Download our free daily cashflow template and keep on top of outgoings, expenses and income. You are far more likely to be able to spot potential problems ahead if you are regularly looking at it.
Remember the old saying, " Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity and cashflow is reality."
Use the cash flow model every day to see "where you are" and what issues could turn into problems. Plug in the dates each customer that owes you money should pay you - you can use this as a guide for debtor collection.
Are your customers taking longer to pay you? If so, why is this? The best thing to do is to find out by asking ALL of your customers. You can assess your own debtor collection dates, find out how they are doing and market to them. Then, update the daily cash flow, it should show when customers are likely to pay you.
Good cashflow management goes hand in hand with cost cutting. When you see daily figures, it helps focus the mind! Please take a look at our cost cutting tips
