Common Cash Flow Problems faced by Business’s

In this article we point out common problems faced by small business and smart solutions to help the managers.

MSMEs are the backbone of the Indian economy, and these businesses sometimes face cash flow problems due to insufficient liquid cash to cover liabilities. Often, MSMEs approach banks for loans that may take over a month. Or, may be the small to medium businesses face loan rejection to various reasons.

With so much buzz in the business, it’s challenging to keep up with formalities of the banks. So, to solve the issue and to maintain continuous cash flow, reliable NBFCs like Red Fort Capital provide immediate financial help and approve loans within 24 hours.


1. Too Much Inventory

The Problem

For business, maintaining inventory is one of the most critical tasks. It’s the first step towards success, but non-management of inventory can lead to cash flow problems. Businesses often over-invest in inventory, which may cause trouble if sales don’t cover investment costs.

The price to create each item is more than what you paid your supplier for it. Having extra stock is helpful, but loading inventory without proper evaluation leads to loss.

The Solution

The solution to overcome inventory problems is by managing inventory properly. However, if the scenario affects your cash flow, you can contact Red Fort Capital, which offers quick inventory purchases loans. The terms are quite flexible and straightforward. This will help you avoid debts raised from inventory billings.

2. Overtrading

The Problem

It’s good news for any business if they’re growing rapidly. But, over-trading often gets in the way of healthy cash flow. As you expand your business rapidly, you have to spend more money.

It may include developing workforces, wages, raw materials, inventory, advanced tools etc., so meeting customers’ demand while spending more on the backend process disrupts the cash flow.

The Solution

With working capital loans, you can easily restore cash flow when you are overwhelmed by rapid sales growth. At Red Fort Capital, your loan to overcome the cash shortage will be approved within 24 hours. In addition, you don’t have to visit our office with a bundle of documents.

3. Low Trading in Off-Season

The Problem

Generally, many businesses have high sales in peak season and maintain a stable cash flow. But, during the off-season, the cash flow suffers severely due to no sales. This affects and slows down overall growth significantly.

The Solution

Business owners can apply for term loans to deal with cash flow problems during the off-season. It is a popular form of financing for MSMEs. Red Fort Capital provides the business with funding in exchange for cash or valuable assets.

So, as soon as you have met your needs, you can choose the repayment options based on your income in the peak season. The process is quick, effortless and helps you deal with a temporary cash-flow shortage.

4. Late Receivables

 The Problem

One of the most common and complicated problems is late receivables. Cash flow may be negatively affected because you do not receive your payment until a fixed period. In addition, costs for raw materials, labour, and inventory are not recovered until you receive full payment.

The Solution

You can manage the cash flow problem due to late payments by utilising the advantage of receivable financing. It takes out a loan against its invoice assets. Thus, if you have the right bills, future projects, and current bills, you can get beneficial loans to bring your cash flow back on track. One of the most practical advantages of taking a loan from Red Fort Capital is that it can be approved within 24 hours, and expert advice is provided.

Support contractors, subcontractors, and businesses in the construction industry often face cash flow problems.
