Step 2 - Getting paid sooner

Invoice promptly and actively manage your debtors to ensure payment is made in accordance with your budgetary timeline. To get more cash coming into the business you can also consider:

  • Reducing your terms of trade so you're paid sooner (e.g. offer a discount for fast payment).
  • Increasing your net profit, by either increasing your sales price or reducing your costs of sale or operating expenses.
