Tutor description

Budgeting for future profit cash or cash flows requires the prediction, or forecasting, of future revenues and costs at varying activity levels. A forecasting method is a systematic way of organising information from the past to infer to occurrence of an event in future. ‘Systematic’ means following a distinct set of procedures in a prescribed sequence. A forecasting model is one expression of a forecasting method. More specifically, it is a simplified representation of reality, comprising a set of relationship, historical information on these relationships, and procedures to project these relationships into future.
