- Rationale of the study
In the market economy, capital is one of the most important factors for enterprises to survive and develop beside others factors such as human resources, the inventions, patents, technical management….Generally, in the commercial activity and particularly in the commercial enterprises, capital is also an effective tool to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises. Therefore, every business which wants to exist and develop has to concern about the capital creation and management. Working capital is one of the two components of capital. For commercial businesses, working capital accounts for a large proportion of the total capital approximately 75% – 95%. Working capital management is an important area of financial management in every business function. Working capital management deals with the administration of the liquidity components of firms’ short-term current assets and current liabilities (Baker and Powell, 2005; Brigham and Ehrhardt, 2005; Gitman, 2009). The most important current assets are cash, debtors or account receivables, stock or inventory and current liabilities consisting of creditors or account payables, accrued expenses, taxation liabilities, short-term debt such as commercial bills, and provisions for current liabilities such as dividends declared but not yet paid .

CHAPTER 1 LITERATURE REVIEW OF WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT 1.1. Introduction of working capital in enterprises 1.1.1. Definition of working capital In accounting and financial statement analysis, working capital involves a firm’s current assets and current liabilities that have maturities of less than one year and are needed for a normal business cycle. The net working capital is the difference between current assets and current liabilities. The current assets primarily include cash and short-term investments in marketable securities, inventories of raw materials, work-in- progress and finish goods as well as accounts receivables. If the current assets excess the current liabilities, this indicates that the firm has ability to meet its short-term financing obligations. The greater the net working capital is the more liquid or solvent the firm is.
