Tips For Managing Small Business Finances

Managing your small business finances can be a daunting task. You’re probably still trying to get your company off the ground, and there are so many other things to focus on. But if you don’t take the time to manage your finances well, it will affect everything else in your business—and you don’t want that!

So what are some soft tips for managing small business finances? We’ve got them right here:

Keep track of everything. 

There are so many moving parts in running a small business that it’s easy to lose track of what’s going on, especially if you’re juggling several jobs at once. That’s why it’s so important to keep track of everything that happens in your company: sales, expenses, cash flow and even customer service calls or emails. You’ll never regret knowing exactly what’s happening with your business!


Monitor cash flow closely. 

If you’re not careful about how much money is coming in and going out, it can be easy for your finances to spiral out of control. Make sure you know exactly how much money is coming in each month before you pay out any bills or make any purchases—and then stick to those numbers! Even if it means waiting until next month for that new equipment upgrade or hiring an employee, do whatever it takes to stay within budget!

Get organized. 

This is the most important thing you can do when it comes to managing small business finances. If you’re not staying organized, everything else is going to fall apart! Write down all of your expenses and income on spreadsheets (you can get them online or at an office supply store), and keep them updated with every transaction. Make sure that all of this information is easily accessible so that whoever needs it can access it quickly and easily whenever they need it.


Get an accountant if at all possible.

This may be hard if you’re trying to keep costs down, but there are a few things accountants can do that are so valuable that they’re worth the money: they’ll help you file taxes correctly and on time (which can save thousands), they’ll make sure that all of your financial records are organized properly (so when you need them, they’re easy to find), and they can also help with other types of operations management like payroll or HR issues. Accountants are worth their weight in gold—don’t skimp on this one. 


Find a balance between spending and saving.

This is one of the most important things you can do in your business, and it’s something that will help you out in the long run. It’s important to have money saved up so that you’re not constantly worried about running out of funds, but it’s also crucial to spend wisely on your business as well. If you aren’t careful, you could end up wasting a lot of money on unnecessary expenses or buying things that aren’t useful to your business. Make sure that everything you spend money on has a purpose and is helping your company grow.


Don’t be afraid to charge more than your competitors.

If your products or services are better than what other businesses offer, then don’t be afraid to charge more for them! It might take some time for people who are used to paying less for similar products or services to pay more for yours, but if the quality is there, they will eventually come around. After all, if someone wants something badly enough then they’ll pay whatever price is necessary in order to get it (unless they’re broke).

Whatever you do, don’t sit on your hands when it comes to financial management. Whether you work with a professional or tackle it yourself. Taking a few minutes each day to stay on top of the numbers will give you better odds of succeeding, and maybe even make you feel like you have a handle on your future. Like a wise man said to me; Business is war, be nice but ressilient, be stingy with business funds and whatever profit you make, always remit it and then you pay yourslef afterwards.

Yours in Financial Independence, Temitope.
