Profit / Loss
« on: June 09, 2016, 09:10:56 AM »
Hello,

Currently playing in game world #3. If i go to the office and look at the "company pre-tax profit" it tells me that there is a loss of about 1.4 million every week. However I am making money! Start with 400.000 after a night of sleep I have 3 million, how?!?!

Greetings,

Thijs

You may have either pre-paid leases (deposits on used aircraft) or you may own aircraft that has depreciation charges.  These are 2 examples of items where they affect P/L as an expanse, but cash is not paid.

Where can you see if you have a pre-paid lease?

On Office -> Balance Sheet there is an item Prepaid Expenses.  It includes all of the money you paid as deposits on leases (new or used).

Then, when aircraft gets delivered, the 4 month prepayment gets used up, which creates the scenario you are seeing: Your cash goes up faster than the Profit.

To know the exact amount for the week, go to Office -> Cash Flow

There is an item: "Adjustments of items where a payment is not included "
it has 2 components I mentioned.
