It's a Cash Flow Issue

Which Makes It a Great Time to Resolve Your Taxes!

We’ve all heard the statistics on small business failure.  But Why? 

2/3 survive 2 years – 1/2 survive 5 years – 1/3 survive 10 years

About 80% fail due to Cash Flow Problems.  This doesn’t mean the business isn’t profitable. It can mean a lot of things; because Cash Flow isn’t a simple in and out transaction.  It’s a complex system that can get bogged down by an unexpected blockage in the pipeline.
  • No Pay / Slow Pay Receivables
  • Growth and Inventory Takes $$
  • Material Costs Increase
  • Health Issues, Natural Disasters, the list goes on

    • Stick to paying your set IRS payment and use your Cash Flow for Growth, Savings…, or 
    • Make additional, Voluntary Payments toward your IRS debt, applying them in your best interest

While each Cash Flow situation is unique to the business, the IRS Collection process is not.  The IRS has a definite procedure to follow whether a business has a Cash Flow blockage or not, and it won’t wait for your Cash Flow to get back on track.
