Finance What is included in the December 31 cash position?

The Finance area’s December 31 Cash Position includes all of your projected cash inflows and outflows this year. This includes (as an outflow) current debt that’s due this year.

The December 31 Cash Position also displays as the proforma balance sheet’s Cash Position. Cash reflects the amount left after all company payments are subtracted from the sum of:

  • Total sales revenue reported on the proforma income statement (see below);
  • Stock, current debt and long term debt entries on the Finance spreadsheet.

Forecasts are used by the proformas to calculate financial projections (see Proformas & Annual Reports in the Guide section). If you enter a forecast that is unrealistically high, the proformas will take that forecast and project unrealistic revenue (see 10 Forecasting in the Guide section).
