Step 2: Enter your assumptions on the input tabs

Manufacturing Revenue Projection Template

  • ​The revenue forecast model will help you predict sales from two sources: consumer sales and wholesale. The model determines customer base growth by considering sales representative leads and conversions. ​The model then looks at spend per customer based on the products you sell and average customer purchases. Revenue will be projected out through five years and will automatically calculate and appear on the financial statements. 

Manufacturing Overhead Cost Sheet

  • Starting with some already provided common industry line items and default amounts, you will provide your other unique expenses into the expense calculation model. ​This model will then pipe in the expenses and cash flows directly on to the various financial statements for you. For maximum detail, you can enter your monthly expenses as either fixed amounts or you can set them as a percentage of revenue for variable items that may differ month to month. 

Manufacturing General Assumptions Model

  • The general assumptions model will use balance sheet items such as fixed assets, loans, investments, inventory assumptions, and accounts receivable assumptions and you will input some basic data to calculate the trickier items: loan amortization, interest expense, depreciation expense, inventory purchases, etc. 

Manufacturing Salaries Sheet

  • The manufacturing salaries and distributions model helps calculate the necessary monthly expenses that come with salaried employees such as employer taxes and benefits. This model also accommodates distributions for payment methods made to owners.

Step 3: The model is automatically updated based on your assumptions

Manufacturing Financials At-A-Glance Tab

  • The At-A-Glace tab shows you a comprehensive financial snapshot of pitch-deck-ready items such as graphs, charts, ratios, and financial summaries for your manufacturing plans.

Financial Statement Tabs

  • There are six Financial Statement tabs: the annual formats of the income statement, cash flow statement, and balance sheet, and the month-by-month breakdowns of the same financial statements. 

Investor Dashboard Tab

  • The Investor Dashboard tab gives you, investors, or your lender the power to see the impacts of editing several of the main assumptions of the revenue model and how that changes your financial outlook on paper. This tab also delivers the income statement from your model and a special, modified income statement (both with all of your already provided numbers) that updates as you change the major assumptions. 

Tables, charts, graphs and dashboards include:

Frequently Asked Questions

What financial ratios are important for manufacturing companies?

According to investopedia, some of the most critical ratios for a manufacturing business include inventory turnover, revenue per employee ratio, return on net assets, and manufacturing cost to expense ratio. Our template can help you decide a lot of factors while you plan your business by predicting the next five years of financial data.

How do I start a small manufacturing business?

A critical component of the starting process is to research thoroughly about the industry you expect to enter.  You should aim to understand what would give you a competitive advantage as a manufacturer versus another manufacturer that is perhaps overseas and a low cost supplier.  Your next steps would involve writing up a business plan and finding investors or lenders to fund your business.  Manufacturing is capital intensive as you will need to fund space, equipment, raw materials, and working capital.  Our template can give you a solid financial model to help you talk to and secure investors.

Can manufacturing still be profitable in the United States?

Yes it is possible to run a profitable manufacturing company in the United States; however, you will need to have a clear strategy to compete successfully against overseas low-cost manufacturers.  If you are manufacturing something that is hard to ship overseas, that may give you a key competitive advantage.  Additionally, if you are able to automate much of the process, you may be able to minimize the low cost labor advantage of overseas manufacturers. 

The cost of the template is estimated at $ 2000

If you hired a CPA to build this template from scratch it would take at least 20 hours of billable time to build a similar template. At an average hourly rate of $100 per hour it would cost you $2,000.

20 hours X $100 = $2,000 value

But we've already done all the work and you don't need to hire a CPA
