In its day-to-day life, a company needs organization, not only in operations, but also in cash flow, which basically becomes an analysis of the balance available, for a correct and adequate balance of how much capital the company has, where they went resources are allocated and for what purpose. So that, regardless of the size of the business, the entrepreneur has a complete picture of the company's financial health.

·     Log entries and exits: it doesn't matter if the record is in sophisticated software or a simple cash flow spreadsheet. The important thing is to record everything possible, including Small expenses that are often overlooked. Fixed accounts and installments should also be considered, this will help with the cash flow projection for the coming months;
