Flow Projection is an integral part of the financial section of all business
plans, literally describing how cash is projected to flow in and out of a
business. Unlike Cash Flow Statements which are used to explain the previous
actual cash flow, the Cash Flow Projections are used to anticipate the cash to
be generated or expended over a chosen period of time in the future.
Flow Projection is an important tool for cash flow management, as it lets you
know when the expenditures are too high or when the short term investments to
handle cash flow surplus need to be made.
