • Goal statement - broad statements or general direction • Objectives - statements of intention that are measurable • Strategies - specific ideas to implement to achieve objectives Assumptions - items that are necessary for strategies to be accomplished that are outside the control of the agency (school has to give permission to distribute flyers) Budget Statement four components • Budget assumptions - explanation of each line of the budget • Staffing guidelines - explanations of when staff will be hired, rate, and hours • Budget spreadsheet - actual line-item breakdown of budgeted amounts (monthly) • Cash flow analysis - reviewing the bottom line see when cash is available to pay expenses Calendars and timelines (Budget Cycle) • Length of the budget development cycle varies depending upon size and complexity of the operation • Budgets take effect upon specific time of year (Fiscal, Calendar, Seasonal) • Budget cycle for approval usually includes many steps (2-6 months, depending upon how the organization is funded - government takes more time for approval vs. private) Budget Time Frame • Calendar Year • Fiscal Year Budgeting Approaches Two Approaches • Incremental – budget developed through incremental changes of previous budgets – use many methods (% increase, projected, demand/supply, even computer generated models) • Zero-based – each year start with zero and have to develop rationales for every item in the budget (income and expense) Approaches • Two other ways to approach budgets are: – fixed allocation budgeting - have set amounts they receive (common in P & R) – variable expense - expense and income generated are linked (if revenue is higher than expected then expenses can go up) F actors to determine type of budget • • • • • • • • Size or organization influence and roles of stockholders complexity traditions politics resources legal requirements organizational capabilities and support Two categories • Operating - developed each year to plan and allocate financial resources that will be used during the normal course of operations. Project income and expenses (wages, supplies, utilities, etc) • Capital - help organizations identify, evaluate, prioritize, and finance capital projects (land, facilities, major repairs, etc) Usually expensive items in which their cost is allocated over many years. Nonrecurring expenditures with multiyear impacts Choosing a type of budget • Format of budget impacts budgeting results • the format defines the readers’ reality and channels the readers’ attention and thought process Types of Operating Budgets • • • • Line-item Zero-based Program Revenue • Performance-based • Program/Performance • Cash flow L ine-item budgets • Focuses attention on items of expense - not purpose. It supports hierarchical authority and control • Earliest and most common type • Also called object of expenditure budgets • Income and expenses are grouped into accounts (specific categories) • Easy to understand and control L ine item - weaknesses • Focus on items of expense rather than goals • does not require or support evaluation of programs (not based on productivity but rather just status quo) L ine item - weaknesses • Also allows for efficient allocation of funds – never ask for less money – spend all monies that are allocated – never encourage scrutiny by making major changes – pad your budget - to prepare for cuts – eliminate request for new personnel or capital that will be on going – allocation of cuts and increase are spread equally across departments Z ero-based budgets (ZBB) • Priority based - requires a comparative assessment of input and outputs of existing and proposed programs • focus on efficiency and practicality • institutionalizes evaluation as part of budgeting process • Aim is to reduce duplication and establish priorities Z ero-based budgets (ZBB) continued • continuing review of existing and proposed programs – determine if existing programs should be continued – assess relevance and contributions with priorities and capabilities – assess capacity to continue program at acceptable level – increase efficiency of resource allocation across programs and departments Z BB Steps • clarify program goals • identify decision units • develop activity-decision packages (descriptions, goals, levels, funding) • rank decision packages • decide allocations based on ranking • execute and evaluate program performance Z BB advantages • Identifies and assess new approaches • requires to consider costs and benefits • everyone is aware of costs and level of performances Z BB weakness • Difficult to implement and sustain because: – perceived threat to existing – gives rise to negative competition – assessment can be difficult and costly – challenges status quo Revenue Budgets • Anticipates the types, amounts, and timing of revenue for different budget periods • Methods used to forecast revenues include: trend analysis and cycle projection, comparative evaluations, and econometric models. Revenue Budgets • Revenue projections are performed by: – examining past revenue performance – identifying internal and external factors that correlate with and have the most influence on revenue – making assumptions relating to the future condition and behavior of these factors Cash-flow budgets • Emphasis in on amounts and timing of cash inflows and outflows. • Positive cash flow is if available cash exceeds outflow • Negative cash flow is if cash expenditures exceed cash on-hand Cash-flow budgets • Cash-flow budgets: – project the amounts and timing of cash flow – predict periods of expected cash surpluses and deficiencies – identify possible strategies for dealing with shortages and surpluses Program budgets • Program budgets came about because of the concern that line item budgets were too focused on inputs and controlling expenditures, with little or no emphasis on outcomes. Program budgets • Program budgets redirect attention away from only expenditures to the purpose, benefits, performance of programs and facilities - link expenditures with policy, objectives, and impact Program budgets • Identify projected revenue and expenditures for distinct programs • Used frequently with programs funded by grants Program budgets - Advantages • better communication on how resources are allocated and expended within an organization • provide a comparison of the costs of providing different programs and facilities • allow a better understanding of the programmatic implications of proposed budget cuts • identify the extent to which fee-supported programs are covered Program budgets 5 components • • • • 1. Program description 2. Outputs 3. Expenditures (associated with outputs) 4. Performance measures (workload, efficiency, and indicators) • 5. Alternative approaches Performance budgets • Budgets which link input (resources) and outputs (volume of work produced) to outcomes (extent results have been achieved) • Important part is the workload measures(a work plan that justifies the budget total), cost and output measures (basis for comparing the cost and quality of services), if the services are delivered efficient and economically, and if the outcome and impact of the program meets the goals Performance/ program budgets • P/PB is newest form of budget and combines the other two. It is outcomebased and integrates planning, budgeting, and evaluation. • Links objectives to programs Performance/ program budgets • Process includes: – identification of broad program goals and expected outcomes for clients – consideration of services and strategies, then develop specific and measurable objectives – selection of a single outcome measure for each objective – documentation of outcome - impact on client is most important Capital Budgets • Commit and allocate money for major new items • Usually differ from operating because they differ in the source of funding, decisionmaking process, time frame, and monitoring Capital BudgetsCharacteristics • Provide relatively large benefit to organization that accrues over a period longer than a year • Difficult to reverse once purchased or started • Usually require formal review process Capital BudgetsPurpose • Assess and compare the likely affects and performance and financial requirements of alternative capital projects • determine and clarify relationship between capital projects and programs • forecast financial requirements • evaluate capital projects and financing methods with policy • identify the best investment Capital BudgetsD ecisions based on... • • • • • Contribution and support future capacity and capability regulatory and performance requirements replacement criteria (full life/return) linkage of acquisition and replacement to goals Budgeting Keys • • • • Cut cost without reducing quality Accountability Do not allow items to “walk” Every $ saved is a $ earned M anaging Tools • • • • • • Auditing Payroll analysis Purchase order system Bid system Inventory control Contingency planning Audit • Internal • External • GAAPP - general accepted accounting procedures and practices M anaging Tools • Auditing-review of financial operations – Internal-day-to-day procedures are being followed (within organization) – External-review the entire financial system, checks for accuracy and investigates all financial processes (outside organization) – **audits confirm accuracy – does not evaluate the quality of financial decisions M anaging Tools • Payroll analysis-compare projected expenses for payroll to the actual. Done each pay period • Purchase order system-centralized and automated to compare budgeted items verses actual purchases. Needs to incorporate policies and procedures like specifications, guidelines, authorization, ordering, and emergency buying M anaging Tools • Bid system-bid process encourages vendors to compete on specific item so organization can get the best price • Inventory control-information about movable and unmovable property.
