Show Objectives - The Why
The number one reason businesses and companies go out of business because they simply do not have any cash or resources to be a going concern. Going concerns are businesses that will operate for a year beyond a reporting period. Everyone in business has to be able to know if they are going to exist first and be profitable second.
The major determinant of whether or not a business is going to last is predicated upon working capital, funds or resources to keep your business going when times may be lean. Many businesses run on an accrual basis, in which they provide goods or services in advance of getting paid and cash in the bank from the customer or client.
During these uncertain times we have to be prepared when our accounts receivable balances are growing past 90 days or more! The money is coming but it takes longer all the while our accounts payable is growing and the vendors are calling seeking payment and payroll is next week! Help is on the way with today’s episode, “Keeping the Cash Flowing”.
