A budget is a tool for tracking your business’s progress against your plans. A well-prepared budget can also help you decide when it’s best to make a major purchase, hire additional staff, or draw money out of your business account.

This chapter shows you how to make the budgeting and planning tools built into QuickBooks work for you.
