Financial forecasting for customers

In this article

Customers forecasting completes financial planning with customer data. For example, a company can forecast sales by indicating accounts for the most important customers.

Forecasting with the double entry method also allows you to indicate accounts for individual clients. Depending on the requirement, customer management can be done with balance sheet accounts, profit and loss accounts or with cost and profit centers.

When changing a budget movement, the forecasts for each customer are also updated individually.

Accounts table

Set up accounts for customers in the Accounts table. In the Estimate column you will also have the updated forecast balances for the accounting period. At a glance, you can view what the forecast for the individual customer will be.
