How to Boost Your Com­pany’s Work­ing Cap­i­tal

Trillions - - Content -

Work­ing cap­i­tal is the block of money your busi­ness has on hand to deal with all day-to-day op­er­a­tions. If you don’t have enough work­ing cap­i­tal, your com­pany can’t grow or is at risk from un­ex­pected cash flow events.

Ev­ery­day ex­penses can run from as small as of­fice sup­plies to as large as rent, util­i­ties, emer­gency re­pairs, main­te­nance and non-cap­i­tal pur­chases. Work­ing cap­i­tal is the money you can use to take care of those ex­penses.

Cal­cu­lat­ing your avail­able work­ing cap­i­tal is as sim­ple as sub­tract­ing your cur­rent li­a­bil­i­ties from your cur­rent as­sets. Those cur­rent as­sets can in­clude ac­counts re­ceiv­able, the value of in­ven­tory you have on hand and any cash your busi­ness may have. Cur­rent li­a­bil­i­ties in­clude ac­counts payable, debts and any ex­penses your busi­ness needs to pay for. When your work­ing cap­i­tal is high, your com­pany is usu­ally in rel­a­tively good fi­nan­cial shape. When it’s low, other steps may be needed to sta­bi­lize the en­ter­prise.

As with many sim­i­lar things on a per­sonal ba­sis, when your work­ing cap­i­tal is high enough, it is eas­ier to se­cure loans at low in­ter­est rates when you need them. Those needs could be for emer­gency sit­u­a­tions where a prob­lem has emerged out of nowhere. They could also be for in­vest­ments that could al­low your com­pany to ex­pand its of­fer­ings or ge­o­graphic reach or to help hire short-term per­son­nel to take care of a spe­cial job op­por­tu­nity. Ei­ther way, hav­ing more work­ing cap­i­tal avail­able means your busi­ness is stronger, both for the short term and for the long run.
