It’s a well-worn phrase, but cashflow really is the lifeblood of your business.
When your cash inflows are greater than your cash outflows, that puts you in a positive cashflow position – giving you the liquid cash needed to trade, improve and grow as a business.
But if costs start to outstrip your income, that can leave too little cash in the pot. This results in mounting debt, problems paying suppliers and (in the worst cases) the failure of your business.
So it’s vital to get proactive with cashflow management!
Fast ways to improve your cash flow
Cashflow is an ongoing process, where you need to constantly track, monitor and act on the numbers you see in your regular cash flow statements.
A negative cashflow position can be due to a number of factors, whether it’s insufficient sales, slow payment of invoices or poor cost management. The solution to these issues is to take a proactive and holistic approach to improving the company’s cash situation.
Some key ways to boost your cash position include:
- Improve your sales and marketing – creating more sales and boosting income
- Make it easy to get paid – using the latest in payment tech to speed up payment times
- Track and manage debts – chasing any late payments to reduce your aged debt
- Manage spending effectively – and start to track, review and reduce your costs
