Profit & Loss and Cash Flow Tracking (Weekly, Monthly, Annually) Template

Tracking profit and loss as well as cash position in real-time. Includes automated graph/visual updates.

The purpose of this template is to show real-time profit and loss effects of your business activity on a weekly, monthly and year-to-date way. The way it works is pretty straight forward. You have a 'database' style tab where you enter the date, transaction code, and $ amount. 

Based on that, a profit and loss summary will populate that has up to:
1. Four different income streams
2. Forty-five expense categories
3. Five slots for other cash flow items (in and out).

Additional rows will show your running cash flow each week/month/year and running cash position.

The weekly and monthly reporting tabs show up to a 2-year period and the annual tab shows up to 5 years.

The reason this was built in google sheets is primarily for the charting functionality. I have put formulas in for the date at each week/month/year so it auto updates as you move forward in time automatically. That means the graph will only show data for up to the current week/month/year and will only move forward as you actually move forward in time.

What that means is better graphic display. You don't have to keep re-adjusting the chart ranges as you fill in your financial information. It is a huge plus.

Please read the instructions in the file before you try to use the financial reporting template. Be sure to clear out the sample data as well.
