Financial management

The primary goal of being in business is to make a profit; every decision you make has a financial impact. Understanding the fundamentals of financial management will help you make decisions more confidently and avoid costly mistakes.

An important aspect of financial management is ensuring you have sufficient cash flowing into your business to offset expenses such as rent, employee wages and payments to suppliers. Developing an understanding of the factors you can manipulate to drive positive cash flow will help ensure your business is financially successful.

Developing a realistic budget and managing your legal requirements such as taxation payments and record keeping are also critical aspects of running a business.

Our financial management workshops will assist you to gain the confidence and expertise required to assess your business ideas and plan for long term financial health.

Please note: our workshops are open to small business owners in Western Australia only.
