Check in with your business
When evaluating what you may need for your business consider the following:
- How do your customers want to pay? What challenges have you faced handling mobile, credit card, and check payments?
- What delays do you experience from receipt of credit card payment from your customer to available funds in your bank account?
- What upgrades or remodeling plans do you have to differentiate your business from others in the area and national competitors?
- How do daily and seasonal changes in customer traffic affect your cash flow?
- How do your payment terms with vendors affect your operations and cash flow?
- What difficulties do you face in paying staff, payroll taxes, and reporting?
