Cash Flow


The Cash Flow tool is a spreadsheet designed to prepare a monthly cash flow projection for the business. Cash flow projections are a best guess as to how cash will flow into and out of the business during the accounting period. Categorizing cash inflows and outflows helps determine whether the business is capable of meeting cash flow requirements or if additional inflows are needed.

The Cash Flow tool produces a Cash Flow Statement that can be used to identify fund sources and how funds flow between the farm and family operations. The Cash Flow Statement helps lenders evaluate the risks of extending credit.
