HOW TO REBUILD YOUR BUSINESS AFTER COVID-19?

Share This Post

COVID-19 outbreak has not just weakened the health of humans rather it is worsening the economic growth all-round the globe. Big Corporates, MSME’s, MNC’s and the unorganised sector which are the drivers of the Indian economy are the ones worst affected. As per IMF statistics, the growth rate in Asia is likely to be stalled at 0% for the F.Y. 2020-21 which is the worst performance ever recorded in the past 60 years. Even during the times of global financial crises & Asian financial crises the growth performance of the Asian continent was 4.7% & 1.3% respectively.

How Do You Plan to Rebuild Your Business After COVID-19

Big corporates & MNC’s will revive and get their business back on track because they have various sources to generate fresh funds, which will help their business to gain momentum again. But tough times will come for MSME registrations, New company registrations & business in the unorganised sector. The only thing which differentiates between these two types of a business venture is the source of funds they possess and the management of these funds.

Having a post-lockdown strategic plan ready for your business will help to revive it from any major setbacks. If you don’t have a strategic plan for your business then it is the right time to think in that direction and revive your business from the effect of COVID-19.

Some points which we will analyze to bring your business on track:

1.            ASSESSMENT & IDENTIFICATION

Just as the doctor does before recommending any medicine to its patients, in the same manner, you must first diagnose the problem which your business is facing. Therefore assessment is the fundamental stage for the revival of your business. Check which area of your business is worst affected and find the best alternative solution for it.

Cost-benefit analyses of your business with the help of cash-flow statement, sources of revenue, and cost of customer acquisition will help you to maximize efficiency in the acquisition and utilization of financial resources. Consulting a chartered accountant will help you to reduce cost and save taxes.

Not just sales, revenue, profit & cash flows but also consider non-cash measures, which has affected your business such as; stock loss, customer loss, loss of goodwill in the market etc. these factors should also be factored in while computing the loses.

2.            RESTRUCTURING BUSINESS PLAN

The economy and the market will not be the same as it used to be earlier therefore it is imperative to bring some hair-cuts in your business structure. Analysing the complete trend in your the business industry will help you to devise a competitive strategy for your business.

3.            ADDITIONAL FUNDS

Unless you have a large chunk of liquid funds in your business available, you need to figure out the sources through which you can raise the funds for your business. It is most likely that most businesses, MSME Registration, Start-ups will face a huge shortage of working capital to kick-start their business. Since we know now that it’s a the tedious process to get your business loan sanctions from financial institutions and the long duration it takes to get the funds in your hands, therefore it is advisable to get all these preparations beforehand so that when the time arrives you do not need any extra time to arrange those funds.

Various modes of funding through financial institutions are:

•             Working capital financing

•             Inventory financing

•             Fixed capital financing

•             Business lines of credit

•             Other modes of financing

Even borrowing is competitive in the market and you cannot risk your business by borrowing funds from a non-competitive source. For example; suppose you have a loan from Bank A @10% whereas your competitor is having a loan from Bank B @ 9%. Even if you have a product/service of utmost quality you will not be able to compete because your funds are borrowed at a higher rate as compared to your competitor.

Every other option has different rates of interest applicable and each option have a different set of pros & cons attached to it. Let a financial domain expert and a chartered accountant who is also a provider of CA services online, decide this for you.

4.            SPECIFIED TIMELINE

“Unless you have defined time-line, you will always be lack of time”.

Prioritizing the work and setting a realistic timeline to achieve the goals is much needed in the times of COVID-19. Instead of taking the entire task, an ideal businessman should take step by step growth to achieve their business goals. Initially, your goal is to secure funds for your business and then only you can start your business operation so one must consider securing their funds as their priority.

During the initial period of COVID-19 recovery process looks at whether you are able to meet the specified timeline and check what is working in your plan and what needs modification.

5.            CONTINGENCY PLAN

This pandemic seems more like once in a lifetime event but in a business, there are certain external factors which will disrupt the smooth functioning of your business. So before any such situation arises in future a rational businessman must start to establish some safeguards to prevent their businesses from future shocks.

Such as establishing liquidity provisions, increase your online presence; clear your debt as early as possible, cutting down non-essential expenses etc. By making these changes you can not only secure your business from future crises but it will also improve your business functioning in contemporary times. Prepare your business plan A, B, C until your business future is secured.

Foreign Direct Investment

WHAT IS Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)?

Share This Post

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is an investment from a party in one country into the business/corporations of another country with the intention of having a “lasting interest”. Here the “lasting interest” is determined when the investing party acquires a share of at least 10% voting right in other organisation. Therefore, the element of control is the key differentiator between Foreign Direct Investment & Foreign portfolio investment (FPI).

According to the organisation of economic co-operation & development (OECD), an investment of 10% or above in the foreign country can be termed as a Foreign Direct Investment. FDI in India is regulated by the apex bank viz. Reserve bank of India (RBI) under the Foreign exchange management act, 2000 (FEMA).   

Since the liberalisation of the Indian economy in 1991, the climate of Investment has improved exponentially. This is more or else because of ease in FDI reforms across sectors. To attract a huge chunk of investors from outside, Government of India (GOI) has made policy of FDI in India in such a way that it is more transparent & easy to understand for any investors.

FDI in India is not just restricted to the movement of capital across borders but it also includes movement of other elements such as skills, technology, process & management etc.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF FDI?

On the basis of Investment-

  1. Horizontal FDI: When a business expands its operational activities in the same product/service to a foreign country then it is termed as Horizontal FDI. For example: If a local manufacturer in USA opens up their manufacturing branch in India, then this is a classic case of Horizontal FDI.
  2. Vertical FDI: When the style of your business activities is changed while investing in host country as compared to your home country. This could be to provide support service to their actual business or does not relate to it at all. For example: MacDonald’s opens up a meat production house in Australia to support their actual business of food restaurants in India.
  3. Conglomerate FDI: Acquiring an unrelated business in a foreign country. This is not commonly opted for because of certain barriers which are associated with this such as i) entering in a foreign country ii) unrelated industry & market iii) leaving comfort zone.

On the basis of entry routes-

These policies are different from region to region. Considering FDI in India, these are the two routes through which one can enter into Indian market.

1.Automatic route

Under this investment type of FDI in India, an entity does not need to take prior approval of the Government of India or the Reserve Bank of India, in all activities which are specified in the FEMA regulation number 16. This brings in convenience to the investors who are planning to invest in Indian market.

2. Government route

  • Activities which are not covered under the automatic route of Foreign Direct Investment require prior approval of the Government of India/Reserve bank of India.
  • A single point of contact for all government approval is being initiated by the government through a Foreign Investment facilitation portal (FIFP) under Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
  • Click on the link mentioned to understand the standard operating procedure (SOP) and the approval of various ministerial departments for different categories of business {http://fifp.gov.in/Forms/SOP.pdf}
