INVOICING & PAYMENTS


Send invoices straight away and encourage payment.

The sooner you send an invoice, the faster your client is likely to transfer the funds required. And when necessary, you can also encourage payment by sending reminders, providing incentives for paying on time and clearly outlining the penalties of late payment.

Offer electronic payment methods.

Make it simple and convenient for your clients to make payment to your business. Electronic payment methods are safe and secure and often mean you receive your funds faster.


RELATIONSHIPS


Conduct credit checks.

If you have hesitation or are concerned about a customer being able to pay on time, a credit check might be useful. Poor credit can indicate that you won’t be paid on time, and this can negatively impact your cash flow long term.


Seek trusted suppliers and service providers.

Great businesses are built on a multitude of relationships and maintaining a relationship with great suppliers and service providers can improve cash flow and stability. You may even receive loyalty discounts or incentives for regular purchases.


INVENTORY & PRICING


Know your stock levels.

Checking your inventory usage and stock levels at regular intervals will inform both your ordering processes and your cash flow projections. It also helps with business planning and budgeting.


Appropriate pricing.

It is important to understand the value of your product or service and to price it accordingly. You may need to adjust or experiment with your prices to provide greater cash flow and profit opportunities.
