Budget planning is the process of preparing detailed short term plans know as budget for the function activities and departments of the organization and converting the long term corporate plan into action.

The budgetary process is an integral part of both with planning and control. Too often budget are associated with negative penny pending control activities where as the full process is much broader and more positive than that. Budgeting is about making plans for the future implementing those plans and monitoring activities to see whether they conform to the plan.

To do this successfully, it requires full top management support, co-operative and motive middle managers and staff, as well as organized reporting system.

The need for control system and performance report has become over more critical in every years as a result of excessive budget restriction even for the manufacturing and service organization.
