    I seriously don't understand how a business would use it like for a restaurant or like a clothing shop ?

    Budgeting is just controlling costs vs income at it's heart. It's motivational for management etc too, but this isn't it's basic purpose so we can think about that later.

    You wouldn't want to spend 50k on thousands of items of clothes if you're a tiny store and are only expecting to sell a third of them before the season/fashion changes and you can't sell them any more. You also wouldn't want to pay your staff £100 a day if they're only making £70 for the company in sales.
