The Top Five Reasons Small Businesses Fail

The Small Business Administration (SBA) statistics show that approximately 45,000 businesses close every month. And the top five reasons why small businesses fail include:

Revenue loss – a declining customer base, bad economy and slow or non-paying customers all contribute to revenue loss.

Lack of working capital – businesses with balance sheets that cannot support more than three months of operational expenses are often positioned for failure.

Poor management – when a company has ownership or management that lack the necessary business skills to operate the company well.

No credit – businesses that cannot qualify for a line of credit because of more restrictive lending policies often fail.

Economic climate – a poor economic climate is often to blame for business failure.
