Financial Modeling/Forecasting templates?

All,

Does anybody have any good ideas on where to download excel financial templates for putting together the numbers for my startup as cost sheet, budget, forecast and eventually the rest of the financial model as Income Statement, Cash flow, etc...?

Also is there a calculator on how to budget for health benefits by state over and above the base salary as I prepare the numbers and do the burn rate analysis etc.?

We will hire an accountant eventually but need to do this myself for now.

Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

Somewhat random question -- does anyone know of a good internet-based way
to put together and share models?

Excel frustrates me in that it doesn\'t connect to my other data
sources...accounting programs don\'t either...(neither does SAP for that
matter with my client companies).

Anyone found something that\'s fairly lightweight that allows you to model
up front and then close the loop with your data on the backend so you can
iterate the model in a more data-driven way?

There\'s plenty if you Google them.

I\'m taking an MBA, and honestly, Google has saved my bacon on a lot of the accounting stuff.

If you are looking at raising money in the near-term and want a sanity
check on your cap table (once you get that far), here\'s a good tool to
simulate how ownership will change after various rounds (convertible debt,
angel, vc, etc.):

I\'d love this too! Just a template to make sure we are not leaving anything
out.

EZ Numbers is a good "all in one" template that does a lot of fancy things
for you and guides you through building the model.

Tableau is pretty sweet for data viz.

I use it in a number of ways, including financial modeling/forecasts.
