Cash flow forecasts

Cash is the lifeblood of a business, and a good business will need to plan its cash flow for a number of reasons. Primarily the business will need to know if it can continue to operate with the funds it has available in the medium term, and will need to have as early a warning as possible if it needs to raise more funds.

Typically, cash flow may be raised from bank loans, the business owner injecting money or invoice discounting. It will also be important to make sure assets bought and used in the business are funded over their useful life to preserve the cash in the business, and to take advantage of any tax breaks or allowances.

We can help you to prepare a cash flow forecast, usually for between three months to five years, and can work out a forecast for your income tax, corporation tax and VAT payments.
