Here are a few tips that can help you prepare for cash flow projection:
Utilize realistic assumptions
A big part of forecasting is utilizing realistic assumptions. These assumptions help forecast what your cash inflows and outflows will look like and consist of. If you have history to base some assumptions off, that could lead to more accurate forecasting. Sometimes, there is no history, so the assumptions should be conservative and as realistic as possible to ensure the forecast is useful and will somewhat reflect real-life.
Utilize an easy to change or update system
The simplest and commonly used tool in my cash forecasting is the use of a spreadsheet. There are other forecasting tools out there that you can use for a fee however, I can prepare and provide a spreadsheet template that you can then utilize going forward with a small amount of training.
