Business Cash Flow Analysis
What it is and why it’s important to small business owners.
Cash Flow Analysis is an examination of a company’s incoming and outgoing cash during a specific period and is often used for financial reporting purposes. The analysis begins with a starting balance and generates an ending balance after accounting for all cash receipts and paid expenses during the period.

How it is Used
Cash Flow Analysis is most commonly used to evaluate how exactly a company is earning and spending money. It is also used to assess individual branches of large companies by looking at how much excess cash they produce.
Cash Flow Analysis can be found in a company’s Cash Flow Statement. Cash Flow Statements detail incoming and outgoing cash resulting from a company’s various investing, financing and operational activities.
