Cash forecasting

Managing COVID-19 related cash pressures

Businesses, particularly the micro, small and medium enterprises, are vulnerable to the continuing outbreak. We are uncertain on how long this will last and how far are we to getting businesses back to normal operations. 

Each day, more and more organizations face significant operational, financial and liquidity challenges as obligations to pay employees, rent and other fixed costs remain. During these uncertain times, it is critical that businesses develop a robust cash forecast in the short term. Guarding liquidity is important and businesses need to immediately develop mitigating actions to reduce regressive financial impact and manage cash pressures.

 

How can PwC help?

At PwC, we can support you in these critical scenarios by providing a clear visibility on your cash position and provide a platform for informed decisions on cash conservation activities. 

We can help you in:

  • Determining the minimum cash requirements based on historical cash trends and funding limitations

  • Assessing available and restricted cash

  • Identifying potential key risks to liquidity

  • Preparing a short term rolling 13-week cash flow forecast

Signs to look for

  • Are you experiencing liquidity issues in your business operations? 

  • Are there inefficiencies in moving and selling inventories given the enhanced community quarantine in various areas in the country?

  • Does the Company have trouble collecting payment from customers who are also under cash pressure?

  • Are there difficulties in servicing debt due to low cash reserves, and/or limited payment channels?
  • Do you have existing loan facilities with banks or financial institutions and at risk of potential breaches in covenants?
