Knowing how much money is flowing in and out of your business during a specific period is necessary for accurate decision making and planning. It shows your projected balances based on income and expenditure across all areas of your business over a given time period. Whether you have a small or medium business, you need to be thinking about forecasting cash flow for the future and preparing yourself for periods where your sales might be lower than usual or your costs for manufacturing or purchasing higher. With Long + Cowan’s cash flow forecasting services, you will never find yourself in a challenging financial position!
