Estimated Fringes and Taxes: Fringes, payroll and sales tax are computed instantly and automatically to the appropriate accounts. If fringes and taxes do not apply you can simply delete them from the entire budget with a simple push of a button in Globals page.
Instant Calculation: When you make a change, the budget totals are recalculated instantly. Actual costs, including fringes and taxes, are always reflected automatically in the totals of the budgeted amounts.
Cash Flow Sheets with Built-in Accounting of Expenses: Input your costs for every production period to control your budget. Cash Flow Totals for the development, pre-production, production and post-production periods are linked to your Summary Top Sheet in the Total Accumulated Cost to Date column allowing for quick and easy monitoring of costs to date and the amount of the remaining budget.
Automatic Top Sheet Report and Lists: The Summary Top Sheet, Cast List, Extras & Atmosphere List, Property List and Location List are automatically generated as you complete your budget worksheets.
