  • 1. 7 Tips on SMALL BUSINESS CASH FLOW © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 2. Good CASH FLOW is the life blood of any small business. © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 3. Without it, business owners struggle constantly to find enough resources to keep the business going © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 4. Tip 1. Get a weekly copy of your bank statement Many business owners do not ever review their bank statement and leave it up to their book keeper to do all this for them. © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 5. As a result it’s ‘out of sight - out of mind’ when it comes to the awareness of cash and they only look when a crisis occurs. © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 6. Tip 2. Review your invoicing procedures If you are not efficient in getting invoices out to customers then you’re unlikely to get money back from them efficiently. © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 7. You send a message to your customers with your invoicing procedure so if it is haphazard or late your customers are likely to take the same attitude to paying you © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 8. Tip 3. Review your terms with your customers What terms do you sell on? Do your customers adhere to those terms or just pay when they feel like it? © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 9. When was the last time you checked the actual terms in your business or reviewed them with your customers? © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 10. Tip 4. Clean out old inventory Many business owners hate the pain of dealing with old inventory because it usually represents a mistake which can be hard to own up to. © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 11. As a result the inventory builds up and ties up money in goods sitting doing nothing © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 12. Tip 5. Review your payment procedures Do you have a disciplined and formal method of paying your suppliers? Do you time your payments with receiving money from your customers? © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 13. Do you wait for suppliers to call before paying? Are there particular days of the week or times in the month when you make payments? © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 14. Tip 6. Review your terms with your suppliers When was the last time you negotiated terms with your suppliers? Do the terms with your suppliers match the terms you give you customers? © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 15. If you buy on 30 days and sell on 60 days then you will always have a cash flow deficit particularly if your business is growing strongly © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 16. Tip 7. Don’t focus solely on making a profit Most business owners are completely focused on making a profit until they run out of cash © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 17. This means focused on the costing and pricing without considering their working capital and how the money flows in their business. © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
  • 18. While making a profit is important, having money in the bank is more important because when there is no more money you’re broke!! © Copyright One Sherpa Pty Ltd 2008
