Can anyone explain zero budgeting

Zero based Budgeting would mean that you do not have any previous expense pattern based on which you could predict your future expenses or revenue. You would have to start budgeting from scratch by estimating the amount that would be spent for each and every expense head. You would need to take the revenue from Sales Head/Manager who would provide the Sales Forecast taking into account the market conditions and revenue generated by competitors of similar product.

And a zero based budget doesn't mean that your checking account has to equal zero- it is based on the premise that every dollar has a place to go, and every one of them is accounted for- leaving a "balance of zero". Good luck!

Zero-based budgeting (ZBB) is a system of budgeting where the business owner, accountant or, in larger companies, the budget manager starts the budget from scratch each time and justifies each dollar spent based on the strategic goals of the company. This creates the opportunity for companies to capitalize on inefficiencies and to find creative ways to reduce costs. While more time consuming, ZBB better ensures that the resources used are going toward furthering the company’s stated goals.
The defining factor of ZBB is that each budget for the financial year in question is a blank slate. So, each expense in the budget must be justified and clearly linked to the stated strategic goal of the entity. Where do we see this style of zero-based budgeting most often? Most recently, food businesses.
