How to Avoid Debt in Your Business

Have you ever felt so stressed about your business’s debt and cash flow that you can’t sleep at night? If you answered ‘yes’, then you’re not alone!

A recent MYOB study found that 45% of business owners surveyed reported suffering work-related anxiety in the past 12 months – and a lot of that stress and anxiety is centred around the financial performance of their businesses.

Unpaid invoices, outstanding debt, and cash flow issues can cripple businesses of all sizes, but there are several actionable steps that you can take to protect your business – and get a good night’s sleep.

Angela McDonald from Optimum Recoveries – in partnership with Samantha Goddard from STG Legal – will be presenting an unmissable workshop at Brisbane Business Hub. Together, Angela and Sam will talk you through some simple tools business owners can use to avoid debt and get paid faster.

Learn how debt prevention can protect your business – and your sanity – in this in-person presentation in partnership with the Brisbane Business Hub.

While starting a new business can be an incredibly exciting time, it can also be daunting once you realise how many financial implications are involved. The last things you need are customer and client accounts littered with overdue payments, slowly festering away at your business’ foundations. You’ve worked too hard to get to this point, so don’t let some questionable partnerships ruin everything you have worked so hard for.

In this informative session, you will learn how to:

  • Create watertight Terms and Conditions that will safeguard your business from bad debt
  • Build solid foundations in your processes and procedures that will ensure your business is protected
  • Develop sound credit applications
  • Conduct credit checks on clients and partners so you know you are collaborating with people you can trust
