Cash Flow Management – The Growth Catalyst

Posted by Gil Oliva on Fri, Sep 19, 2014 @ 08:01 AM

Poor cash flow management; it is the Achilles heel for many small businesses. It is always hard when your customers pay late, but if you effectively manage your cash flow, late payment shouldn’t mean disaster. It pays to be prepared!

It is common business practice to take on long, and short-term debt to help finance operating expenses, especially as you start out and as you begin to grow. This debt needs to be managed and utilized in a way that will encourage success, not bog you down in the debt mire. It certainly feels great when you realize your company has grown enough that you can balance your accounts payable with your accounts receivable. But then it is time to grow again and this is when cash flow management becomes even more critical.

Keeping the production lines moving

October is upon us, and many manufacturing companies will be beginning to ramp up production to meet the fast approaching seasonal demand.
