Company Cash Flow Planner spreadsheet is a spreadsheet to plan more detail about your company cash flow. It fits small business companies who manage their tight cash flow where their expenses rely upon their income monthly. This spreadsheet should complement your cash flow budget spreadsheet. Cash flow budget spreadsheet usually doesn’t have details on exact income and expenses dates. You may see its balance is positive but in reality you have to spend your money before getting paid at the end of particular month.
This company cash flow planner spreadsheet will solve your payment timing issues. You can break your income and expenses down into dates and days. You can put exact invoice and purchase order payment dates as well as other regular expenses, like salaries, office rentals, electricity etc. With exact dates and days, you can push your customers to pay on time or set earlier due dates. You can negotiate payment with your suppliers as well.
This spreadsheet has monthly and weekly cash flow summary in calendar view style. You can set your threshold values to see your company financial situations daily. Also, if your company has weekly positive balance policy, you can organize all of your payment easily.
With recurring dates and days features, you don’t have to type your recurring income and expenses each week or month. You type them once, and the excel formula will help you distribute it to the whole months automatically. To complement that feature, you can put exception dates and days for particular transaction. For example, your customer pay your invoice 3 times within 3 months, you can separate it by typing different dates and amount on particular dates. You can apply it for your company expenses. In addition, you can set it on weekly bases as well. For example, if you have to pay your part time employees weekly, you may put recurring payment days, like Friday and move it earlier if national holiday falls on Friday.
