My financial statement always has me comfortably making the aforementioned sums, including interest paid on the debts, yet it just goes nowhere.

Within this, i have an enterprise currently making $1.5B per month, which is now at $210B debt and the cash is constantly going backwards.

I'm getting a little over it, but am unsure if this is a bug, or how to get hold of simcountry developers to see what is going wrong.

The enterprise is called Corporal Print, and the dodgy corporation is Corporal Navy Vessels Maint 02 - value $390B

Current Debt is $7.02T, plus $1950B debt in corporations, and cash is at -$19B (which is the best my cash has been for some time, but offset by worse corporation debt)

I have a 2nd enterprise that got pushed to similar debt levels as this one, but has 40 less corps, and makes half as much profit, and it is absolutely thriving and paying off the $7T debt very comfortably.

Anyone know what i should do?

There's an automatic system which tops up the cash of the corporations when it gets low from the enterprise account.

This means that it's possible to be making an overall profit across the enterprise but have decreasing cash because the automatic transfers are sending more money to the corporations than the profit payment system is sending back.

You can do some manual transfers to bring cash back from profitable corps to the enterprise as a temporary solution but the long-term solution is to work out how to make the corporations more profitable so that they suck cash out of the enterprise less often.

The corporation cash report page should show exactly where the cash is going.

cash in profitable corporations can decline if the corporation is purchasing materials or as commented here, exchanges cash with the enterprise.

please check.
if it remains unclear, let us know.
I will then have a look.

The taxes that your CEO corporations pay to the countries they are in are paid by the CEO itself and not the corporation. If you have 0% profit transfer, you should see your enterprise cash drop every month as it pays the taxes, but your corporations should be increasing their cash reserve. If you transfer some back it will all even out.
