The least expensive form of financing of a business is the Creditors of the business. The reason for this is the fact that most creditors don’t charge interest on the outstanding amount of their customers’ accounts. However, the most common mistake made by most managers, is to employ unskilled workers to handle this vital source of finance – with the result that the benefits are lost.
