Managing cash flow is one of the most important aspects of business. In the planning phase, you can radically change your cash outlook by adjusting a few basic assumptions about when you pay and get paid.
The Business Planning tool allows you to adjust your cash flow projections with a series of controls: adjust what percentage of your sales and purchases are on credit, set the average payment delay for accounts receivable and payable, and choose whether to turn on automated inventory handling based on your forecasted sales.
