Projecting Your Cash Flow Calculator

Projecting small buisness Cash Flow Calculator

Being a small business owner comes with ups and downs as sales ebb and flow.

Having enough cash flow to sustain through leaner months is key to keeping the doors open. Using a cash flow calculator, you can find the right combination of payment terms, cost of your goods, profit margin, and other factors that can put your business in the black.


A business owner can forecast their cash flow with data from a few months of sales and expenses. If you know your average sales for a month, credit terms, and monthly growth, you can begin to put together a picture of your business’s financial health. Remember, however, that your inventory and receivables not yet collected can’t help your cash flow. You may find it helpful to reduce your inventory or lower the number of sales on credit if you need more cash flow to cover another expense or a slow month of sales.
