Information on cash flow financing solutions and techniques for the Canadian business owner and manager . Problems can be solved via internal techniques and real world working capital tools.
Whether your financing challenges are temporary, or seem to be occurring all the time the Canadian business owner and financial manager is always looking for a fix to that dilemma. So our focus on strategies and straightforward business financing methods that... you got it... fix the problem.
Tip # 1 - Don't pay anyone! Well we're kidding of course, but a better way of saying what we intended to mean is that you can manage a lot of your cash by using an internal solution... payables management. The trick of course is having key vendors and supplies that value your business and want to work with you to keep your business - somewhat of a classic win / in scenario, don't you think.
The ability to turn your stated 30 day terms into 60 and 90 days with your vendors allows many companies to actually become self financing. That's almost cash flow nirvana - not borrowing and growing your business. It's no secret that some of the largest companies in the world pay firms such as yours slowly just to optimize their corporate cash flow. The nerve of those guys.
Our final point on this technique is simply that you don't want to end up ruining a key supplier / vendor relationship, so a proper sharing of the facts keeping in mind the value of the relationship is critical.
Tip # 2- Accelerate collections, finance receivables, and better yet... do both! When we talk to clients about their cash flow financing challenges it’s often about their customers owing them money and not paying. The internal things you can do to fix this problem are of course to be more firm with collections and enforce your terms. Big companies hold shipments to their clients, so you should not be afraid to also. We'd also consider raising prices to clients that don't pay. Just keeping a constant watch on your days sales outstanding or collection period is going to make you a true ' Master' of business solutions and solving those working capital problems .
You might also want to offer a discount for prompt payment. One key point here is that you need to have some decent gross margins when it comes to offering a typical 2% discount for prompt payment. But don't forget also that you can take those same funds you receive and take discounts with your own suppliers. Another key concept here is to understand your borrowing rates and bench mark them against discounts you might offer for prompt payment
