Why you need to forecast your cash flow
Your business lifeblood is cash flow. With managing cash flow, prevention of cash flow issues is a lot easier than attempting to fix cash flow issues after the event.
Balancing the income (inflow of cash) against the expenditure (outflow of cash) results in a positive cash flow. If you are on top of this, the business will have the required liquid cash to cover the liabilities.
Forecasting the cash flow
By using the cash data from periods prior and then projecting it forward, forecasting will give you a crystal ball to reveal the cash flow health of the future.
By producing cash flow detailed forecasts, it is possible to:
- Understand the operational cash flow into the future – this will help in identifying the projected drops in income, or seasonal dips, and gives you the early warning needed so that you can take action.
- Effectively plan the costs and expenditures – work to strict budgets, look at managing cost and reigning in those expenses – to reduce future outflows.
- Avoiding cash flow issues before they occur – have the information needed to take clear action, plan ahead, and stay in control of the cash status.
