Many existing businesses feel they seem to be constantly fighting fires chasing debts, finding new sales, organising the work & staff, dealing with employment law and other legislation issues.
Owners and directors in many cases feel that they their businesses not seem to be performing as they wish. A regular comment is, ‘We are busy but we don’t seem to be making as much money as we expected.’
One of their biggest worries is running out of money. This is a major risk for a large number of businesses especially in a period as the economy moves out of recession. The new sales they have fought hard to win have got to be financed buying stock or materials, making a product. Even service sector businesses have to cash flow the work being carried out especially if the new sales mean extra staff costs or overtime. In both sectors there is waiting to get paid! Just managing costs is a battle on its own. Take a look at my existing business support options for a flexible range of options that will suit your needs
