Cash Flow Options for Business

This is a good time of year to examine your cash flow. Even if your sales are good, you still have to make sure the money is actually coming in on the schedule you need to meet your expenses and, hopefully, build up cash reserves.

If your cash flow could use a boost – and let’s face it, you would have lots of company – First Financial has several options you might want to consider. One is a line of credit. A very helpful option that’s there when you need it, many businesses access lines of credit to stem the effects of slow receivables or other short-term cash flow issues.

Personal credit is also an option for many business owners. You will need three years’ worth of both business and personal tax returns, and lenders will definitely take a keen interest in your business plan – since that tells a lot about how prepared you are to maintain business success and put yourself in a position to make your payments.

The good news here is that credit unions don’t simply pass judgment on your business plan. We help you with it. Our members are our owners, and we’re here to help make them more successful. So if we see issues with your business plan, our priority is to help address them so you can be more successful.

If you have a commercial mortgage, you might also consider refinancing it at today’s relatively low interest rates as a way of freeing up some capital on a month-to-month basis. That could make the difference in your ability to make crucial capital investments – perhaps an important piece of equipment or a technology upgrade that will allow you to win or successfully execute an opportunity for growth.

As the economy rebounds, many companies have a need to make fresh investments in employees, products and technology. Often, the state of your cash flow determines whether you can make these investments or will have to hold off. Talk to us about customized lending solutions that will allow you to shore up your cash flow and strengthen your business. We’re here to support your success!  Contact Business Development at business@firstffcu.com.
