How to Benefit from Cash Conversion Cycle (CCC)

How fast can you grow your business? This depends on how well you convert your sales into cash-in-hand. Is this conversion slow? You will need cash from other sources to fund your growth in sales volume and pay expenditures. Some expenditures will be for goods and services, others for capital items. The Cash Conversion Cycle assesses how you are going. It is an important metric for fast growing businesses. Blue Belt

Overhead Margin Analysis Explained

Overhead Margin relates to Overhead Costs, which are the costs in your business that do not change directly with a change in your Revenue and/or a change in your Cost of Goods Sold (COGS).

They include such things as:

  • Rent, insurance.
  • Interest.
  • Salaries of permanent staff.
  • Administration costs in general; telephone, office costs.
  • Some elements of the sales process that are not directly related to your Sales Revenue.

These Overhead Costs tend to grow over time and may lead to inefficiencies in your business. This is due to activities no longer being relevant to your business but remain as a cost. 12Faces has several tools for helping to remove these “barnacles” that detract from your Operating Profit. Yellow Belt
