    Cash Flow Management

    Strategies to ensure cashflow remains positive

    Even growing, profitable companies can be hit with cash flow problems.

    Companies who excel in their management of working capital will have a real competitive advantage.

     

    The goal of working capital management is to ensure that a business is able to continue its operations and that it has sufficient ability to satisfy both maturing short-term debt and upcoming operational expenses. The management of working capital involves managing inventories, accounts receivable and payable, and cash.

     

    If you own a business and your sales are growing at a rampant pace and you’re increasing profits each year, you’re certainly headed in the right direction. But even growing, profitable companies can be hit with cash flow problems if their finance, operations and/or investing activities aren’t running efficiently.

     

    Depending on the type of business you are running, you may be faced with the following issues:

    • Additional funding requirements due to increased working capital driven by business growth
    • Lack of visibility on cash and working capital performance across the organisation
    • Difficulty in balancing and managing the trade-off’s between cash, cost and service
    • High levels of overdue receivables and bad debt write-off’s

     

    With businesses constantly under pressure not only to remain solvent but also improve results there has never been a more important time to focus on maximising liquidity and free cash flow.
