Many areas of your business can have an effect on how much cash you have available. By controlling your expenses and increasing your profits, you can improve your cash flow.
Monitor stock levels
Follow up on overdue accounts. Managing debtors and having good credit policies will keep your cash coming in.
Review banking products
Using the right banking transaction products can have the money in your pocket sooner. Consider a mobile eftpos device, or investigate services to take payments over the phone or online.
Think about reducing staff overtime and controlling overheads. Make your business more environmentally friendly and you may reduce costs such as power and water bills and minimise wastage. Remember to clearly communicate your policies on these items to your staff.
Improve your financial skills or get expert advice
Improving your management and financial skills can help you improve your cash flow. Attend a workshop to improve your business knowledge.
You can also seek advice from a professional accountant or financial adviser, who can assess your individual situation.
