The Operating Cash Flow Reports
Operating Cash Flow is a modified type of Cash Flow report, designed to show investors a picture of their day to day operating in and outs. The Operating Cash Flow report does NOT reflect asset purchases via either manual journal or fixed asset purchase. This prevents the occasional property purchase or CapEx transaction from heavily distorting your view of your more standard, day to day and ongoing operational money in and money out.
To view Cash Flow reports that also include manual journals and fixed asset purchases, select either the 'Cash Flow Statement' or the 'Cash Flows by Property' report.
The first section of the Operating Cash Flow reports detail out your Net Operating Income (NOI), broken down by Operating Revenues and Operating Expenses. NOI includes all of your operational costs except for financing related items, which is reported in the next two sections.
The second section reports on debt service - both principal paydown and interest expenses. The third section reports on escrow contributions. Click here for more information on escrow contributions and expenses.
