Every business should have positive working capital. This term refers to the difference between assets and liabilities. If you own or manage a business and lack positive working capital, it will be awfully difficult to turn a profit across posterity. The bottom line is you need capital to run your operations on a daily basis and across the long haul. A business that has negative working capital won’t be able to continue producing products or services long enough to turn a profit, pay employees or cover other overhead costs. Let’s take a look at why assets and liabilities must be properly managed so your firm has the liquidity required to keep operations going.
You need money to make money. If you don’t have positive working capital, you won’t have enough cash on hand to spend on the equipment, supplies and employees necessary to generate the products or services sold to clients. You can’t predict what sorts of costs will arise in the short or long-term. A working capital loan might prove to be a game-changer for a business with plenty of demand yet insufficient cash to produce the supply necessary to meet that demand and turn a profit.
Every business has short-term and long-term obligations. If you are to remain solvent across posterity, you must meet your short-term obligations. The last thing you need is to endure a hit to your credit rating and be viewed as undeserving of loans. Maintain positive working capital, and you will be able to cover your short-term costs and obligations ranging from equipment costs to raw materials expenses, employee salaries, debts and so on.
No one can predict the future. An abnormally slow period could be right around the corner. Alternatively, an unexpectedly high demand could be coming down the pipeline. Positive working capital prepares you for either of these two potential extremes. If there is a slowdown, you will have capital available to meet your obligations and keep the doors open. If there is a spike in demand, you will have enough capital available to meet client demands and cover your overhead costs.
