Getting Started with Managing Cash: Understanding the tools and techniques to help you manage a healthy cash flow.

‘Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity and cash is reality’ is well known amongst business owners. While many agree that turnover (sales) figure should not be the main focus of financial control, there is often confusion between ‘profit’ and ‘cash’. In this webinar, we will explore what both terms mean and the key differences between them. We will then look closely at various ways a small business should manage its cash on a day-to-day basis. This webinar will equip you with a number of tools and habits on cash management, which you should be able to apply to your business in a very practical way. 

The webinar will cover:

  • Main reasons why businesses fail 

  • Difference between Profit & Loss and Cash and why both are important 

  • How to maximise cash by managing your cash collection cycle 

  • What is working capital and how to manage it 

  • Practical ways to plan for tax and build buffer cash 

  • Quick introduction to how to prepare a Cash Flow Forecast 

  • Pointers for managing payments to yourself as the owner 

  • Q&A session
