Working Capital

The well-being of your business depends not just on its wealth, but also on its health.

A wealthy business with strong revenues and high profits may or may not be a healthy one with sufficient cash flow to meet its future working capital needs, such as financing the purchase of raw materials and meeting overheads.

Understanding your business working capital cycle

By managing your working capital efficiently, you will ensure your business always has adequate cash flow to meet all its short-term expenses and obligations. Your working capital is determined by three main factors:

  1. Collections
  2. Credit Terms
  3. Inventory Management
