VIEWS: 571 PAGES: 2

This Operating Expense Forecast provides a spreadsheet to help determine a company's operating costs over a given year. The forecast is an estimate of ongoing (fixed cost) operating expenses for an entire fiscal year. A company's historical data can serve as a useful guide to predict future operating expenses; new ventures can try to use the historical data of comparable companies to make projections. The spreadsheet automatically totals the expenses by month and the year-to-date totals for each expense account.
