Keeping the cash in your business...

Speirs Finance

What growth could your business achieve if it had more working capital?
Cash flow is the “life blood” of any business and it is crucial to ensure this remains positive to create a sustainable and profitable business that can retain and attract good staff while meeting the ever-increasing costs of compliance.

If a business has cash tied up in existing assets or is looking at using cash reserves to pay for the acquisition of new assets then the key question that should be asked is what is the “opportunity cost” to the business of not having these funds available for working capital i.e. what additional revenue could be generated if these funds were used to increase production or purchase more inventory?

Having a finance provider who can genuinely help you with structuring appropriate finance for new assets or help you release equity from your existing assets may mean the difference between stress or success in your business.
