German term or phrase:Planliquiditätsrechnung
planliquiditaetsrechnung fuer eine beteiligung von EUR 100,000
Explanation: Structure of German nouns (in general) is such that the last word is the actual 'object' and every noun in front is in the nature of adjuectives. Therefore:
Its a 'calculation', what type ? Calculation of liquidity ? What type of liquidity ? Plan(ned).
Any other intended meaning would mean that the original author made a mess of the German language. 'Planliquiditaet' is already pretty poor German. He probably thought that 'geplante Liquiditaetsechnung' would not convey the intended meaning, because it would mean that the 'rechnung' was 'geplant'. Hence 'Planliquiditaet' (in my take of this).
