Cash flow are the funds that are used to manage day to day operations of a company. These are the funds that are flowing in and out of your company in a month.
Companies can increase cash flow from operations by improving the efficiency at which they manage their current assets and liabilities.
Cash is important because it later becomes payment for things that make your business run: expenses like stock or raw materials, employees, rent and other operating expenses. Naturally, positive cash flow is preferred.
The cash flow statement identifies the cash that is flowing in and out of the company.
Because the cash flow statement only counts liquid assets, it makes adjustments to operating income in order to arrive at the operating income that flows in as cash and cash equivalents.
The cash flow analysis is an examination of a company’s cash inflows and outflows during a specific period and is used for financial reporting purposes.
A company can have positive cash flow while having no profit if the cash comes from sources other than income.
