CASH FLOW MANAGEMENT
Cash flow forecasting is a key element of the financial planning process, it enables you to predict peaks and troughs in your cash balance. It helps you to plan how much

service illustrates your inflows and outflows in a clear format.

Where you need to make savings or adjustments, and how
Whether you can afford new investments
Potential consequences of specific investment decisions
