Australia and the Global Recovery: How Your Business Can Prepare

By Key Factors - Jul 06 2021

In spite of the incredibly difficult year behind us, Australia’s economy has started to make a recovery. Consumer spending is expected to grow strongly in 2021-22 and assist Australia’s economic recovery, according to Deloitte Latest Access Economics retail forecasts.

Still, there are challenges ahead for many Australian businesses. We will continue to hear of job losses and business closures now that JobKeeper has ended and businesses are once again expected to fulfil ATO obligations.  Companies of all sizes across industries need to have a strategy in place to ensure they have the money on hand to pay their taxes, retain their employees, connect with their customers, and grow their business. For many, this strategy can include cash flow financing.

Preparing for Recovery

Virus mutations continue to be a concern as countries around the world cautiously open their economies, but it is expected that vaccines will help keep those mutations at bay.  In Australia, vaccines could help us achieve herd immunity by the end of the year or early 2022. 

While the global economy is making a swift comeback, led by Asia, it’s important to note this looks very different from industry to industry.  Oil prices have recovered to pre-pandemic levels already, while border closures and travel restrictions continue to impact the tourism, arts, and hospitality industries, and likely to continue to do so for quite some time. In Australia, international travel (both in and out) may not reach its pre-pandemic levels until 2024. 

During the pandemic, the businesses that were able to maintain cash flow were able to survive. In this phase, it’s about increasing cash flow to take the next steps forward.  Whether it is re-hiring employees, increasing inventory levels, launching new marketing campaigns, or ramping up operations.  Cash flow financing can aid with injecting the cash your business needs to plan for the recovery.

How to use Cash Flow Financing to Take Your Business Forward

Different companies use cash flow financing for different purposes. It depends upon your position in this post-pandemic economy and what your priorities are to take your business forward. There are lot of ways to put that cash flow to use:
