Cashflow tip – How to improve cash flow for business – 5 top things to act on NOW!

 

images/CashFlow.jpgOften we are asked how to improve cash flow for our business clients, and there are many areas of your business that can have an effect on how much cash is available. Here are 5 top things to attend to when cash is low. Additionally, by controlling your expenses and increasing your sales, you can improve your cash flow multiple times!

1  Review stock levels

Holding too much stock will tie up cash and may increase storage and insurance costs to protect the stock. Practicing good stock control is to keep stock at efficient levels to service customers, but not sit for months waiting to sell.

2  Manage customer and supplier accounts

Follow up REGULARLY those overdue debtor/customer accounts who owe you money. Managing debtors by having good credit policies and enforcing them, which will keep your cash coming in.

You may also be able to negotiate longer payment terms with your creditors/suppliers. If you can get payment from your customers before you pay your suppliers, you will have zero out of pocket expense – easier said, but sometimes can happen.

3  Review banking products

Using the appropriate 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.

4  Increase sales income

Review your pricing (time to increase?), use an new advertising campaign or improve your customer service and sell add-ons (would you like fries with that?) to see if you can increase revenue and profits. You may also want to consider other ways to growing your business, such as additional complimentary products or services.

5  Reduce overheads

Think about reducing staff overtime hours and controlling overheads. Make your business more environmentally friendly may reduce costs such as power and water bills and minimise wastage. Remember to clearly communicate your policies on these items to your staff.
