Topic: Cash Flow Management
Cash flow management is a key aspect of financial management of a business. An accurate cash flow projection can alert you to trouble well before you urgently need financial assistance. Positive cash flow occurs when the cash funneling into your business from sales, or accounts receivables is more than the amount of the cash leaving your businesses through accounts payable, monthly expenses or salaries. Negative cash flow can signal to a lender that the business is in trouble. Poor planning can result in less than ideal, expensive financing options.
