Financial Objectives

A company's financial needs or goals for the future. Corporate financial planning involves identifying these financial objectives and determining how to achieve them. Simply put, the main financial objective is to make money, but financial objectives often also determine the amount that is needed or desired, the timeframe in which it must be made, and how the money will be spent. This can be a complicated process.
