Now more than ever, small businesses are booming across Australia. Against all odds during the pandemic, the number of businesses entering the market went up by 3.8% in 2020. From tech firms to clothing stores, over 360,000 businesses opened their doors during this strange time.
But that’s only one part of the story. The number of businesses closing their stores increased as well. Over 275,000 businesses exited the market during 2020.
The Causes for Failed Businesses
While every business owner dreams of establishing a successful business, it’s evident from the numbers above that that is not always the case. Failed businesses wound up making the same mistakes due to:
- Lack of funding
40% of businesses struggle to manage their cash flow. As such, business owners fail to keep track of their spending and profits. That often leads to an over or underestimations of profits which jeopardizes businesses.
- Poor planning and execution
44% of businesses struggle with managing the many aspects of their enterprise. Unfortunately, many businesses fall short in developing and executing effective business strategies.
- Inexperience managing a business
Running a business requires balancing a multitude of tasks. Hiring, finances, purchasing necessities, the list goes on. Lacking the knowledge or experience of running a business often leads to feeling overwhelmed.
