As we head into the Christmas holiday season you are most likely looking forward to some relaxing times ahead, but one thing that should not be taking a break is your cash flow. Invariably there will be a blowout in your personal spending over the Christmas period on food, presents and holidays, while the normal household bills keep rolling in. It’s much the same for businesses. It can be all too easy in the busy lead-up to Christmas to let chasing bad debts and invoicing clients take a back seat. But if you don’t act now, you may not see any cash until February. Meanwhile your regular bills will still be coming in and wages will also need to be paid. So what can you do to make the holiday season financially stress free?
