Cash Flow Forecasting In Your Native NetSuite Environment

By taking as much existing information about NetSuite debtors, creditors, banks and sales/purchase transactions as is available, and then by adding rolling calendars and future "flow forecast" transactions Liquidity Manager is able to give dynamic and accurate forecasts of your future bank balances and income/expenditure profiles. And that's all within your familiar NetSuite accounting environment. 

  • Fully Integrated  -there's no need to rekey any data.
  • Automated -calendars are rolled over automatically each day, each week and each month.
  • Instantaneous  -updates are made in 'real time' and are consolidated into new forecasts every night.
  • Forecasts -are based on the previous nights closing bank balances in the NetSuite GL, and the open invoices in the Accounts Receivables/Accounts Payable ledgers.
  • Customer and Vendor Payments -are automatically recorded to give seamless amalgamation of actuals and forecasts during each week, month, quarter and year, as time moves on through each period.

    Key Benefits

    • Short Term Planning
    Liquidity Manager is self-populating from customer and vendor transactions which are seamlessly merged with flow forecasts for repeating income, standing charges, loans, capital costs and operating costs. 
    All this data is available instantly - on a single click - for the next 7 days by day, and the next 13 weeks by week in easy to understand views.

    NetSuite Based Development

    Because Liquidity Manager is developed using standard NetSuite development tools it means that:

    • The user interface is the same and there's no need for any extra staff training
    • The group structure you have adopted in NetSuite is the same when working in Liquidity Manager
    • Banks and currencies used are the same
    • Analysis grouping is the same
    • Date formatting is the same
    • Security is the same including specific roles for Liquidity Managers
    • Customisation possibilities and methods are the same
    • There's no need for any API processes with other software brands 

    Accounting Structure / Profitability Forecasts

    Income & Expenditure is reported at the "classic" accounting levels of Income; Gross Margin; Operating Costs; Financial Costs; Taxation; Net Profits; and Capital Flow. 

    A lower level "flow account" coding system is available and reflects the GL account code structure in NetSuite.

    At the lowest level - "Forecast Entries" are the equivalent of GL Entries that are also editable as circumstances change.

    Making Flow Stream Forecasts

    Flow Stream Forecasts are made using templates. Each one of these represents a type of income, type of cost or capital flow. Each element of a flow stream can have different dates and values.

    Flow Stream Forecasts can also generate associated cost of sale provisions including agents commission, shipment or installation costs, raw material supply costs, sales expenses, landed costs, and sales taxes. Provisions are automatically created for payment by the correct bank on their due date

    Forecasts  can be entered as far into the future as you want and can be entered in periodic cycles by day, week, fortnight, month, quarter or in yearly intervals. 

    As circumstances change, individual flow streams can be edited and updated to reflect your latest views or the latest views of line managers.

    Inbuilt Accuracy

    All forecasts are based on the latest bank statement closing balance - which liquidity managers have to input on a regular basis (such as daily, weekly or monthly).

    The first few days of a forecast are based on open transactions in the NetSuite ledgers and then finally the system seamlessly reverts to flow forecasts for the remaining periods.

    All the forecast generating data used is held in a single table, where each entry is given both a due and forecast clearing date. Forecast clearing dates for transactions are based on the average days to pay by customer or vendor. Due dates are as specified on the transaction.

    Dimension Analysis

    Revenue based accounting tends to be most used by government organisations throughout the world. It is a form of accounting that's very easy to understand and with the added advantage that periodic accounts can be produced quickly and accurately.

    As with NetSuite historical records, analysis can be done using filters and searches across many headings. The system allows you to predict, monitor and analyse by flow stream, by sales group, sales channel, subsidiary, division, project, territory, salesman, partner and business class, all in combination with one another.
