OVERVIEW – Information on business cash flow solutions . Finding the right funding to finance your firm.
Funding your business properly is a key for all business owners/mgrs. How does then do we finance business cash flow to the point where we have the right financing in place to continue and grow the business? The goal? A constant positive hum in cash! Let’s dig in.
A great way to think of cash flow is simply focusing in how funds move via your incoming revenues and outgoing expenses. Pretty basic, right? , but when profitable business can even fail when cash flow fails that ‘ pretty basic’ statement becomes all important.
Having the right financing in place is of course only one solution to the challenge, albeit an important one. For start up or earlier stage firms that is all important; yet at the same time the wrong financing at the wrong rates and structures is also a double edged sword , especially when financing is secured by your key assets.
We’re all for growing sales revenues, but when you over extend credit and are improperly financed problems quickly arise. Those challenges are most often solved by monetizing current assets – your A/R and inventory. Finance solutions available? They include:
Bank revolving credit lines
A/R Commercial financing
Asset based non bank lines of credit (They combine receivables, inventories as well as fixed assets into one credit line)
Some alternative funding solutions for current assets include SR&ED tax credit financing, royalty finance, and PO financing.
Those above noted solutions keep cash flow ‘ humming ‘, keeping suppliers, lenders, and employees ‘ happy’.
Another potential major drain on our ‘ cash flow hum ‘ is the need to acquire assets to run your business. While the temptation from such ideas as ‘ pride of ownership ‘ has some business owners/mgrs purchasing assets outright that can be a huge drain on our cash flow hum. The optimal solution here, more often than not is Equipment Financing/Leasing. Financing assets from daily operations is rarely the right thing to do.
We’ll also mention that for those firms that have inventories the key to inventory mgmt is solid asset turnover and maintaining the right levels of inventory – always a challenge!
A good way to look at the ‘big picture’ in business cash flow is to isolate the movement of cash into what you can call the ‘ constant daily hum’ of regular selling and collecting, while assessing ‘ non regular’ outflows such as asset purchases, seasonal bulges in your business, new or large contracts.
When you’re looking at the putting the right lending facility in place for managing business cash flow seek out and speak to a trusted, credible and experienced Canadian business financing advisor who can ensure you’re tapping into the right financing sources for your… cash flow hum.
