Cash Flow Forecasting

Cash is the lifeblood of your business. The payment terms of most contracts means that work is usually paid in arrears, so it is important that Clients and Contractors what their liabilities are and when they are likely to be paid.

BCL provide cash flow forecasts which are easily understood and updated regularly.

Valuations & Payments

Construction contracts are generally for a defined period of time and, in certain circumstances, can be for a duration of a number of years. The contractor will require monies during the course of the works in order to remain financially secure.

BCL can therefore ensure accurate valuations are made for the purpose of ascertaining the amount due in an interim certificate from the Employer to the Contractor.

BCL can also monitor payments made by Employers and react immediately should these not be within the Contract terms.
