Once a Project has been created, you will land on the 'Project cash flow' page where you can add placeholders for Income and Costs you expect to happen in order to build the Project cash flow.

If you already have Invoices and bills in Float, these can be added in directly.


Placeholders allow income and costs to be added directly into a project, without the need to be assigned to an accounting category. These will be shown in date order.

When creating a placeholder you also have the option to set this placeholder to repeat. You can find more information here.

You have the ability to replace your placeholders with an invoice, bill or bank transaction once you’ve started to incur costs or invoice your client. To do this, you’ll see a replace button on the right side of the individual placeholder.

When a placeholder is replaced by an invoice, bill or bank transaction, the item will be moved automatically from the accounting category in the main cash flow, to the project.

Overdue Items

If any placeholders for income/costs, or invoices/bills become overdue, these will be removed from your project cash flow until they have been updated. Overdue invoices and bills will be highlighted and remain in the income and cost list.

Be sure to update the placeholders with new future dates, or replace the placeholder with the invoice/bill or bank transaction associated to see an updated net cash movement for the project.

Net Cash Movement

You can see the net cash movement of a project at the top right of the project cash flow graph. The small widget provides a breakdown of the the total income, total costs, and the net movement

Project-based work can sometimes result in inconsistent or fluctuating payments, making it harder to keep an eye on your cash position. By using Float projects you’ll see the real-time progress of each project, understand each project’s make-up, and spot cash gaps ahead of time.
