Financial Projections & Forecasts

Reviewing  the financial results.

Is there a difference between a forecast and a projection? Absolutely.

forecast is based upon assumptions reflecting the conditions the business expects to exist and the course of action reasonably expected to be followed.   A forecast can utilize a specific monetary amount or a reasonable range based on the various assumptions in place.    This information is not restricted and it is typically what is published to the general public for publicly traded companies.  Management expects the goals in a forecast to be met and believes them to be reasonably attainable.

projection is prepared to present one or more hypothetical courses of action that the business might follow.  It is typically prepared for a restricted specific party, often internal management. This type of analysis can definitely be thought of as less realistic, even referred to as “pie in the sky”.

The main difference between a forecast and a projection is the nature of the assumption:

  • In a forecast, these assumptions are based upon specific fact patterns, making it more representative of the expectations for actual future events.
  • In a projection the assumptions are more of the desired scenario, not necessarily what is most likely to occur.

Both forecasts and projections have a place in effectively managing your business.  At Holmes & Company, we work with to make clear and effective forecasts and projections to help you run your business.
