Cash Flow & Cash Flow Projection

The Cash Flow statement summarises the transactions that have a direct impact on cash. It records the inflow and outflow of cash during a particular period, and thereby, you can track any changes in the position of cash. Unlike the Cash Flow, which records the previous flow of cash, the Cash Flow Projection is used to anticipate the cash to be generated or spent in the future.

A Cash Flow statement can also be used as a Receipts and Payments statement. This is useful for institutions such as non-profit organizations where a Receipts and Payments statement needs to be generated. You can also view the Cash Flow reports in the browser.
