Banking > Analysing your cash flow
You can use the Cash Flow Worksheet window to estimate your short-term cash needs. This window allows you to use the information you’ve entered to create a forecast of your bank account or your credit card account.
You can change, add and delete information that appears in the Cash Flow Worksheet window to better estimate your cash flow needs.
Changes, deletions and additions you make in the list are used for the purposes of the Cash Flow Worksheet window only. The changes you make here won’t be reflected anywhere else in your company file.
The information used to forecast cash needs includes:
paycheques, chequebook and general journal recurring transactions that are expected to be recorded as actual transactions within the specified range of days or were scheduled to be recorded as actual transactions before the current date.
The frequency that was established in the Edit Recurring Schedule window for each recurring transaction is used to determine the date when the transaction should occur.
The information used to forecast cash needs does not include sales and purchases recurring transactions.
