Budgeting and Planning for Accountants in Local Government

Are you responsible for a local government’s budget and financial planning process? We understand the challenges of the public sector where there is increasing pressure to improve services and be more transparent, shrinking budgets and ever-increasing regulatory requirements. Some of the problems you may have, include:
  • Not enough time
  • Too many spreadsheets
  • Unavoidable errors
  • Lack of flexibility
  • Unreliable reports, forecasts and plans
  • Complicated or outdated software solutions
  • Need something simple to involve more people in different departments without increasing the risk for errors
Being able to plan, forecast and budget accurately so that you can keep the leaders of the local government or other public sector body happy and better informed to enable them to make better decisions, is crucial. This can be a real nightmare without the right tools. You don’t have time to get your head around complicated new software, which often offers expensive frills that won’t solve your problems or only offers non-flexible standard models.
