Cash Flow Services for Your Business

Cash flow management accounting based in Chicago can help your small or medium business anywhere in the country in many different sectors and industries. See what we can do for the part of the economy you participate in.

Retailers might have peak seasons where they get most of their profit but still have payroll and expenses the rest of the year, so managing cash flow is what keeps the doors open and the lights on.

Law firms that get involved with long and drawn-out proceedings or matters might put in many hours of billables before they actually get the revenue from them.

Construction businesses have to watch their cash flow at all times because they might put a lot of money into materials and labor long before they get paid for finishing a project or contract.

Not-for-profits have to operate their cash flow very tightly because if their revenue gets to be too profitable, they can actually lose their tax-advantaged status and wind up changing their entire operation.

  • Analysis of Your Needs

    We dive into comprehending your current financial situation as we study components ranging from credit terms and cash flow statements to inventory management and accounts payables/receivables.

  • Strategizing Your Cash Flow Management

    If you want to prevent cash flow problems from impacting your business, then you should think about forming a professional relationship with financial business partners who can come up with both short-term cash flow projections and long-term cash flow projections.
