Cash Flow Forecast Spreadsheet

The flexible Cash Flow Forecast spreadsheet forecasts your cash flow into the future, so you can project various income/expense scenarios over time.

About the Cash Flow Forecast Spreadsheet

This sheet looks at the long-term picture. Think years, not months. If you are looking for something that looks at the more immediate future, consider the Projected Balances sheet.

Some of the benefits of using this sheet include:

  • Easy to set up
  • Baselines your cashflow with the current-year budget (other ranges can be used)
  • Outputs both chart and tabular data
  • Provides workspace to manually add life events (e.g. children going to college, retirement, etc) with starting/ending years, starting amounts, and growth rates
  • Life events can be activated/deactivated to run scenarios and quickly see long-term impacts
  • Ability to set growth rates for your core income/expenses and life events

    On Feb 22, 2021, the Cash Flow Forecast template was updated to Version 0.92 to fix an issue with multiple category overrides to Life Events that matched an existing category name.
