Cash Flow and Forecasting Services
Cash flow forecasting, or cash forecasting, lets you know how much cash is coming in and out of your business across all areas over a certain period of time. A short-term forecast might cover the next 30 days, while a long-term forecast looks five or ten years into the future. Depending on the nature of your business, one or the other may be more accurate for you. Whatever your needs are, we have a skilled team to help you with your cash flow forecast.
Why do you need a cash flow forecast?
Knowing and understanding your cash position is essential for any business, helping you prepare for the future and make more informed decisions. A cash flow forecast allows you to see whether more cash is coming into the business than going out (a positive cash flow) or if more cash is going out than coming in (a negative cash flow). You can then make financial adjustments if needed.
Having this information at hand also means you can minimise the cash buffer needed for unforeseen expenses and make the most of your company’s excess cash. And most importantly, it helps you avoid cash shortages that can damage and, in worst cases, ruin your business.
The bottom line is – knowing when to expand and when to cut back is fundamental for having a successful business.
