Cash flow is a concern for every business but what would SMBs do with $50,000 worth of funds to invest into their company? Thirty-four perfect of the MYOB SME Snapshot survey respondents said they would dump the money into buying inventory and equipment.

Marketing, advertising and PR are also prioritised by SMBs with 30 per cent of respondents saying they would invest in those areas. A quarter of business owners would pour that money into hiring additional staff.
