3 Options for Tackling Your Business Debts

How You Can Reduce Your Business Debt

Similarly to personal debt, there are always steps you can take and options available should you find yourself struggling with business debt. Before you implement a turnaround strategy or book a formal insolvency appointment, try these tips first.

Prioritise Your Debts

Identify what you can afford and when. Setting up a budget can help you understand your current cash flow situation as well as help you identify which debts should be dealt with first.

Take Action Sooner Rather than Later

It’s important to tackle the problem as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the harder it will be to resolve.

Assess Your Current Situation

You’ll need to make a list of all the money you owe and all the money you are owed so you can assess your current financial situation. If you haven’t done so yet, consider setting up a bookkeeping system, or hire a bookkeeper or accountant to help you manage the business’ finances.

Negotiate With Your Creditors

Get in touch with the creditors you owe money to and see if you can come to an agreement to avoid penalties. Let them know your current circumstances and discuss your options such as payment plans, financial hardship provisions and potential extensions to payment dates.

Get in Touch With Your Bank

Often banks are able to give you some assistance. Contact your bank to discuss your situation, their financial hardship provisions and other options to help you get your business finances back under control.

Chase Up Any Unpaid Invoices

Following up on late payers or non-paying customers can potentially bring in some much-needed income to help the business get back on track.
