The Importance of Positive Cash Flow for SMEs

Jul 20 2018

Cash Flow is a great signal to indicate the health of Small To Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Positive cash flow puts a company in a better position to grow and sustain the business.

However, if the business cash flow is constantly in negative, there should be an immediate concern to find out what is causing the problem. Not all situations are alike. However, many common issues can be solved by taking advantage of debtor financing with BCashflow Positive.

What is Cash Flow?

Cash flow takes into account the total amount of cash you have on hand. It looks at the total cash from one billing period to the next and compares money in with money out.

If you have money left over, you are cash flow positive. And if you’re left with a negative number, then you’re cash flow negative.

Why is Positive Cash Flow Important?

As the saying goes, “Cash is King,” and for a good reason. Having surplus cash is necessary for meeting operating expenses like wages, and unexpected expenses that might pop up like servicing equipment that requires maintenance.

There are many reasons why a company is cash flow negative. Poor cash management is a common factor with SMEs, which can lead to problems like restricted growth or worse, insolvency.

Even a profitable company has the chance of going out of business when the negative cash flow is a long-term issue. The lack of available cash is what can cripple a business over time.
