Rural crafts: Other payments

Enter in your cash flow forecast any payments that the business will make that have not been covered elsewhere in the cash flow. These might include, for example:

  • payments due under a maintenance contract for your workshop equipment - for example a kiln
  • fees for exhibiting at craft fairs and markets
  • eBay fees and/or fees due to other online marketplaces, such as Etsy, Folksy and Not On The High Street
  • gallery commission (include this in Other payments if you receive the full amount that your items sell for from galleries and other retailers, and then pay them their commission at a later date - but ignore it altogether if they deduct their commission before they pay you as is usual)

As with the other items in the cash flow, enter the amounts in the months when you expect to pay them.
