cash out flow is the amount paid off by the business to buy the goods for reselling.
Cash outflow is any money leaving a business. This could be from paying staff wages, the cost of renting an office or from paying dividends to shareholders. It’s the opposite of cash inflow, which is the money going into the business. A business is considered unhealthy if its cash outflow is greater than its cash inflow.
Cash outflows are the sums of money paid out by a business over a period of time.
