Money, money, money! In the end, the language of businesses is numbers, and all businesses need cash regardless of size or sector.
Sometimes, cashflow can get a bit sticky for many different reasons – bad debts is perhaps the most obvious, but there are many others: long lead times before customers buy; marketing investment; money for stock, replacement equipment, vehicles.
And, of course, growth, which requires investment in new people, larger premises, new equipment, stock, vehicles, marketing campaigns, sales activity – the list goes on.
Critical decisions include when to use cash reserves, forward cash forecasts and likely sales revenue. And when, how or if to take out a loan and if so what type of loan. What are the risks of doing so, what are the best options?
Blackman Terry accountants, Lending Made Simple and ActionCOACH have got together to offer a workshop to help you make decisions on getting loans to support your business plans and needs.
Getting money is not as scary or difficult as you might think.
- Jon Terry from Blackman Terry will explain how to check if you can afford a loan;
- Gillian Palmer and Mary Reed from Lending Made Simple will show different types of loans available and how to get them;
- and Andrew Abaza from ActionCOACH will set out a 5-step process to increase your profitability to make best use of your investment. (and pay it back!)
You will leave the workshop with clarity on how to assess what money you need for your business, how to get the right type of loan if you need it, and how to make sure your business is capable of maximising your investment.
All participants will be eligible for a free consultation/strategy meeting at dates to suit after the workshop.
