Managing Cash Flow



Cash flow is the flow of money in and out of the business. Managing your cash flow is vital for business survival and growth, even if you have existing cost savings programs in your organization.


The impact of disasters such as the pandemic outbreak has driven the global economy into a recession and many businesses are only just trying to survive. Before taking drastic actions such as cutting salaries and staff, now may be a good time to review your current cash flow performance to stem unnecessary cash outflow and eliminate the cost of waste in your processes.


To run your business effectively, you need to balance the timing and amount of your expenses with those of your income. This Managing Cash Flow PPT training presentation explains the various areas you need to consider when managing and improving cash flow in your business.
