Cash flow solutions for SME’s

 

Running into cash flow problems isn’t uncommon for a lot of businesses, in particular when they are first starting. But failing to get ahead of these problems, can mean they quickly become unmanageable.

Fortunately, there is a range of strategies that can help solve cash flow problems. Below are a few measures you can implement today.  

Cash flow forecasting

Ensure you are using cash flow forecasting. This can give you a great insight into your future cash flow.

You can predict which months you will see a deficit, and which months you might find yourself with a surplus, enabling you to forward plan better. For example, if your forecast indicates that your cash flow might dip next month, you can act immediately to cut down on your business expenses to minimise the impact on your cash flow.

Reduce your expenses

Reducing expenses is often a common approach to solving cash flow issues, but it’s very easy to go about this in the wrong way by cutting down on areas that reduce your ability to generate revenue. The key is to focus on expense reducing measures that will maximise your cash flow and not impact business operations.

Consider suspending non-essential expenses such as landscaping or window cleaning or explore cost-saving opportunities on services such as phones and the internet.

Improve your invoicing process

An automated invoicing system can address many cash flow problems simply by reducing errors and ensuring everyone receives their bills on time.

It will also give you a clear snapshot of your current cash position and provide you with helpful data and insights to assist with forecasting.

Consider other funding sources

Consider accessing the equity you currently have tied up in business assets that you own. This will not only provide you with a cash flow boost but it will also allow you to continue using the asset to trade.

Depending on how you structure it, raising capital through your business assets could help solve both short- and long-term cash flow issues.

Although challenging, cash flow problems can often be solved. By identifying the issues and developing solutions that best suit your business needs, you are putting yourself in the best position to achieve success.

Whatever your current circumstances, we can help you gain access to the commercial finance packages your business needs, in the most cost-effective way possible.
