Understanding and quantifying global cash flow is becoming more of a necessity for financial institutions which lend money to businesses. Understanding and analyzing the information contained in personal income tax returns is an important aspect of recognizing the financial condition of loan guarantors.

This program will assist lenders in interpreting the information contained in personal tax returns in order to determine the ability of customers who are guaranteeing loans to add strength to loan requests.
