What is an Expense Dashboard?

An expense dashboard allows you to track and manage your expenses (as an individual or as a business). With this dashboard, you’ll be able to compare your current expenses with your planned expenses to determine if you’re overspending, underspending, or spending as budgeted.

Additionally, it lets you see what exactly you’re spending money on, and whether (or not) there are opportunities to lower your expenses further.

What Should Be Included in an Expense Dashboard?

Avoid the temptation to include a bunch of expenses metrics that don’t matter to your business. Build your expenses dashboard to showcase only meaningful financial metrics and KPIs. This will in turn, allow you to quickly identify what’s working and what isn’t, manage your costs better, maintain a healthy cash flow, lower your taxes, and ultimately boost the profitability of your business.

The most important expenses metrics you should be tracking are:

  • Total expenses
  • Open invoice amount
  • Expenses by vendor
  • Profitability
  • Cash summary
