Where did my Profit go?
|Posted on November 5, 2014 at 1:44 AM||comments ()|
-Understanding the Myth of Profits.
As a Business Owner, Have you ever wondered why you cannot seem to get hold of your profit? Most Business Owners ask the question....." I see that I made a Net Profit of $XXX, but where is it? ".We have been looking at the topic of profit making, and this topic is a great mystery in Businesses.
We agree that making Profit is a good thing and a negative profit (Loss) is not a good one; however, the mind game begins when there is profit, but no money in the Checking account. Do you also wonder why you don't go out of Business, when your Profit & Loss Statement keeps showing a negative profit (Loss)?
The Answer is simple: PROFIT IS NOT CASH.
The most important fact to remember about Profit is that, Profit has no connection to how much Cash is in the bank. A Profit and Loss Statement shows the movement of transactions, which occur in your Business for any given period (monthly), and the total net effect of these transactions constitute the balance that you see on your reports.
An Example is when you enter a Business transaction, and an invoice amount of $3,000 is created in your Books, your Profit and Loss Statement shows the Sale and Resulting Net Profit, but there is NO CASH, until the invoice is paid; this money remains in your Account, only for a period of time, because when you pay your vendors or make your Bill Payments/Loan Payments, the money is being used up.
Let's take a Loan Payment as another example; Most Business Owners forget that only the interest portion of a Loan Payment appears on a Profit & Loss Statement, while the Principal portion of the transaction occurs on the Balance Sheet. In this case, another portion of profit has been used to pay the principal.
In conclusion, It's not Magic...........It's just having a basic understanding of how transactions occur in your Business and its effect on your Profit & Loss Statement, as well as your Balance Sheet. The Ultimate Goal is to make better financial decisions. However, take Note, You can be profitable and still be broke (Did I hear someone scream?). Turning Profit into Cash is the secret to managing your Net Profit Balances.
Our Next Newsletter will feature, how you can turn your Profits into Cash; if you need help with understanding your financial reports, why don't you give us a call? We would be glad to help you.
What do you expect your Profit to be this Year?
|Posted on October 7, 2014 at 1:17 AM||comments ()|
Profitability is a key driver of financial success in business. The goal of every Business owner should be to make profit and improve their business to make it better.
If you were having a discussion, one year from today, and looking over your financials, Will you be happy with your financial progress? This question should propel you to take action, about what you expect your profit to be for the year.
Profit is like a car,that must be driven; it does not drive itself; for you to get a projected profit, you have to be on top of your profit expectations. I have listed some questions, which should stimulate you to focus on an expected profit, as the year is coming to an end:
As you go through these questions, you're painting a picture of what your financial success should look like, and this will lead you to action, for an end result. Having a picture requires taking action to actualize your projected expectations. These steps below will help you achieve your financial profit picture, feel free to put them into practice and see the transformation, it brings to your business:
1) Have a Target Goal: You need to have a financial goal for your business at the beginning of every year. The Goal can be broken into monthly, quarterly and semi-annual financial targets. It is advisable and easier to have a monthly target.
2) Monitor your Progress: Once you set your financial goals, you will need to monitor your progress, against your target every month. You can only monitor your progress by examining your monthly financial reports (Profit & Loss/ Balance Sheet Reports). If you have not been preparing your report, this should be a good time to start.
3) Adjust: At the end of every month, you need to review your target goal against your actual results (financial reports), and decide if you need to make changes, in your business, to achieve your targets. The changes can be in form of reducing an expense category to putting a plan in place for faster accounts receivables process.
This is the secret to creating your financial success for your business. I challenge you to put these into action and watch your business achieve your desired projected profit.
Do you need help with interpreting your financial reports? Perhaps you are yet to prepare your financial reports for the year, and don't have an idea of your actual profit; Call us NOW for further consultation and Assistance.
We will be glad to help you.

Tips for Managing Your Business Cash Flow.
|Posted on August 5, 2014 at 2:49 AM||comments ()|
It's already the eighth month of the Year, We are gradually getting to the end of the year, and soon it will be time for Year End Reports. In our last Newsletter, We discussed the concept of Cash Flow and how it affects our Business Operations; this month, we will be looking at tips to manage our Business Cash Flow.
Being in Business for yourself is like being an Air traffic controller, especially in the area of cash flow management ; You can imagine trying to control 100 Airplanes landing simultaneously on two runways; this can be an upheaval task, but we regularly see clients line up their monthly bills, their projected income, business projects and business expenses and try to combine all these activities, at the same time, trying to ensure a steady cash flow into the business; you can imagine, the projected outcome, if all these activities are not properly coordinated.
Cash Flow is the heartbeat of every Business, and if a Business does not have the cash on hand to pay their vendors, they will definitely run into problems. The main Cash Flow Problem, that Business Owners face is as a result of Lack of Creative Cash Management. Below are some Tips to overcome the Ups and Downs of Cash Flow Problems in your Businesses:
1) Always Schedule All Payments: Most Business Owners line up their monthly bills, compile them, sit down and issue all the checks and set up Bill Payments at once; but the trick is to have a " Holding Pattern". It is advisable to schedule each payment, in order to get to your vendors in a timely landing, without affecting other Cash Flow activities.
Every Business has Three (3) tiers of Checks Disbursements Groupings:
a) Must Pay Group- These are payments that can hurt you, either in cost or ability to operate your business, if they are not paid. These include items like Taxes, Rents, Payroll and Service Charges.
b) Important to Pay Group - These are payments, that have a reasonable grace period, and if not paid, a financial penalty can be incurred, as a result of Nonpayment. These include Utility Bills , Credit Card Payments and Insurance Payments .
c) Flexible Payment Plan Group - Suppliers, Vendors and Wholesalers, that supply most Small Businesses are the best sources of flexible credit financing. Most of them will continue to work with you, if you arrange a regular payment plan with them.
2) Make Payments on your Revenue, not on uncollected Sales : I am sure, that none of us will want to land a plane, hoping that the runway is beneath us in the fog bank, as also Business owners, it is not advisable to make projected payments on uncollected revenue. You may wander, what happens to Credit Facilities, Guess What, Most Credit Facilities still have a timeline for payment.
3) Do not use Payroll Taxes to float your Business Operations: Studies have shown that most Business Owners use the Tax liabilities, collected during payroll, to float their businesses, rather than remitting the payments to the appropriate Tax Authorities. They don't realize that they spend more in potential penalties, fees , interests, time and aggravation, if they engage in this act. Tax Liabilities grow, if they are not remitted at the appropriate timing.
4) Establish Relationships with your Credit Provider: It is very important for every business owner to plan for a rainy day. Having a great relationship with a vendor, that gives you a credit facility, avoids cash flow storms, which might bring in a sense of desperation or lack of control.
5) Invest in a Good Bookkeeping/ Accounting Service: It is important for Business Owners to have a grasp of their cash flow and understand the effect on their business growth. A Good Bookkeeping service is invaluable to your business, particularly in preparing your monthly financial reports and cash flow statements, which will help you, see how your Business is doing as well as maintaining your Business Cash flow.
Understanding and Managing Cash flow has been a challenge for many Business owners, but with the application of these tips, it is possible to grow your Business to a greater level , and also have enough funds for other activities, that will bring more revenue into your Business.
