Working capital, also referred to as net working capital, is a crucial figure for companies. It is particularly important for B2B businesses, as their working capital traditionally services large volumes. A dependence on the equity-to-premium ratio also increases the importance of working capital.
In a lot of companies there is often more capital tied up in working capital than is actually necessary. This can be reduced through strategic working capital management, thereby allowing companies to free up liquid funds which can be used for investment, paying back credit or simply as reserve funds.
Optimizing capital has another benefit: working capital is an indicator of a company’s financial strength and as a result it shows up on the balance sheet. If a company can improve its balance sheet relation, it has a positive impact on their credit rating too.
