Mar 26, 2020
As we all come to terms with a very uncertain reality right now due to COVID-19, one of your biggest concerns may be cash flow. How will you keep your business afloat when we have no idea who long this situation will last or when life will get back to normal?
Hard though it may be to make any predictions right now, we really recommend putting a cashflow forecast in place. This will help you to focus on what you can control, help you to make the right decisions at the right time, and provide you with the reassurance and confidence that you are doing as much as you can, as well as you can.
In order to help you get the ball rolling, below are a few cash flow template resources which you can download and complete. Work out your estimated sales and costs over the next 3 months and calculate your break even point. You’ll need to do a cashflow forecast in order to make decisions when talking to your bank if you have loans or an overdraft, plus if you’re planning to apply for Government and Bank support.
