Guide to Cash Management

The credit crunch highlighted to businesses the importance of cash management, as those firms that ran short of cash discovered when they found themselves unable to increase their borrowings. Some could not survive and went bust. This tightly written guide clearly explains the six critical aspects of the effective management of cash and cash flow. These involve:

  • forecasting likely cash receipts and payments;

  • establishing funding lines necessary to cover asset purchases or working capital;

  • efficiently managing day-to-day operations with regard to the amount of cash required;

  • selecting appropriate investment opportunities that result in positive cash flow;

  • monitoring the profitability of products and services to ensure they are cash generative and not cash consuming;

  • having a plan for managing excess cash that exceeds demand.

Cash flow rather than profit has always been the ultimate determinant of whether a business survives, and for all businesses that want to avoid a credit crunch, this guide will be invaluable.
