Cash Flow Forecasting

Cash Flow Statement 

What is a Cash Flow Statement?

A Cash Flow Statement is a financial statement showing how cash flows in and out of a company over a specific period of time.

It tells you how cash moves in and out of a company's accounts via three main channels:

  1. Operating activities: Often termed operating cash flow. This is the amount of cash left over after all the cash income and cash expenses for the core operations are received and paid for.
  2. Investing activities: This part lists cash used to buy and sell investments and long-term assets. It includes capital expenditures.
  3. Financing activities: This part shows cash flows to and from owners, investors, and creditors. It includes changes in debt and equity, as well as dividends and share buybacks.

Benefits of a Cash Flow Statement

Cash flow is crucial for companies of all sizes. Whether you are a start up business, or are looking to expand and grow, it is important to know whether you will be able to meet all of your financial obligations and goals.

Other benefits include:

  • It helps you keep track of spending to meet specific, short-term goals.
  • It helps to support smart decision making
  • Helps a business gain a better understanding of where you’re spending your money and highlights non-essential expenditures
  • Gives you peace of mind that bills can be paid on time
  • Growth and expansion requires cash to fund additional expenditures such as inventory and employees.
  • Managing the cash flow will help business’ plan the right time to start this expansion.

Cash Flow Forecasting 

What is a Cash Flow Forecasting?

Cash flow forecasting is the process of estimating the flow of cash in and out of a business over a future period of time.

How does Cash Flow Forecasting differ from a Cash Flow Statement?

While Cash Flow Statements show actual finalised accounts for the previous year, a Cash Flow Forecast is a financial planning estimate that deals with a future period of time.

What does a Cash Flow Forecast compromise of?

  1. Future time frame you would like to forecast for i.e.. one month/one quarter ahead/one year
  2. Projected income over that time period
  3. Projected outgoings over that time period

Benefits of a Cash Flow Forecasting

Cash flow forecasting is important because it enables businesses to make informed strategic decisions by having a picture of what their cash position might look like in the future.

Other benefits include:

  • It will help you evaluate the expenditures that you can reduce.
  • Forecasting allows you to spot cash gaps before they hit your business.
  • One of the biggest problems businesses face is credit control, especially when customers and clients pay late. A cash flow forecast can help you identify late payers and take corrective action.
  • Another challenge businesses face, is settling liabilities on time, such as supplier payments or payment of taxes. A cash flow forecast can assist you with managing your future ongoings.
  • A cash flow forecast will allow you to evaluate your business’ plans and come to a decision as to whether they are feasible.
