Working Capital and Small Businesses
How exactly is Working Capital calculated?
Formula: Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities.
A business with a positive Working Capital is one that has additional income after paying off all bills, loans, staff costs, etc. In simple terms; a profitable business.
A business with a negative Working Capital, is the exact opposite of the above. If a business has a negative working capital, then it is not currently profitable.
Businesses can slip into a negative Working Capital at one time or another, and it can happen for many reasons, such as long-term spikes in interest rates, or sudden business growth that was not anticipated. Even businesses with good credit scores can dip into negative working capital at one time or another.
