82% of businesses that fail do so as a result of cashflow issues
69% of SMEs say cashflow constraints are their biggest challenge
42% of businesses are concerned about taking on additional debt to improve cashflow

Common Problems

For many businesses the day to day challenges result in far too little time being invested in developing robust strategies to develop and improve the organisation’s working capital position in order to enable the organisation to fuel increased rates of growth in terms of both revenue and margin.

A lack of analysis of the organisation’s value chain invariably results in a poor understanding, even amongst leadership teams, of the key drivers of working capital position and prevents the formulation of a suitable strategic plan to improve the situation.


Successful entrepreneurs and leadership teams recognise that by focusing on developing a strong working capital position they not only improve the organisation’s ability to compete in the short-term, but also enhance the organisation’s overall enterprise/asset value for the long-term.

A strong working capital position is one the key drivers of asset value, particularly for businesses looking to prepare themselves for a sale, and yet it is so often overlooked. 

Whilst the rewards are often significant, strategies to improve the organisation’s working capital position invariably take time to both formulate and successfully implement.
