How to deal with cash flow constraints?

From my experience working with many small businesses, if you are always feeling the strain of cash flow, then you need to pay attention to these areas. 

  • Financially Unaware – You are missing cash flow clarity
  • Cash Flow Tight– Business is running, but barely covering day-to-day operations – There is no extra capital to reinvest in business growth or withdraw as dividends.
  • Scaling your business – Cash generated from operations is not enough to fund the next level business growth.
  • Financial Resilience –  Not able to sustain seasonality, unexpected expense from the supplier,  tax , business loan repayments increment, late payment from a client.


Depending on your current cash flow issues you can go deep dive into one of the four cash flow constraints you are experiencing right now as mentioned above.

How To Build A Cash Flow Surplus ?

From what I have seen working with small business owners and entrepreneurs as their accountant and cash flow advisor, there are three areas you need to be aware of :


  1. Cash Flow Clarity –  Understand your current cash position, identify cash flow bottlenecks and devise a plan to action to improve cash flow.
  2. Cash Flow Control –  Become financially savvy to keep more cash flow in your business to ensure financial stability.
  3. Cash Flow Creation – Create consistent positive cash flow without over relying on sales revenue covering short-term loans to financing options.
