When it comes to staying on an even financial keel, having sufficient working capital is essential. But what exactly is working capital, and why is it so vital?

Essentially, working capital is the difference between your current assets, such as cash and accounts payable, and your current liabilities, like accounts payable and any debts due within a year.

The larger your company’s working capital, the healthier your levels of liquidity, and the better you are positioned to weather slow periods.

So what should you do when times are tough?
  • There are several working capital and cash flow finance tools now available to help your business in lean periods. Debtor finance is growing in popularity, and involves the selling of a business’ accounts receivable in exchange for a cash advance. There are several key benefits to debtor finance:
    • As your business grows, the facility grows with it.
    • There is generally no need for real estate security.
    • It is a standalone facility that can sit alongside other business borrowings.
    • It helps you grow your business and increase purchasing power through improved cash flow.
    • There are no capital repayment requirements.
    • It helps strengthen supplier relationships through prompt payment.
