  • Manage your business cash flow

    Your inward and outward cash flow is what keeps your business going. You need to make sure your business is likely to make money and will have enough cash available at the right time to pay its bills and to meet your tax, superannuation and employer obligations.

    Paying regular attention to your record-keeping and reporting tasks will help you manage your cash flow better.

    Prepare a cash flow projection

    The best way to make sure you have enough cash available to meet your tax and other obligations is to do a cash flow projection or budget. The information in your cash flow budget will help you to:

    • see your likely cash position at any time
    • identify any fluctuations that may lead to potential cash shortages
    • plan for your tax payments
    • plan for any major expenses
    • provide lenders with additional information.
