SMALL TO MEDIUM ENTERPRISES
Business enterprises have elements to their financial situation that are unique. Some problems are new, with no real counterpart to personal finance. Other challenges are comparable, but bigger in scope.
Not everyone knows how to handle an SME’s unique financial position. Corporate competition has deeper pockets and more resources, and an SME needs to stand toe to toe with these entities. They need to have the same impact with fewer resources available.
A keen financial advisor is essential to planning and survival, particularly for resource allocation.
For owners of an SME, running the business can be rewarding but time-consuming. You may find yourself focusing too much on the day to day operations and not on the long-term finances. This opens you up to lots of risks, above and beyond the usual ones associated with an SME.
You might not be prepared to handle the loss of a partner. Small companies and partnerships can become crippled by losing just one of its founders. Even if the business is designed to survive it, it may find itself temporarily incapacitated.
The loss becomes more pronounced if the partner was crucial to normal operations.
Most SME owners do not plan for financial disaster. In fact, financial planning is usually inadequate. There are no strategies in place, no contingencies or resources to be implemented. While a small business does have a tight operating budget, this leaves them vulnerable to failure.
An SME may also find itself in the “grey area.” This is a situation where the company has found success at its first scale. It needs to expand, but the income is too small, and there are too few resources for them to do so. At the same time, if they do not grow, the business will slowly stagnate or fail.
