Managing uncertain cashflow
Many of the businesses we support tell us that the only certainty at present is uncertainty.
They know all too well that, due to the pandemic, the way their business is permitted to operate (if at all) is subject to change at short notice.
It’s challenging to understand what impact these changes will have on your business and cash flow in both the short and long term.
Also, when assessing potential strategies in response to changes, it’s hard to understand the impact of them as there are many variables to consider, eg interest rates, unexpected path of the pandemic or staff illness.
This is where Cash Flow Modelling can help.
It allows you to test out the impact of any combination of actions/events on your cash flow, before making any business decisions*.
How does it work?
We will take time to fully understand your business aspirations. We will then model a number of different ‘what if’ scenarios that take into account your wishes, approach to risk and also variables outside your control, some of which we mentioned above.
It’s best if it’s not undertaken as a ‘one off’ exercise and we work closely with you to review the progress of your business on an ongoing basis.
