Why is cashflow so central to good financial management? Here's our plain english guide.
What is cashflow?
Cashflow refers to the movement of money into and out of your business over a specific period.
In the most basic terms, cashflow is the process of cash moving out of the business (cash outflows), and cash coming into the business (cash inflows). The ideal scenario is to be in a ‘positive cashflow position’. This means that your inflows outweigh your outflows – i.e. that more cash is coming into the business than is going out.
When you’re cashflow positive, the main benefit is that you have the liquid cash available to fund your daily operations and debt payments etc.
On the flip side, if you’re in a negative cashflow position, this can be a red flag that the business is facing some financial challenges – and that some serious cost-cutting and/or revenue generation is needed.
