Cash Flow Questions

What is cash flow?

Cash flow is generally referred to the movement of money into or out of a business, project, or any type of finical product. Cash flow is generally measured during a certain period of time and can be used to calculate other things within a company that gives information on the company’s value and situation. Cash flow helps the company to see where goods are need, how the company is working, and may other factors. If the company has a negative cash flow, then they would need to look into all aspects of the company to find where the bad cash flow is. When having doubts about cash flow contact the thousands of available Experts.

Are employee health care insurance premiums considered as a non-operational expense in determining discretionary cash flow?

Case Details: The premiums are paid for by the employer 

When it comes to the health care insurance for the employees, then this should be considered an operational expense due to the fact that this expense would be part of the company’s overall operating profit. If the person is buying the business, then they should look at the cash flow of the previous owner to see how the cash flow works.

What is the difference between net cash flow and accounting profit?

When a person or company is talking about cash flow, then they are generally talking about the movement of cash through the business. The accounting profit of a company is where a company’s total earnings and include the cost of doing business.

What are the reasons for a negative cash flow balance in a company?

When it comes to negative cash flow, there can be many reasons why the cash flow is negative. If a company spends more than what it receives during a set period of time, then the company is considered to have a negative cash flow. Negative cash flow can also be improper inventory planning, which is when the company buys more inventory than they sell. Another thing that can put the company into negative cash flow is high account receivables, which is where even if the company is making a profit, it may have a high sell of items on credit. Another factor that may help make a negative cash flow is over investing. Over investing is when a company purchases non-priority items or investments.

Which is better for cash flow, a capital lease or ordinary lease?

When it comes to account the differences for capital or operating leases, then the cash that is paid for an operating lease will show up as outflow cash. Capital leases also ask for a higher rate, whereas an ordinary lease would not. Ordinary leases generally do not show up in the cash flow of the company, making it a suitable choice for many companies.

Cash flow in a company helps the company to see where their money is being spent. When it comes to cash flow and companies, the person may have questions regarding how to locate cash flow, how cash flow affects the person or company, or how to determine if the cash flow is negative or positive. When the questions arise, then the person would need to seek out the answers from an Expert.

Recent Cash Flow Questions

  • I want to have a malpractice attorney look at the errors my

    I want to have a malpractice attorney look at the errors my present attorney made in the case I discussed with you previously. Initially they told me they didn't want to appeal but when they saw I entered a Motion for Extension of Time they put in a Notice of Appeal the very same day. So now they decided to take on the appeal so they are still representing me. (If you remember, they were trying to get me to agree to not appeal in exchange for the defense not pursuing court costs against me.)
    At what point does the statute of limitations begin tolling for prior malpractice? In other words should I wait till this is all over before pursuing a malpractice case?
    Will allowing them to handle the appeal diminish a malpractice case against them? (Although I don't have much of a choice. No one will take it on a contingency basis)
  • Hello. I am writing today regarding a tax question. I was

    Hello. I am writing today regarding a tax question. I was out of work on workers compensation for almost seven months this year. At different times, my disability rating varied from 50% to 100%. Because I am a state employee, I was paid my regular wages
    through my work payroll during that time period, and therefore, regular federal and state taxes were taken out. According to my worker's comp booklet, the benefits I would have received had I been receiving checks from worker's comp directly are NON-taxable.
    At the top of my most recent pay stub, there is a box that states "Worker's Comp Excluded", which lists an amount of $4200. What does this mean?
  • I've heard that it's possible to use the money in my 401k to

    I've heard that it's possible to use the money in my 401k to purchase a business without having to withdraw the money, pay income tax, or pay a 10% penalty. Supposedly, I would create a corporation, set up a 401k plan in the new corporation, and transfer
    my 401k money into the new plan. The new company would then have the funds available to buy a business, and I'm the CEO of the new corporation. Does this sound legit? Other than paying the accountants and lawyers to set this up, what other costs or fees could
    there be? What would be the downside to this? What questions should I ask if I move forward with this?
