Functioning your business in a smooth manner is not a simple task. It requires a lot of hard work and determination and also team work and effort to achieve the smooth functioning of business activities. You will need to take care of many things when trying to achieving the smooth functioning. But when a business does achieve this level, operating beyond that is not a very hard task.
You will need to get the accounting books in order. The books should be maintained at zero mistake levels. It would be ideal if you could have a computerized accounting system in place. Then you will be able to do the accounting in a proper and more accurate manner. Unless you have all the necessary accounting details in order and accurately, management decisions and strategic planning’s will be hard to plan and execute.
Your working capital will be a deciding factor on whether or not your business will continue to operate. Registering company is not sufficient to be in business. You need to ensure that you have a good working capital to smoothly function your business. If you run out of working capital for your business you may finally end up with no option other than liquidating your business. In order to get your business to function smoothly you need to extend your payment dates with suppliers and reduce the collection period of debts from your own debtors. And make sure you have a very healthy level of working capital in hand.
Financing your business activities properly is another very important aspect of running your business smoothly. Just because you receive a large amount as profit in the books doesn’t mean that, that money has actually reached you. If you go and buy an asset for that value and tie up the cash in hand and finally you have to deal with credit notes and returns you will be in a pool of mess. So you need to first wait until the money gets realized from the profits. It might even take more than 3 months depending on your credit limit. It is a good idea to be opening a corporate bank account in Singapore, and getting your debtors to transfer to that account. You will then be able to easily view only the incoming money deposits for the business through sales.
Finally, to function smoothly the most vital thing is maintain excellent relationships with all your stakeholder parties. Whether it is suppliers or customers or even your employees there should be a good mutual understanding between all. And they should all work towards achieving a common goal. That is the goal and objective of the organization.
