External factors, such as the state of the economy, changes to legislative requirements and technological innovation can have an impact on how much of the budget is available. As an ongoing document, it is important to continuously scan the market to ensure that you are still working within the budget. For example, if there is a change in the economy whereby spending decreases, then depending on your product and/or service, you may find that your customers no longer purchase your product. This downturn in spending shall be reflected in your allocated budget. If there is a decrease in the demand for your product, then you will no longer need to supply as many, thus your budget will usually shrink to reflect that budget. Financial information found in financial reports such as the Profit and Loss statements will demonstrate when there is a decrease in profits, thus a decrease in sales. However, do not lose sight of the fact that a decrease in profits may correlate with an increase in theft. Depending on the size and function of your organisation, the financial information that you keep will vary. However, financial information that you may need to monitor could include: f Budgets f Ratio analysis f Budget forecasts f Cash flow statements f Profit and loss statement f Balance sheets f Investment and liability reports When reviewing financial information, as with any over sort of reviewing, it is important to identify the variations in the reports and then try to identify the causes of these variations. It is only when you identify the causes of the variations that you will be able to identify how to correct the variations.
