INTRODUCTION

PREAMBLE

Every Business oriented organization is aimed among other at making profits so high as possible.  All efforts, therefore are diversified at effective planning process with a maximum cost involvement in its decision making drive towards achieving the desired objectives, management often provides basic guideline which are quantified in financial terms and it mineral values.

Budgeting and budgetary control will continue to play a significant role in banking industry, its contributions today’s in competitive Banking environment and budgetary techniques by banking industry spared by intense revealer from other financial institution.

Due to the nature of banking industry, budgeting cannot be treated in exactly the same way in manufacturing firms.  Although the practice is different.  The difference lies in the fact that manufacturing firms are product oriented while banks are service oriented organization.

Budgeting is required to achieve many deferent aims within an organization, if not only aid in planning, co-ordinations and communicating the activities of the banks, but also as a control and motivating devices in the management of the management of the organization.

Budgeting call for effective monitoring and controlled by the head of the organization since budget animates from different sections departments and all the branches of a company which no company is an exception so as to guarantee its reliability and also minimize deviation from plans.

Budgeting starts with the setting out of the objectives of the organization by the management for the budget year according to government’s fiscal and monetary guideline and policies. The top management staffs must communicate the policy affect the long term plan to those who are responsible for preparing the current year budget.  The manager prepare the minimal budgets for those area for which they are responsible and submit it to their supervisory officer while the budget is examined and summarized into master budget which consists of budgeted profits and loss accounts, balance sheet and the cash statement.
