Cash outflows - definition: Payments is cash made by a business, such as those to suppliers and employees.

The longer this cycle takes to complete, the more working capital a business will need.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CASH FLOW

CASH INFLOWS AND OUTFLOWS

Cash is always important - short-term and long-term. Cash flow relates to the timing of payments to workers and suppliers and receipts from customers. if a business does not plan the timing of these payments and receipts carefully, it may run out of cash even though it is operating profitably. If suppliers and creditors are not paid in time, they can force a business into liquidation of its assets if it appears to be insolvent. Note: Cash is not the same as profit. It is very common for profitable businesses to run short of cash. On the other hand, loss-making businesses can have high cash inflows in the short-term. The diagram on the right explains the links between cash inflows - in the form of revenues - and cash outflows - the costs of production. Working capital is what keeps a business solvent.

3.7 CASH FLOW: SUMMARY POWERPOINT NOTES

EXAM TIPS! 1.

When answering an exam question about improving cash flow, just writing the firm should "increase sales" will not demonstrate a true understanding of the difference between sales revenue and cash flow.

2.

If you suggest "cutting staff and cheaper materials", this may reduce cash outflows, but what will be the negative impact on output, sales and future cash inflows? This suggestion will nearly always be inappropriate for an examination question about improving cash flow.
