13 Week Cash Forecast Excel Model Example

This 13 Week Cash Forecast Tool is the first step to getting your cash flow under control.

This 13 Week Cash Forecast Tool is the first step to getting your cash flow under control. It offers an easy format to develop a cash forecasting methodology that will work for your business. It will challenge professionally trained accountants - it ignores, in fact, it despises, accrual accounting.

What are weekly cash flow forecasts?

• Weekly cash forecasts are used to project a company’s liquidity over the medium term, estimating the timing and amounts of cash inflows and outflows.

• Companies big and small, early and mature, should utilize this tool. The weekly cash flow forecast can even be tailored to businesses in all industries and with varying business models.

• Breaking the business down on a weekly basis captures the granular movements that can be overlooked if using a month, quarterly, or yearly interval.

• The optimal forecasting period is 13 weeks, the total weeks in a fiscal quarter. The optimal time period should extend far enough into the future to give your team time to react, but not so far out that the degree of certainty becomes nil.
