Effective Cash Control

Control your cash, control your future

Cash flow and cash control are the lifeblood of any business, and your business could ‘survive or die’ based on its ability to successfully manage cash flow and profitability.

With the rapid increase in business digitisation and the shift to remote working, it is now estimated almost half of small businesses1 lack the appropriate internal controls to manage cash effectively and prevent fraud, which contributes to:

  • Slowing collection rates
  • Increasing bad debts 
  • Revenue leakage 
  • One of every three frauds committed in small business2

Effective Cash Control Diagnostic
Crowe Australasia has developed a diagnostic tool to help your business have a good handle on its cash now and into the future.

By conducting a maturity assessment of your cash controls, we can help provide valuable insight before things go wrong. Using our tool, your business can minimise or eliminate cash leakage or loss that may be systematic and unseen during stronger trading periods. You’ll also receive critical information on key cash related ratios compared to industry benchmarks. 

Upon completion we’ll present a series of key recommendations to help your business strengthen its controls across 10 core areas including cash flow forecasting, supplier and sales processes, expenditure monitoring and inventory.
