Cash Flow Management

Cash Flow Management

Poor cashflow is the number on reason businesses fail.

Cashflow planning is best practice in any business and critical to survival and growth.

Setting targets and monitoring your actual cashflow against your forecast will enable you to predict large cash outflows and respond to changes in your business.

Whether your bank has requested a Cashflow Forecast or not, every business owner needs an understanding of cash and liquidity for better decision making. All businesses should have a Cashflow Forecast in place at the beginning of the new financial year. Having said that, we can prepare one at any time!

Profitable businesses can experience extreme cashflow problems, just as unprofitable businesses can survive if they are well-funded.
