Understand business expenses in the Cash Flow Projector

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?

Accounts Payable are bills you enter and track in QuickBooks.

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 expenses.

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.

Why should I make adjustments?

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 specific.
