This online financial planning system is based on the Quik-Plan
facility built into our range of financial planners - Exl-Plan.
These planners can handle several thousand assumption values and contain
about ten thousand built-in formulae. They produce detailed, fully-integrated
projections (P&Ls, cashflow statements, balance sheets, ratio analyses,
graphs etc.) by month for the first year, quarterly for second & third
years and annually thereafter. Quik-Plan
is designed to generate high-level, quick an' dirty projections
for strategic business planning purposes. It uses several thousand formulae
to generate its projections.
Use of the online planner entails (1) completion of the Online
Business Planning Form and (2) submission to PlanWare where the assumptions
are processed using a specially modified version of Exl-Plan. The results
(income statements, cashflow projections, forecast balance sheets, ratio
analyses etc.) are sent to the submitter as an email with a file attachment
containing an Excel file (*.XLS). This file can be read by Excel releases
5, 7, 8, 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 running on Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/Win7,8,10. Note: If using Lotus 1-2-3, you should be able to read this XLS file.
You can download a sample set of projections here
(file name: SAMPLE.XLS -120k - after downloading use Excel

If you need high-level income and cashflow projections, you should also
look at Exl-Plan
Free, a fully-integrated, 2-year financial planner for Excel which
is available for free and downloadable here.

If you need general advice, review our paper on Preparing
Financial Projections and pay particular attention to the Tips
& Traps. Above all, don't use over-optimistic or unrealistic assumptions.
If a start-up, allow for the possibility that it could take much longer and
require more funds to get going than expected.
There are two ways to complete the Online Business Planning Form:
If you have access to a printer (Recommended method):
Enter your assumptions etc. into the Form. Be sure to double-check
that all the tables have been fully completed.
Press the Submit Assumptions Now button and await an acknowledgment.

received, we will send you, within two to three days, an email with an

This service is provided by PlanWare in accordance
with the following terms and conditions:
As far as practicable, we will email projections
to a submitter within one to three days of receiving assumptions.
We will post a message to this page if there is likely to be any undue
delay. However, we accept no responsibility for email transmission/delivery
failures or delays howsoever caused.
We accept no responsibility whatsoever for the accuracy
or completeness of the assumptions and/or projections for which the
submitter must assume full responsibility. Projections are supplied
"as is" and without any representations or warranties whatsoever.
Reports cannot be tailored to handle individual requirements
and we are under no obligation to respond to follow-on queries etc.
We accept assumptions for only one business per submitter
or only one client in the case of submissions from professional advisers
etc. However, we permit up to two sets of assumptions per business.
These could relate to (a) two scenarios for the same business or (b)
represent initial assumptions followed by revised assumptions altered
in the light of projections generated by initial assumptions.
We place no restrictions on the use of projections
by submitters but we would be very grateful for an acknowledgment of
