Get proactive with working capital

What is working capital? How to improve your working capital Working capital finance
Paying suppliers, salaries, maintenance, restocking: working capital is the money available to cover these everyday financial commitments. In financial speak, your accessible working capital is generally defined as the difference between your current assets and current liabilities. Gain control by credit-checking prospective customers to make sure they can pay. Also, cast a critical eye over your billing processes – are your terms too lenient? How do you chase overdue payments? Small shifts in either area can be quick wins to boost your working capital. While you work on improving your cash flow situation long-term, a one-off injection of working capital can provide flexibility. Arranging a term loan can give you the security to take advantage of new opportunities, bridge short-term funding gaps, or invest in new products and services.
