An introduction to Brixx components 

What is a component? 

All businesses are different, but when it comes to financial forecasting, they will all use the same building components

The components of every business can be broken down into Income, Expenditure, Assets and Finance. In Brixx, you build plans from components that cover each of these categories.



  • An Income Component could be named T-Shirts to represent something you are selling.
  • An Operational Cost Component could be named Phone bills to represent a business overhead.
  • An Asset Component could be named Delivery Van to represent a vehicle the business owns.
  • A Loan Component could be named Startup loan to represent the funding used to start the business.

Types of components in Brixx

Forecast your expected income for a particular product or service. Alternatively, you can set it to 'Income per unit' allowing you to calculate a unit price and forecast your unit volume.

Used for: All sources of income, from the products you sell or the services you provide.


The subscription component allows you to model recurring income. It allows you to set up a subscription period and a growing amount of customers on that subscription. You also have options around customer churn and cancellations.

Used for: Subscription products like SAAS businesses or any product or service sold on a recurring basis.


Cost of sales is designed to calculate costs that are directly related to your income. These components base their calculation (either percentage or cost per unit) off of your income forecast. 

Group cost of sales can be added to a Group to calculate off of multiple income components at once. You can also add a Cost of sales that just looks at one Income component in a group. You can add this by clicking 'Add cost of sales' inside the income component.
