Maintaining a healthy cash flow is one of the most important challenges for a successful business.
Positive cash flow will allow you to meet your payment obligations to suppliers, the taxman and staff on time, while also allowing you to take on additional work and grow your business.
Even successful businesses can suffer from bad cash flow from time to time; it may only take one late payment from a major client for problems to arise. By keeping a close eye on the state of your cash flow, you can help plan for late payments and ensure you have enough of a buffer to help you navigate this situation should it arise.
