Cash flow templates.

It’s time to talk numbers. Having a cash flow statement can help you ensure you are always on track with your financials. Use the templates below to help you plan and forecast your business costs, expenses, and sales.

A complete cash flow statement will tell you how much money you need, how you arrived at that number, what purchases will be made, and how you will earn back borrowed monies with sales revenue.

If your business is asking for funding, how much you ask for should be supported by the total of your start-up costs (everything you need to spend before you open the doors) plus any operating costs for the first few months, until sales start coming in (enough to cover your ongoing expenses). Have questions? We’re here to help.

The numbers you talk about here will help with your financial projections, giving you an idea of costs and the viability of your business. You need to show that cash you receive through sales, investment, or financing will cover expenses throughout the coming months.
