There are no significant drawbacks to using a Flexible Budget. However, it is essential to note that a Flexible Budget should not be used in place of sound Financial Planning. Instead, a Flexible Budget should be used as a tool to help managers respond to fluctuations inactivity but should not be relied upon to make decisions about the future organizational activity.

What are the types of Flexible Budgets?

There are two types of Flexible Budgets: static and rolling. With a static budget, the company sets a specific budget amount for each period, regardless of how much revenue or expenses actually vary from month to month. A rolling budget, on the other hand, adjusts automatically as actual revenue and expenses change from one month to the next. This type of budget is more responsive to actual business conditions, but it can be more difficult to track and manage.
