Maybe you're in it for the money, maybe not - but no matter why you're in business, cash is the lifeblood of your company. In the worst scenario, poor cash flow management can spell the end of your venture. However even in less extreme cases, it can still be damaging, as finding yourself unable to pay your suppliers, landlords or employees even once can put a long-term strain on your business relationships.
As a small business owner, the chances are you already have enough on your plate without outside influences threatening the smooth-running of your company. Therefore the continued disruption caused by the London tube strike is no doubt a real headache for London-based small businesses. With business leaders warning that the continued action could cost London's economy £200 million, there is cause for concern for anyone based locally.
