The Business Expenses page displays the payment details for the cash
payments you will make during the projection period.
What's the difference between business expenses and
Accounts Payable are bills you enter and track in
Business Expenses are any payments you don't track as
bills through QuickBooks. Any payments you make in QuickBooks that aren't
tracked as bills, such as loans, payroll, and some expenses that you track as
memorized transactions should be entered in the Cash Flow Projector as business
Once you enter the details of your business expenses, the Cash Flow
Projector retains these details until you change or delete them.
Because the projection is a summary of cash activity, you may want to
include only the most significant expenses your business incurs, including
loans, notes, payroll expenses, etc.
Note: If you have created Memorized Transactions in
QuickBooks—and the memorized transaction isn't part of your accounts
payable—you'll need to manually enter this information in the Cash
Flow Projector. Add the expense and the frequency one time; the information
will remain in the Cash Flow Projector.
Once you've entered all your business expenses, you'll see the total
in the Business Expenses Summary section. Use the Adjustment fields to enter
any adjustments to total expenses.

If you know you have outgoing cash that is not included in your detailed
business expenses, make appropriate entries in the Adjustment fields of the
Business Expenses Summary.
Note: All adjustment entries in Business Expenses are date
