Managing business finance during the start-up phase



It can be a number of months before a new business is profitable and generating a cash surplus. You may need alternative sources of income during this period, if only to cover your outgoings. If your start-up business does make a profit, you may want to re-invest it to help your business develop.

Careful planning and the right advice can make this transitional start-up phase much easier to manage. A financial adviser can help you address these issues further.

This guide gives advice on how to keep your business afloat in the early days of starting up. It will help you forecast your personal financial needs, reduce your spending, take steps to cut business costs and find other sources of business income.
