Cash Flow: Tackle the Problem That Kills 82% of Failed Businesses

Cash Flow: Tackle the Problem That Kills 82% of Failed Businesses

Have you ever worried about running out of cash? Unexpected bills? Getting paid? It’s a phenomenon that most people who have never run a business have a hard time understanding: That a seemingly healthy business, even one that is both profitable and growing, can go bankrupt.

The explanation comes down to what’s known to accountants and business people as a cash flow problem. We know that the majority of small businesses fail within the first five years, but a recent study by U.S. Bank drilled down into the reasons why this occurs. In their study, they found that 82% of the time, poor cash flow management or poor understanding of cash flow contributes to the failure of a small business. That is one out of every four businesses!
