Cash Flows


Understanding cash inflows and outflows is the key to running a successful business. You can use cash flow to easily create a short-term forecast that predicts how and when you expect money to be received and paid out by your business.

Cash Flow Setup 


The program uses a function to automatically calculate the current cash flow of the company. To make sure that the relevant information in the cash flow forecast appears in the correct accounts, you must use the Cash Flow Setup page. You use this page to establish which accounts must be used for the entries in the sales, purchases, service, and fixed assets areas.

To access the Cash Flow Setup:

  • On the navigation pane, click Departments
  • click Financial Management > Cash Flow > Cash Flow Setup
General FastTab
