Funding our business properly

By Bala | Bala | 28 May 2024

If we are into business, we must have a good cash flow. We have to keep getting funds to pay the employees and cover the business's expenses. Anything after that will be the profit share for the business. It is not an easy thing to get a steady flow of funds. Companies that are dependent on projects for their regular cash flow can find it a hard time to keep getting clients and keeping them active. During the time when the projects are slow, it is important to pay the salaries of the employees.

Be it a new company or new business or an old business, this has been the case for a very long time. Multiple sources of income for the business are very important. This way even if one avenue gets closed, another avenue can be used to fund the business and the employees. I have seen people sharing their frustration when the company head does not pay on time. Who will like it if the payment is not made on time? That's why financial management is very important.


Keeping backup funds

During the Covid time, many companies struggled to pay their employees when the business was not very great. Some companies managed to pay half and some companies compensated after the Covid was over. Some companies were not disturbed and they were able to pay continuously without any problems. This is where having backup funds plays a very important role. Sridhar Vembu the head of the Zoho group of companies said that he has funds for 3 years to pay his employees. This is a very big thing. Securing funds to pay the employees during the bad times is very important. I have also seen one of my other friends tell me that they have enough funds with them to pay the members of their team even during tough times.

Covering company expenses with interest

Having a huge amount of money in savings is one good thing for the company. The interest from the money saved in the bank itself is good to take care of the expenses. My company used to do this once where the salary of individuals gets credited on the 20th of every month. The money is transferred from the main branch to the local bank account. The local company does a deal with the banks to provide interest for holding the funds for nearly 10 days every month. The sum accumulated from that is huge and usually sufficient to cover all the expenses. This is one of the biggest strategies followed by people who maintain an offshore team.


Financial management for business

This can look like a generic topic to discuss but financial management is a crucial topic for discussion. The main reason is that only with the help of proper savings, we will be able to run a successful business. At the same time, we have to keep everyone happy so that they are enthusiastic about working in the company. Suppose a company has a good product and a lot of users using the product. In that case, the funding can happen in such a way that the companies sponsoring can take care of the operational cost and that can even become a good source of passive income.
