This section represents your company’s cash flow statement which includes past transactions imported by you (via bank connection or manually) and the forecasts for the next period. You can visualize all the money movements that took place in the time range for which you have added transactions.
If you need to, you can monitor your cash flow plan by cash flow activities (operating, investing, and financing).
In addition to the chart that represents the fluctuations of your cash flow, you also have access to the table of monthly transactions, distributed on your personalised category structure.
Here are some terms you will encounter in the Cash flow section
Starting balance - The balance of all your accounts at the beginning of the period for which you have entered data or the amount from which you started.
Net result - The difference between all your cash-ins and cash-outs for each selected time sequence.
Transfers - Special section for the transfers between the company's own accounts. They may or may not be isolated in your cash flow. Read more about transfers.
Opened accounts - The initial balance of your accounts when firstly imported or manually added in ThinkOut.
Final balance - The balance of all your accounts at the end of the calculus period. It is equal to the balance of your bank accounts and possibly cash. Or, simpler put: Starting balance + Net result = Final balance. Don't forget to refresh your bank connection to import the latest transactions and the correct balance from your bank.
The cash flow statement from ThinkOut helps you to identify your cash fluctuations over time and quickly see if there is a possibility of cash flow problems in the future. If your chart starts to turn red then your cash is below 0 and you have to take action.
