After the initial set up of your cash flow projection, it is important to
review the information frequently. By doing so, you will have a projection that
is more accurate and useful.
The Cash Flow Projector updates itself using your current QuickBooks
information. However, any entries, changes, and/or adjustments you made during
the initial set up of your cash flow projector will require periodic reviews
for accuracy. For example, if you are projecting cash receipts manually, you
must enter new entries for each new week.
Reviewing adjustments made to the beginning balance. Adjustments made in
this step are remembered until deleted or changed.
Changing your cash receipts projection method to see if another method gives
you more useful information.
Adjusting information to reflect seasonal patterns in your business.
Adding, editing, or deleting memorized expense transactions as needed, such
as deleting a loan payment transaction when the loan has been paid in full.
Adding, editing, or deleting adjustments made to cash receipts and business
expenses. The adjustments are dated, however, you may find they are no longer
needed or amounts have changed for the period you are viewing.
Reviewing adjustments made to accounts payable. Once you enter any bills you
adjusted for in QuickBooks, you should delete any adjustments you made in the
Cash Flow Projector. If you don't change the adjustment, the amount could
be subtracted twice.
