Cash flow is known to be a type of statement that a lot of investors find essential. This is needed to do net cash flow. Fund flow is not a statement, and it is necessary to understand the current position of the company. The working capital is normally shown when you are checking out the operating activities of what you are trying to monitor.

The type of accounting that they are going to do are also different from each other. Cash flow will follow the necessary cash flow basis for accounting, while net flow will follow the accrual basis of accounting to come up with the results.

Cash flow takes place when cash moves (or flows) in and out of business. It is generally for about a month. Fund flow is when there are changes in the financial position of business between the previous year and the current one. The term fund flow has two isolated definitions with one used in accounting and one in investing.


In accounting, it speaks to a statement used to explain any changes in financial position between accounting years. In investing, it's when investors (or marketing analysts) monitor the fund flow in separate divisions in an economy. Cash flow demonstrates the inflows and outflows of cash in a business, whereas funds flow calls attention to a previous and current assessment combined to explain any change or discrepancy.

Cash flow and fund flow are two different kinds of financial statements in the account. Cash flow refers to the change in cash position (flowing in and flowing out of cash) in an organization. Cash flow statement is used to explain the difference between the opening cash balance and the closing cash balance over a given period.

On the other hand, fund flow statement explains the change in the financial position of a business within a given period. It provides a long term analysis of working capital. Fund flow does not include opening cash balance and cash equivalents.

Making a statement which shows any discrepancies in the cash balance and bank balance from the start and end dates of the specific period, then are referring to the cash flow. When you make a statement, which shows differences in financial position from one year to another; you are referring to the fund flow.

Analyzing the cash flow means you are investigating how active your business is at generating cash. On the other hand, when you are examining how competent your business is using working capital. Making a statement for fund flow is expedient for a long term evaluation of finances. When making accounting for cash flow, it contains the opening balance of cash.

Cash Flow and Fund Flow are statements used by investors and others in the financial industry. Cash flow statements relate to the liquidity a company may have, while the fund flow statement relates to how much money is coming in at that time. Both statements are based off simpler terms.

Cash flow is based off the word cash, while fund flow is based off the words working capitol. These statements have different uses and purposes. The purpose of the cash flow is to identify when that next flow will occur. The purpose of the fund flow is to understand how the company is doing, based off their financial position.
