How to Make a Cash Flow Forecast for Your Business

Why a Cash Flow Forecast is Essential

Creating a cash flow forecast helps you track your business’s money coming in and going out. It’s a vital tool for monitoring your financial health throughout the year. Break down your budget into three main areas: everyday operations, investment income, and financing.

Easy Steps to Create Your Forecast

Wondering how to start? At ACE, we simplify it for you. Just add up all the cash you expect to receive and all the payments you’ll need to make. This gives you a clear picture of your future cash position and flow, crucial for making informed financial plans. It’s not just good for you; banks and investors will appreciate it too.

When Will I Need a Cash Flow Forecast?

  • Thinking about buying a new company car but worried about future cash?
