With investment firms still looking to deploy large amounts of money, competition for deals continues to be fierce.

Its one of the most gut-wrenching moments for any business owner or executive (and we have all been there!) – the moment when you realize that revenue from a job or a sale was less than it should have been … and through nobody’s fault but your own. Any small or midsize business looking to survive for the long haul must make sure that it gets paid full value for the product or service it provides. Yet in many SMBs, simple human error often results in a revenue pipeline with more holes than a sprinkler hose.

Like many finance executives, Terry Lillis, CFO of Principal Financial Group, is tired. The constant stream of guidance from regulators and accounting standard-setters -- plus the expected inflow of more to come over the next few years -- has created "huge accounting fatigue" among his finance staff, he told a roomful of finance chiefs at the CFO Rising conference in Orlando this week. In fact, he put employee fatigue at the top of his list of concerns for 2010.

Numerous regulatory proposals aim to reverse the ebb in small-business lending. But will any of them actually work? Vincent Ryan, CFO.com | US March 5, 2010 How can access to capital be improved for small businesses so they can create jobs and accelerate the economic recovery?

One of the critical keys to managing your company’s receivables is to measure and control your Day Sales Outstanding, the average number of days your company takes to collect sales revenue. Treat a high DSO number as a red flag -- it means you’re taking too long to collect revenue and extending credit to customers with an overly generous hand. Controlling Credit

Predicting future cash flow plays a critical role in maintaining the company’s health, and yet many small businesses have no satisfactory forecasting mechanism in place. To some extent, this is understandable -- large corporations have more access to elaborate computer-generated data processes, while smaller companies must rely on intricate, well-coordinated interplay between department heads and senior management to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Reprinted with permission from www.WikiCFO.com Accounts receivable Turnover ratio indicates how many times the accounts receivable have been collected during an accounting period. It can be used to determine if a company is having difficulties collecting sales made on credit. The higher the turnover, the faster the business is collecting its receivables. It can be expressed in many forms including accounts receivable turnover rate, accounts receivable turnover in days, accounts receivable turnover average, and more.

Overdue receivables obviously have a major impact on your company's cash flow. If you don't have a clear, detailed, firm credit policy in place, expect customer confusion, resentment, and an ever-increasing gap between your receivables and your payables. Credit Where Credit Is Due To whom will you extend credit, and how will they qualify? Small businesses should run credit checks just as rigorously as the Fortune 500 companies do. Ask for financial statements, credit reports, and vendor or customer references.
