Benefits of Conducting Reserve Fund Study for Organizations


A reserve fund study entails a professional study of the existing fixed and component assets of a firm. This detailed study of assets helps determine how much of the organization’s capital needs to be set aside periodically into a reserve fund in order to ensure continued smooth functioning of assets, including infrastructure and components like machinery, among other things.

A reserve fund study comprises the following elements based on which the decision can be made on how best to manage the capital for future needs:

  • A detailed report on the status of the company’s infrastructure and assets
  • An estimate based on these findings of the reserve fund provisions that need to be created for smooth future performance
  • An additional report underlining various methods to minimize future costs.

The components of the reserve fund study allow organizations the room to plan out their finances in a manner that reduces risk of losses.

Here are the top three benefits that every firm can avail through conducting a reserve fund study:

  1. Keeps the firm financially prepared
    A reserve fund is an important liquid asset for a firm. With a general idea as to the kind of financial capital the firm’s assets might require, the firm can be prepared for any contingencies that might arise. Further, the reserve can also be employed in favor of overcoming any unforeseen financial circumstances as well.
  2. Ensures the smooth functioning of the firm’s activities
    A firm can only run if its infrastructure and component assets are in place and functioning smoothly. A hiccup with either of these can result in losses amounting to millions for a firm. Rather than take that risk, it is better for the firm to conduct a reserve fund study and keep resources aside for the smooth functioning of the firm’s activities, not just in the present, but also in the future.
  3. Increase the firm’s financial position and standing
    It is always advisable for firms to put aside extra money for future contingencies than the estimate value. Additionally, reserve fund studies are accompanied by guidelines through focused study of the organization’s assets as to how the firm can minimize its costs in the future. Such additional savings can go a long way in case of emergencies. Systematic savings not only help the firm meet unforeseen liabilities, but also can be used to expand the organization’s business activities.

Being financially prepared is particularly lucrative for organizations in the current economic scenario. Losses that are usually more easily recoverable are all intensified at such a time when business activities are generally facing a hit given the recent turbulences in the world economy.

Now more than ever, investing in professional reserve fund study is of utmost importance to ensure that the firm is financially secure. It is a far better bet than keeping aside funds without carefully assessing estimates first. For businesses in the current market, it could mean the difference between survival and going under.
