### Introduction of Working Capital Management Working capital management is the device of finance. It is related to manage of current assets and current liabilities. After learning working capital management, commerce students can use this tool for fund flow analysis. Working capital is very significant for paying day to day expenses and long term liabilities. Meaning and Concept of Working Capital and its management Working capital is that part of company’s capital which is used for purchasing raw material and 3 involve in sundry debtors. We all know that current assets are very important for proper working of fixed assets. Suppose, if you have invested your money to purchase machines of company and if you have not any more money to buy raw material, then your machinery will no use for any production without raw material. From this example, you can understand that working capital is very useful for operating any business organization. We can also take one more liquid item of current assets that is cash. If you have not cash in hand, then you can not pay for different expenses of company, and at that time, your many business works may delay for not paying certain expenses.

### Types of Working Capital 1. Gross working capital Total or gross working capital is that working capital which is used for all the current assets. Total value of current assets will equal to gross working capital. 2. Net Working Capital Net working capital is the excess of current assets over current liabilities. Net Working Capital = Total Current Assets – Total Current Liabilities This amount shows that if we deduct total current liabilities from total current assets, then balance amount can be used for repayment of long term debts at any time. 3. Permanent Working Capital Permanent working capital is that amount of capital which must be in cash or current assets for continuing the activities of business. 4. Temporary Working Capital Sometime, it may possible that we have to pay fixed liabilities, at that time we need working capital which is more than permanent working capital, then this excess amount will be temporary working capital. :

Define the Operating Cycle of a business The Operating Cycle of a business is the length of time between the cash outflow on purchased material and cash inflow from the sale of goods. The Operating Cycle determines the amount of working capital that a business requires to operate on a day-to-day basis. The shorter the Operating Cycle the lower the amount of working capital required for the business and the greater opportunity for investments in other value-adding activities. The Operating Cycle for a manufacturing based business can involve many stages, namely: 1. Purchase - the receipt of raw materials from suppliers on account. 2. Conversion - the conversion of these raw materials into finished goods 3. Inventory - the holding and storage of raw materials, Work-In-Progress (WIP) and Finished Goods. 4. Payment - the payment of the supplier's account for the raw materials received earlier. 5. Sale - the sale of finished goods to customers on account

### Operating cycle and cash cycle are two important components of working capital management. Together they determine the efficiency of a firm regarding working capital management. While the operating cycle is the time period from inventory purchase until the receipt of cash, the cash cycle is the time period from when cash is paid out, to when cash is received. Operating cycle refers to the delay between the buying of raw materials and the receipt of cash from sales proceeds. In other words, operating cycle refers to the number of days taken for the conversion of cash to inventory through the conversion of accounts receivable to cash. It indicates towards the time period for which cash is engaged in inventory and accounts receivable. If an operating cycle is long, then there is lower accessibility to cash for satisfying liabilities for the short term. :

### Operating cycle takes into consideration the following elements: accounts payable, cash, accounts receivable, and inventory replacement. The following formula is used for calculating operating cycle: Operating cycle = age of inventory + collection period Here, Age of Inventory (in days) = Inventory/ (Cost of Sales/365) = 365/Inventory Turnover Collection Period (in days) = Receivables/ (Sales/365) = 365/Receivables Turnover Cash cycle is also termed as net operating cycle, asset conversion cycle, working capital cycle or cash conversion cycle. Cash cycle is implemented in the financial assessment of a commercial enterprise. The cash cycle is interpreted as the number of days between the payment for inputs and getting cash by sales of commodities manufactured from that input. The fundamental formula that is applied for the calculation of cash conversion cycle is as follows: :

### Cash cycle = (Average Stockholding Period) + (Average Receivables Processing Period) - (Average Payables Processing Period) Here Average Receivables Processing Period (in days) = Accounts Receivable/Average Daily Credit Sales Average Stockholding Period (in days) = Closing Stock/Average Daily Purchases Average Payable Processing Period (in days) = Accounts Payable/Average Daily Credit Purchases A short cash cycle reflects sound management of working capital. On the other hand, a long cash cycle denotes that capital is occupied when the commercial entity is expecting its clients to make payments. There is always a probability that a commercial enterprise can face negative cash conversion cycle, in which case they are getting payments from the clients before any payment is made to the suppliers. Instances of such business entities are commonly those companies, which apply JIT or Just in Time techniques, for example Dell, as well as commercial enterprises, which purchase on terms and conditions of longer duration credits and perform sales against cash, for instance Tesco. :
