Cashflow

Can someone help me please.
I am trying to work out the opening balance on a Cashflow Forecast.

Do i add Share Capital, Grants and Overdraft and then deducted any fixed overheads etc?

    Hello

    Before you do your cash flow statement you need to do a cash flow reconcilation unless its already given. But the end figure from your reconcilation you will be your opening figure on your cash flow statement.

    Hope this helps

    All it say is start of business share capital was £***, recevied grants £*** and overdraft facility of £***.

    Start of business bought Fixures at £***.

    Then it just give you the fixed overheads cost and sales and purchases figures.

    Have a look at the information Visha has given me in an earlier thread with the heading 'cashflow statement - HELP'

    I have found it very useful.

    Some tips our tutor gave us were:-

    O I F (pronounced - Oh Fe)
    O - Operating Activities
    - which includes
    Profit from operations before tax and Interest paid
    Loss or Profit from Disposal of assets
    Depreciation
    Also included in this section is RIPIT - not in order but helps you to remember what goes next
    I - Inventories
    R - Trade Receivables
    P - Trade Payables
    I - Interest paid
    T - Tax

    I - Investing Activities
    This section is the proceeds from Sale of assets and Purchase of Assets

    F - Financing Activities
    This section Share Capital, Share premium capital, Non current liabilities -
    (check Vishas notes as i may have left something off)

    Hope this helps
