Cash Flow Forecasting
Cash flow is the lifeblood of the company. It is what pays the bills and payroll. Every business has its ups and downs so knowing your cash flow is key to managing the business. Seeing your cash flow next week or next month allows you to better plan for your business. Most importantly, this gives the business enough lead time to be able to make changes or obtain financing when cash gets low.

Although it is stressful to see when cash may run out it is vitally important information so you can make the necessary corrections to stay afloat. On the positive side you can see your cash position grow and know you can confidentially hire that next employee or purchase that piece of equipment.
