……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

This multiple-choice question is suitable for Accounting KS5 classes.

The answer is 3

  1. Not correct – payments will be delayed which will reduce the amount of cash flowing into the business and worsen the cash flow position.
  2. Not correct – this will result in more cash leaving the business before it needs to which will put more pressure on cash flow.
  3. Correct – Cash flow is the movement of money in and out of a business. Electromac needs cash immediately to meet its day to day operations. Factoring will give immediate payment and therefore should ease cash-flow.
  4. Not correct – more cash will be tied up in inventory which will worsen the cash flow situation.
