    Default delayed/ deferred or postponed.

    Hi,
    I want to say that one cash flow provides money latter than another shall I write that the first cash flow is more deferred than the second?
    or maybe more delayed or more postponed ? maybe there is another way ?
    I asked in several forums but I do not have an answer.
    I will be really thankful for your help.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Can you give us an example of a cash flow providing money later than another? I'm not sure what you mean.

    See the amendments I made to your post in red. We don't put a space before a question mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Do you mean that one source of income pays later than another?
