If whe have regular inflows and outflows that will be very good for our business because that would mean that we can plan better for our future cash flow. Task 2 c Down 2 u will be affected if the inflows and outflows are irregular because we will not know how much we would receive for the month and we will not be able to plan for our income for the next comin month. And it can also put our business in debits because if we dont make any profit or dont have our breakeven then we will not be able to pay for our stock and other payments that we have to pay every month.

Conclusion

Cash flow also allows us to know if we are able to invest on our business. Managment of these factors will help us to be able to plan and predict future cost so that we can be able to manage our costs during the months that we are not selling much. For example * Seasonal Variation if we are able to manage on the month we dont have a lot of customers then we will be able to plan and predict future inflow and outflows, we can do that if we are not spending too much during the season we always not have enaugh customer for example in march and april. * Late credit payment if we are able to manage this problem then we will be able to invest our money on our business because of we manage late credit payment then we will know that we will receive regular payment every month * Capital expenditure if we are ablte to manage this by making sure that we invest in things that will bring us money. ?? ?? ?? ??
