    In layman's term, first the meaning of budget: is a plan in monetary terms. Second, the meaning of unified: the act of making many similar activities into one.

    A unified budget, therefore, in a business sense; is a summary of all the budgets coming from various departments of a business organization. The departmental budgets prepared for production, finance, marketing, etc., are put together in one document for easier appreciation, interpretation and analysis.
