Does your company have working capital problems?
As every business owner knows, working capital is vital for any operation. Not having enough cash in the business can lead to problems quickly. Our guide identifies the various types of ways to secure working capital as well as what to do if you see trouble ahead.
Different types of working capital
- Trade finance
- Peer to peer finance
- Invoice & Factoring
- Stock finance
- Seasonal finance
- Cash flow finance
Due to the recent pandemic, working capital is likely to be a big problem for many businesses as they try and restart their operations. Many bills and creditors have been stretched out into the future and loans taken out.

Stop problems spiralling out of control
If there is a lack of working capital and your company is struggling to make tax payments as and when they fall due, it’s best to seek turnaround advice straight away to prevent any further debt issues. Failure to pay business taxes to HMRC could lead to a winding up petition issued against your company.
Rescue methods like a Time to Pay deal with HMRC or a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) are effective restructuring tools if your company is viable. If the business has come to the end of the road, a creditors voluntary liquidation (CVL) may be the best option. A CVL will close down the company and sell assets (if any) for cash to distribute back to creditors.
