I like to think of the assumptions as the starting point of the financial
statements. If you start with the basic assumption that you will charge this
amount for your product or service; and you will sell this much per
day/week/month/year; you can then project your potential sales, income,
profit, when you factor in expenses and cost of doing business (in your other
financial reports).
Then you can create analysis such as what BizReacher suggests.
I show examples below.

Assumptions are the reasons for the information you placed in your
spreadsheet. For instance, the numbers may be based on the assumption that
business will increase 5% per year but expenses will increase only 3% per
year. Knowing how you arrived at the numbers you used will enable you to make
future changes based on the realities of the market. Perhaps you will
discover over time that your business increases 6% per year and expenses
increase only 3%. You can adjust the numbers accordingly.
