Cash flow forecast report

How do I create this report?

To do this task

  1. Go to the Reports menu, choose Company & Financial.

  2. Click Cash Flow Forecast.

What this report tells you

This report helps you forecast how much cash you'll have by projecting your cash inflows, cash disbursements, and bank account balances on a week by week basis.

To see a list of the transactions that make up an amount, double-click the amount.

Columns

Accnts Receivable

Shows the customer payments you expect to receive, based on the payment terms you recorded for each customer. The beginning balance is the amount of past due customer payments as of the day before the report start date.

Accnts Payable

Shows the bills you expect to pay, based on the payment terms you recorded for each vendor. The beginning balance is the amount of past due bills as of the day before the report start date.

Bank Accnts

Shows the expected changes to your bank account balances based on payments and deposits postdated after the report start date. The beginning balance is the sum of the balances in all your bank accounts as of the day before the report start date.

Net Inflows

Shows your projected net cash inflow for each week. QuickBooks calculates net inflow from the amounts in the Accnts Receivable, Accnts Payable, and Bank Accnts columns.

Projected Balance

Shows the balance of all bank accounts if all unpaid invoices and bills were paid on time.

Change the report

Date range

The report shows projected cash flow for the next four weeks. To change the forecast period, click the Dates drop-down list and choose a different date range.

Forecasting periods

By default, the report forecasts cash flow on a week by week basis.

To change the period to days, months, or another preset interval, click the Periods drop-down list and choose the interval.

Delay receipts for late customer payments

By default, the accounts receivable forecast assumes that all customers will pay their open balances on time.

To see how your cash inflows from accounts receivable will be affected if your customers are late with their payments, enter the number of days by which payments will be delayed in the Delay Receipts field.
