Cash flow is the life force of any business. In the long-term businesses go under due to lack of profit, but in the short term they fail because they don’t have enough cash to pay the bills. 90% of business failures are caused by cash flow management problems.
The Virtual FD can help you manage, plan and forecast cash flow, and improve working capital management. Our forecasting process can incorporate different scenarios and will translate into a three-way forecast, which includes a forecasted profit and loss statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement.
Having access to cash also gives you better buying and negotiating power, which could save you money long term. Your cash flow forecast also helps to anticipate any shortfalls in funds which allows you to make contingency cash flow arrangements.
Managing cash flow is critical to all businesses but by getting the basics right, you will be in a good position to move forward and grow your business.
