Build realistic projections for your Hardware and subscription business with this Excel Template.
How do I use this template?
1) Download our fully unlocked and ready-to-use Excel file.
2) Enter your business’ information into these various input tabs:
– Revenue model helps predict your business’ revenue through two sources: hardware sales and subscription support. You can predict hardware sales based on the conversion rate of returning customer upgrades and website visitors. Software revenue is based on hardware customers and a monthly fee. As you input your figures, your cost of goods sold is updated on the financial statement.
-You are then prompted to input your expenses to the operating expense model. This generates your expenses and cash flows on your financial statements. You can input your fixed monthly expenses or monthly expenses as a percentage of revenue for variable items, you decide. Also, as the first 3 months of the template are broken down individually, start-up expenses can be entered easily.
-The general assumptions model does all the hard calculations, so you don’t have to, such as loan amortization, interest, depreciation expenses, etc. Simply input information from your balance sheet and the rest is done for you!
-Calculate monthly taxes, salaries, and benefits expenses with the salaries and distribution model. It also in turn enables you to plan for distributions to owners.
3) Next, these various output tabs will be automatically updated:
-The ‘at-a-glance’ tab shows you a snapshot of the finances via financial charts, graphs, and ratios. These can be used in your pitch deck.
-The financial statements tab contains the income statement, cash flow statement, and balance sheet (which automatically balance). Each statement also has monthly breakdowns.
-See how sensitive your model is to changes in specific variables without altering your data with the Investor Dashboard tab. This tab displays your models’ income statement along with a modified income statement that updates as you alter the main assumptions.
