In our second accredited CPD course of 2024, delivered in conjunction with leading training provider Tolley, we looked in detail at cash budgeting and the issues that need to be considered when seeking to create and optimise short-term financial strategies.

Even if a business is growing and is performing well, it cannot survive if it runs out of cash or does not manage its short-term capital properly.

This three-hour session covers:

  • The reasons why a business might need to hold cash 
  • Tracing cash and net working capital
  • Identifying the operating and cash cycles
  • Preparing a cash budget
  • Determining the appropriate target cash balance
  • Creating an appropriate short-term financial policy
  • Improving cash management through:
  • Proactively implementing inventory control
  • Strategically following an optimal credit and collection policy

This webinar is aimed at professional advisers assisting their relatively new or small business clients on developing their operational strategies, managing their cashflow or working capital, releasing cash from business operations, or looking to increase operational expenditure.
