Achieve Better Results
QuickBooks Premier helps you easily create a business
plan, step-by-step, using your existing QuickBooks data
and answers to simple questions. A pro forma balance
sheet, profit and loss statement, and statement of cash
flow will automatically be projected for the next three
years. The business plan is based on the format
recommended by the U.S. Small Business Administration
for loan applications or lines of credit.
You can automatically create an annual forecast of
income and expenses using your QuickBooks data. Easily
adjust forecast numbers by applying a percentage
increase or decrease across a line item. Later, you can
compare your forecast to your actual results.
Help Improve Profitability
The Expert Analysis Tool allows you to assess
performance trends for your company in important areas,
including profits, sales, borrowing, and liquidity. The
tool gives you a written assessment and offers helpful
tips. It is updated with current industry data for more
than 130 industries, so you can compare how you are
performing to companies with similar revenues in your
industry. Plus, you can compare one time period to
another and reveal trends.
QuickBooks helps you predict your cash flow for the next six
weeks, using your QuickBooks data and your answers to simple
questions. Easily view your projected "available to

out several "what if?" scenarios to see how making
changes to your receipts and disbursements could affect your
weekly cash balance.
