Cash Flow Problem (Creative Letter)

Introduction

Date: 18/12/09 From: Richa To: Manuel, the owner of Gardener's Green Topic: Cash flow problem Your company (Gardener's Green) is clearly facing a cash flow problem because the cash flow of a business is the cash inflows and outflows over a period of time, and we produced a graph to see your forecasted sales revenue each month and it showed that your company does have a cash inflow but it's only for certain months: April, May and September but during the months: January, February and March your cash inflow is at its least.

According to me, I think the most beneficial solution to the cash flow problem would be to ask a longer credit from your suppliers as there would be no harm in doing so. Also another thing you should do is lease the land out in winter months as that is one of your main problem because you do not get much cash inflow during winter months and this solution could solve the problem of low cash inflow during winter months. ...read more.
