Financial Projections and Forecasts
Financial projection and forecasts are one of the key areas of finance. Projected financial statements show an anticipated financial position, financial performance, and cash flow movements over some time in the future.
Financial projections are critical for the success of any business. If you are looking to raise finance through debt or equity, your lender or investor will require these projections.
We have identified the four most common scenarios where you need financial projections in Canada.
Financial Projections for Business Plan
The financial section is an integral part of any business plan. Financial projections contain underlying information needed to complete the financial section of a business plan. A poorly constructed financial section can result in an ineffective business plan!
Financial Projections for Bank Loans
Financial projections are essential for business loans in Canada. It is not uncommon for your banker to ask you to submit financial projections and a business plan. The objective is to see the business’s ability to pay back the loan and financing cost.
Even if your bank doesn’t want financial projections, don’t you want to see if you will be able to pay back?
Financial Projections for Startups and Investors
Startups often need to seek capital in different ways that do not involve debt. For example, investors to whom the equity stock will be issued.
These investors want to see if your business idea is worth risking their capital. They want to know when they are going to see the profits from their investment and how long they need to wait before the profits reach them in the forms of dividends.
These financial projections also play a key role in determining the pre-money or post-money valuation of your startup.
Financial Projections for Established Businesses
Financial projections are not only required for raising capital or for submitting them to external users. They play a key role in important management decision-making, including the aforementioned financing decisions. Pricing, downsizing, upsizing, mergers and acquisitions, and every other similar decision require financial projections.
That’s why financial projections are one of the main responsibilities of a CFO or a virtual CFO today.
Hastily done financial projections can make or break the chances of raising money.

SATISFIED CLIENT STORIES
“I have hired services from Maroof's firm for filing my tax returns. They gave me maximum insights and a truthful picture of the complete process. Their business ethics are excellent. Gotten quick feedback on almost all the questions I posed at him. I would recommend him for obtaining all tax advice. Good Luck!”
“We are operating in different countries and have to deal with big stakeholders in Oil and gas industry. I have been using the accounting services of Maroof HS for the last 3 yrs now and I can vouch for his competency and efficiency. However, I personally appreciate his insights in other aspects like banking, company structure and fiscals, accounting system, and general financial tips that I find very useful and have definitely had an impact on our profitability.”
“We are a very young and extremely busy catering business in Toronto. Our accountant left us, leaving us hanging with a very complicated and messy set of books. We feel very fortunate to have found Maroof who is very thorough and methodical. He and his team quickly picked up and sorted out everything very well. We love the way they work; the hard work, dedication, skill set and availability all the time.”
“We got our financial statements compiled for 4 years. All we had were a bunch of scattered invoices, bills, and bank statements. All the data was organized, put into the accounting system and we got our financial statements. They coordinated with the independent auditors from the management side and we finally had audited financial statements. Wonderful people!”
Very professional and easy to deal with, Maroof was flawless in dealing with and helping us secure our financing for a multi-million dollar automotive operations in GTA. We tried several places, and Maroof was by far the best and easiest to deal with, thanks for all the help, my friend! Looking forward to more future business!
Maroof was super helpful and professional. Helped me through a tonne of my business and personal taxes. Answered quickly, answered all my questions, was patient with the process, made the entire thing understandable. I'll be sticking with this guy for all my future tax needs and have already referred him to a few of my friends. Super legit dude, friendly personality.
We are new to Toronto and temporary residents. We use our US LLC to do business. tax time was so painful for us. I found contact details of Maroof CPA on the IRS website. Five minutes of the phone call helped me clarify all of my questions. We have now our US CPA and Canadian CA in one place. a very great guy.
Maroof was incredibly helpful! I was really struggling with my taxes as an aspiring actress as they can be very complicated as well as being a student. Maroof went above and beyond - he was very communicative, prompt, and always available to answer any questions. I will use these services again next year!
I am a self-employed sole proprietor. I just opened my new corporation and needed some tax advice before I start running my business. I visited Maroof at their Woodbridge location. I really admire his technical skills and hospitality. It was a wonderful conversation. he did not even charge us and we got valuable time. Thank you for your time Maroof and we hope to see you on a regular basis now.
Thank you Maroof for guiding me so patiently. I am in Indian who returned from Canada and became non resident of Canada. I live in UAE now. I still have some income coming from there. Another accountant filed my returns wrong and it was a mess. Maroof explained me the whole process and the steps I must take to make sure that I do not have unintentional tax consequences. Very ethical and professional chat with this guy.
I would recommend it for anybody having complicated tax situation.
