Budget planning calendar

A budget planning calendar is a schedule of the dates by which budget information must be submitted by department managers. The calendar also contains the dates of budget meetings, such as initial planning meetings and subsequent review meetings. This calendar is especially important when certain budgets, such as the sales budget, must be completed before other departments can begin their budgeting work. The planning calendar typically covers at least two months and may extend up to four months, so that all budgeting activities can be addressed by the end of the fiscal year.
