Cashflow and Financial Viability in the Current RTO Environment

22 January 2020

The regulatory focus on financial viability (FV) has increased significantly over the last 12-18 months in terms of what you are required to submit and the level of review. Cashflow has become a major issue for many providers and outcomes are influenced by numerous financial factors.

Understanding these factors and managing them is critical for financial viability! This webinar will explore the factors of funding, profitability, invoice timing, invoice collection, other funding and payments and how they can be managed proactively.

The FV process will be discussed from a regulatory perspective and will highlight some potentially surprising commercial applications. It will explore what you can do to improve your RTO's bottom line and financial health.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Was it a coincidence that the financial viability requirements were tightened up at the same time cash for RTO’s got tighter?
  • We will discuss how cash got tighter in the RTO environment
  • Other terminology and definitions
  • An overview of the FVRA Tool and its objectives
  • Consider the commercial applications of the FVRA Tool
  • How can profit and cash flow be improved
