What Is Cash Flow Analysis?
Cash flow analysis means analyzing both the inflows and outflows of the cash in a business. But it’s not that simple as we may make it sound. In fact, you will never have to worry about understanding the complexity of this analysis if you consider getting it done from us. However, moving forward with the definition, there are basically three components that matter the most.
Cash flow from business operations
Financing Cash flow
Cash flow from investment
In simple words, your company’s cash flow can be defined as the apparent numbers on the cash flow statements. Read on to find out the importance of cash flow analysis for your business.
Importance Of Cash Flow Analysis
The importance of cash flow analysis can be better understood once the two types of accounting that are used, are put into context. And those two types of accounting are:
Accrual accounting, as the name suggests, is when income is recorded as soon as the revenues are made. And when it comes to recording the expenses, they are also recorded as soon as they are ‘accrued’. This form of accounting does not wait for the actual payment or the receiving of the cash. When a payment is accrued, it is recorded.
On the other hand, cash accounting directly considers the actual receiving and payment of the cash. An income would only be recorded when the cash is received and so on.
This is where the cash flow analysis comes into play. It has a very basic and vital role in both types of accounting. When you know what your company has to pay and what it has to receive in black and white, it’s easier to keep the focus where it should be.

CASH FLOW ANALYSIS IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT ITS 3 STATEMENTS
Cash flow statements are broken into 3 categories, as listed above.
Operational Cash Flow
Cash flow from operations or operational cash flow refers to the transactions that are on an accrual basis. The sections or components that are considered in operational cash flow involve, accounts payable, accounts receivable, income taxes payable, and variations in current assets and current liabilities. For example, if a customer makes a payment, it will go into the cash flow from operations. Similarly, when you make a tax payment, the bookkeeper will record it as operating cash flow – keeping the business operations running while including the cash is all it takes into account.
Investment Cash Flow
Anything in the business that has to do anything with the long-term investment, goes into cash flow from the investment. It can be your long-term investment in the fixed assets such as buildings, equipment, vehicles, etc. These are capital expenditures and thus revolve around cash outflows. But it doesn’t mean that the inflows are not considered in investment cash flow. It is when the revenue begins to generate from those fixed assets in any form, then it is also included in the investment cash flow.
Financing Cash Flow
When you are considering to acquire an investor, this category of cash flow is what may come in handy. Generally, the recorded transactions under financing cash flow are debt and equity transactions. Also, when you receive the cash after successfully getting loan approval, it goes into financing cash flow. It also deals with dividends payments, bonds, or sale/purchase of the company stocks. Overall, when an investor takes interest in a dividend-paying firm, they can simply check out your financing cash flow.
