Managing receivables is vital to the success of any business. When there is a constant stream of revenue, businesses can make payroll, meet overhead expenses, and even make plans to expand their operations. Mounting unpaid receivables can cause cash flow to flip upside down, and suddenly those liabilities on the balance sheet threaten to overshadow your revenue. Fortunately, there are a few ways to handle receivables to ensure constant revenue.
Down PaymentsThe idea of down payments makes a number of business owners cringe, but the practice is far from uncommon. Large orders or contracts usually require customers to pay a small part of the balance upfront before anything is delivered. In fact, managing receivables with a down payment policy ensures customers will settle the remainder of the balance on their accounts.

Staffing agencies are in-demand now more than ever. Manufacturers, construction companies, government offices, big data companies, and every industry in between are turning to staffing agencies to fill niche roles.

They may not be able to pay people who are currently filling roles, and larger contracts turn into missed opportunities due to the lack of capital needed to branch into new markets. Even large staffing agen

For businesses to thrive and grow, they need access to a reliable and renewable source of working capital. Since the earliest days of banking, when businesses needed extra funding, loans were the “go to” solution. In this day and age, the marketplace is moving at a much faster pace than it was even a few years ago, and business owners are trying to avoid debt-based lending to minimize liabilities and maintain a positive cash flow. Traditional financing methods are falling by the wayside in favor of a faster and less cumbersome method.
Traditional Loans and Cash Flow IssuesWhen we look at loans, taking on extra debt to correct cash flow issues, makes little sense. If cash flow issues arise, loans will only help to ensure those issues come to the forefront, later on down the line. For example, a business is experiencing cash flow issues. Expenses are outweighing the rate at which customers are remitting payment on invoices. To fix this, the business takes out a loan, whic

Almost every aspect of our economy depends on the oil and gas industry, right down to the supply chains that move energy resources and finished products from coast to coast, and even overseas. Oil and gas sales are on the rise, but that doesn’t mean revenue is coming in any faster.
