Financial Modelling

Financial modelling

Financial modelling consists of building a financial representation of some or all aspects of your company’s operations in form of an Excel spreadsheet.

Those models can be used to predict and analyse the impact of different assumptions and variables on your financial results. For example, you can build a model that shows how an increase in suppliers’ prices or income tax can affect your profits.

Financial models are used by businesses of all sizes

  • To estimate costs and profitability of new projects (budgets, resource allocations)
  • When raising capital (e.g., whether to raise debt finance or equity)
  • When acquiring businesses or assets (comparing different options)
  • When selling fixed assets, business units or subsidiaries
  • To estimate sales growth (e.g., the effects of taking or not taking certain actions)
  • To evaluating options for organic growth (new products, stores, markets, etc.)
  • When allocating resources (e.g., to invest in a new ERP system or new website)
  • For testing various scenarios and sensitivity analysis
  • For business valuations (e.g., when raising private investment or selling a business)
