Working Capital Calculator

The working capital calculator can be used by any business to estimate the cash needed to fund its working capital requirements.

Working capital is the amount of cash needed to fund the normal day to day trading operations of the business.

In a simple business it would be calculated as inventory + accounts receivable – accounts payable, which represents the funding needed to buy inventory and provide credit to customers, reduced by the amount of credit obtained from suppliers.
