    The cash flow is

    The cash flow is not matched yet. We are still working on it to resolve this issue.

    Is the above sentence correct?

    Re: The cash flow is

    I don't know what it is supposed to mean so it's hard to say if it's correct. How does one match cash flow? What is it being matched with?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The cash flow is not matched with actual balance available. We are still working on it to resolve this issue.

    Now does the above sentence makes sense?

    No. The cash flow is the rate at which the money comes in and goes out. The balance is the difference between assets and liabilities at a given time. There is no direct relationship between the two.

    I am not sure why you say this. The balance in the cash flow is always the difference between money comes in and money goes out with opening balance in place.
    It can also be derived from difference between assets and liabilities approach.

    However my main question was that the below sentence is correct or not in any context:

    It's OK, but you could delete 'on it'.

    Re: The cash flow is

    I think the confusion may have been caused by just saying "cashflow" instead of "The cash flow balance does not match the actual balance available. To most readers "cash flow" just means incomings and outgoings from an account.

    As to asking whether the second part of your sentence is correct, it seems so to me.

    I want to understand that why "that" and "below" is wrong? Please clarify.

    Re: The cash flow is

    You are asking if or whether something is correct or not.

    Say 'the following sentence' or 'the sentence below'.

    'The below sentence' is not colloquial.
