You can barely keep up with your monthly expenses, and your business debt has you on the verge of bankruptcy. However, there are ways to help reduce your debts and regain control of your business finances. As an entrepreneur, you know maintaining financial health is crucial as you try to build your business over time, so the sooner you take these steps, the better off you are in the long run.

Today, we share six ways to get your business out of debt and start improving its long-term financial health so that your company can succeed in the future.

1. Understanding What Type of Debts You Have

To get out of debt, you need to understand your debt and costs. For example, if your business has multiple loans with different interest rates, Funding Circle notes that it may be wise to consolidate loans into one loan with a lower interest rate. If your company is struggling financially, it may also be time to consider bankruptcy protection or other legal options that can help reduce your overall financial burden.

2. Building a Budget

Before you can get out of debt, you need a plan — or at least a good idea — of where your money is going. Start with a simple budget. Write down all your income and expenses, and see where you stand. You may be surprised at how much money is slipping through your fingers. Dumb Funded suggests to then look for ways to cut back so that it all balances out.

3. Increasing Revenue

It’s one thing to be in debt, but it’s another thing if you can’t generate a profit. Focus on increasing revenue before making any changes to expenses or payroll. Spend some time brainstorming new ways to monetize your business, and think about implementing these ideas over time so that you don’t put too much strain on your company all at once.

4. Sharpening Your Business Skills

If you’re doing work for your business, you must stay on top of your finances. Consider enrolling in online accounting programs to improve your business skills. Whether you study marketing, economics, finance, or business ethics, returning to school and completing an accounting degree may help you improve your business — and best of all, thanks to the flexibility of online programs, you can keep working while you study!

5. Effective Invoicing Process

Ensure you have an effective invoicing system so that you get paid fast and on time. Invoicing and accounting software can include tools to help you bill your customers effectively. It can also help you track expenses and inventory to help make sure that your business stays on firm financial footing.

6. Revisiting Your Business Structure

Since each structure has different pros and cons, having the right business structure is critical to the success of your business. That means it’s a good idea from time to time to revisit your business’s current structure and see if you need to make a change.

Better Financial Health

Getting out of debt may seem daunting, but if you stay committed, it’s possible. By using all these tactics in combination, including increasing revenue, revisiting your business structure and making any required changes, you can work toward better financial health for your business.
