CASE STUDY-Ned Kelly Ned Kelly has decided to start a taxi business in his hometown of Broadstairs . An accountant advises that he needs to budget the first year’s profit or loss, and also the cash flow from trading (the capital budget is being calculated separately) so that he can calculate how much overdraft from the bank will be needed. Ned currently plans to have three taxis and nine drivers, plus £5,000 in the bank on 1 April 2013. Each driver can work five eight-hour shifts per week, and will take four weeks holiday per year including public holidays. At least one taxi will be available for hire 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. No relief drivers will be used and no overtime will be paid.

The average receipts per taxi hour are expected to be £25 for the first three months, rising to £30 thereafter.

Maintenance costs per taxi will be £120 per month, payable one month in arrears, and annual road tax and licence fees per taxi will be £600, payable at the beginning of the first month’s trading.

All staff costs will be paid in arrears on a monthly basis. Utilities (water, gas and electricity) are expected to cost £1,500 a quarter, payable by direct debit in the first week of…
