  • Should we upgrade our equipment?
  • What happens if we win or lose this project?
  • How will this unexpected bill affect our payroll?
  • When will we run out of cash?

Simply toggle each scenario or project on or off with a click to build visual forecasts that reflect a range of potential cash flow outcomes.

Establish the true cost of hiring, with templates to quickly model what bringing on a new employee costs.

Forecast Confidence indicates how much you can rely on each forecast.

You can ditch your spreadsheets and save countless hours each week.

It only takes minutes to generate clear and credible visual forecasts that will help you make confident and sustainable business decisions.

Float Cashflow Forecasting + Xero

Float imports your Xero transactions and helps you build business scenarios as ‘visual forecasts’ - which gives you a firm grasp on your present and future cash flow.

Understand your cash position. Add your cash flow expectations or use Float’s auto-suggestions. Track your predictions against reality as actual bills, invoices, and transactions are added.

Use Forecast Confidence to know when to make big decisions. Your ‘Forecast Confidence’ score tells you when to make decisions or when you need to refine. It analyzes Xero transactions in your cash flow and gives you a glanceable confidence score.

Prepare for every business event with Scenarios. Use Scenarios to see the impact of your strategic decisions. Toggle scenarios on and off and visualise how moving offices or reducing costs affects your cash.

Use New Hires to work out how much that new employee truly costs the business, with pre-baked templates for multiple countries.

Use Projects to explore their impact. Capture individual project income and visualise the cash flow of each project and explore the overall impact of project income and costs.

Track your company ‘end date’. Set a cash reserve limit and track the date you'll hit it. Use your ‘end date’ to gauge the impact, risk and business sustainability of each scenario.

Ditch your spreadsheets and save hours each week. Replace countless spreadsheets with one dashboard. Free yourself to think strategically, respond faster - and win more customers.

Import invoices and bills. Automatically import your invoices and bills from Xero to track any outstanding payments and generate more accurate visual forecasts.

Export and share insights. Share forecasts as CSV or PDF documents - or add stakeholders as Float users.

Simple Forecast and scenario analysis

This is a great tool with enough detail to create a realistic forecast as well as do quite powerful 'what if' scenario analysis. It requires very little effort to get the information from Xero and it allowed my to match the structure of the forecast to match the historical reports in Xero.

Great app - but could be better

This is a great App but could do with having VAT calculated automatically and including Payroll on the Insight function for comparing actual to budget.

Response from Float Cashflow Forecasting

Hi Robert, we're continually looking at new ways to improve and add to Float and VAT is definitely on our radar. Really appreciate your comments, which will be passed on to the Product team 😁
