Cash flow is the life blood of any company. Many times small businesses are growing, the owners know (or are told by their accountant or tax preparer) that they are making money, but find themselves short of cash to make payroll or meet normal operating expenses.

A shortage of cash can be caused by many factors. Among them are:

  • Uncollected receivables
  • Not managing payables
  • Overstocking inventory
  • Poor controls over cash receipts and cash disbursements
  • Large capital expenditures paid out of operating cash flow
  • Untimely distributions because of prior cash surpluses

I can prepare statements of cash flow; analyze the reasons for the shortages in your company; prepare projections for future cash flows; assist in installing efficient cash flow procedures and policies; and assist with getting financing for those periods of shortages.
