Thank you for choosing the Working Capital Cash Manager to help you get a better understanding of how your working capital affects your business. This understanding will allow you to test, measure and improve your business cashflow.
Many business owners look at their Profit and Loss Report and say "If I made that profit, where is it?" The first place many look to see is the bank account or overdraft; however it's not that simple.
Business cashflow is affected by anything that results in money coming into or going out of the business.
One component of variable cashflow which business owners have control is working capital.
The Working Capital Cash Manager defines Working Capital as the sum of Accounts Receivable plus Inventory/Work in Progress (WIP) less Accounts Payable.
In order to obtain the Working Capital Cash Manager Reports and bonus strategies you simply need to complete the input schedule with the amounts as they appear exactly in your Profit & Loss Report and Balance Sheet for the two periods you wish to analyse, benchmark & monitor.
Some of the numbers in your Balance Sheet may include GST whilst others do not; to simplify the input process this can be ignored. It is important to note that ongoing analysis, benchmarking & monitoring is not negatively affected by this simplification as long as the same base is consistently applied.
Sustainable cashflow is essential for every business if you would like additional help call 1300 VBD 123 to organise a "Double-your-profit Plan".
