Business cash flow can be affected by any number of factors and the business making either profit or loss is only part of the story. Managing working capital is key to ensuring the business has enough cash to pay its way and the structure of a business’s funding lines can often help with this.
Working capital is typically the funding of a business’s debtor, creditor, stock and work in progress cycle. Getting the balance of these factors right is the key to healthy cash flow. A growing business however will find this difficult as additional stocks and a growing debtor balance will need funding.
Our team of experts are here to help ensure that the business is properly funded and can manage its working capital cycle. We have links to funders in our professional network who can help in this regard.
Cash flow forecasting can be a valuable tool in understanding the cash flow peaks and troughs that lie ahead. Financial visibility is key to any funder in order that they may understand what they are being asked to fund and why.
As part our financial information provision, we not only help you understand the profitability of the business but we interpret the numbers to help you understand the impact on cash. Where you require more than an annual viewpoint on this, we may achieve this more regularly with either monthly or quarterly management information. Our experts are here to help with regard to achieving this on a speedy and cost effective basis using the latest technology available.
Factoring and invoice discounting has become increasingly popular as the availability of traditional overdraft facilities has waned. We can help you find the right solution via our network of contacts to ensure that the business is properly funded especially in the event of the next growth cycle.
