Cash Flow

Cash flow refers to the movement of money in and out of a business over a period of time. In simple financial terms cash flows equals cash receipts less cash payments.

Financing, operating and investing activities are examples of cash inflows, whereas expenses and investments are examples of cash outflows (investments can be examples of both inflows and outflows of cash).
