Daily Cash Report

Daily Cash Report

daily cash reportWhen we start a consulting engagement with a new client, one of the first tools we implement is the Daily Cash Report.  While the concept is simple, the results can be very powerful.

Daily Cash Report Definition

So what is a daily cash report?  It’s basically a detail of today’s cash position and a look forward at upcoming cash inflows and outflows.  It allows you to know not only the cash you have on hand today. But it also allows you to know what you’re going to need over the next week or so.  This report provides visibility for all aspects of the cash cycle. This includes receivables, payables, and the treasury function. As a result, better decisions can be made regarding organizational cash flow.
