Making profitable management decisions after the dry Part 1: Financial management

Recovering from drought is a challenging period, particularly as many businesses find themselves in a tight financial position. Proactive financial and business planning during this time will ensure your business is in the best position to return to a positive cash flow and profitable operation as quickly as possible.

  • Understanding your financial position – developing cash flow projections, identifying options to improve your cash flow
  • How to improve negotiations with your bank – what are the banks looking for?
  • Developing a business plan – what are the key components & where can I find additional support?
  • Planning for the future – medium-long term business planning
  • Financial assistance for recovery – what support is available through the drought relief assistance scheme and what are the eligibility requirements?
