In order to reduce of defer expenses, consider...

  • evaluating your payroll costs; consider “across the board” pay reductions or reduced work weeks, as opposed to terminations and lay-offs
  • contacting your suppliers and vendors to request extended payment terms and/or reduced costs (i.e., utilities, freight, etc.)
  • for all rent and lease contracts (office, automobiles, equipment), requesting deferral or reduction of upcoming lease payments
  • evaluating purchase commitments (inventory, capital expenditures, etc.) and consider requesting deferral or cancellation
  • analyzing current inventory levels; if there are excess levels request to return for cash refund or future credit
  • eliminating all non-essential spending (i.e., direct marketing)
  • contacting your credit card companies to obtain waiver of late payment penalty fees and reduction in interest rates
