Cost management and cutting your expenses


Operational costs will be one of the biggest areas of expenditure in your business.  And the more it costs you to produce your products and/or services, the smaller your end profit will be.

So, if you are going to promote positive cash flow and drive the best possible profit margins, you need to get serious about cost management and bringing down those operational expenses - And doing it in a systematic and methodical way.

A clear focus on cutting costs
With careful management of your operational costs, and the tactical use of accounting cost codes, you can work to clearly defined budgets and quickly improve your financial efficiency.

By focusing on cost reduction, you will:

  • Reduce your overall expenditure - by pruning back on unnecessary spending, negotiation costs with suppliers and closely monitoring your outgoings.
  • Improve your cash flow position - by reducing cash outflows and balancing the cash flow scales in favour of a more positive cash flow position.
  • Give overall profits a boost - by increasing the profit margin on your products/services and bringing in greater profits across the period.

  • "Nelly (my wife) told me she had signed up for some business training and I told her it was a waste of time and money. I wasn't interested in doing it at all because both our businesses are firing on all cylinders, but to show her support, I went along to the first workshop and I was impressed. Nelly and I have been doing a lot of talking, but we realised that we never had the right mindset to take action. - Read more
