Cash Flow Worksheet Excel
The Cash Flow Statement is the most critical planning tool for a new or growing
business. Use this worksheet as a template to estimate/ project income and
expenses for the first 3 years. Formulas have been set to auto-calculate, and you can easily add-in or delete line item descriptions to reflect your unique plan.
Income Statement & Balance Sheet Excel
This is a 2-in-1 worksheet. As with the Cash Flow Worksheet above, formulas
are set to auto-calculate, and you can easily add-in or delete line items to reflect
your unique plan.
The Income Statement determines profit and losses of your business.
The Balance Sheet measures the solvency of your business and degree of your investment.
Keep in mind, you may not have applicable data to fill in some columns of the
Financial Statements, and some items listed may not apply to your situation, so we recommend you add or delete descriptions as they apply to your unique business plan.
Note: After saving and opening the Excel files, be sure to click the 'maximize' button (top right corner) to view all pages in the worksheets.
