Abstract

Efficient working capital management involves planning and controlling current assets and current liabilities in a manner that eliminates risk of inability to meet short term obligations one one hand and avoid excessive investments in these assets on the other hand. Efficient management of working capital can make the difference between success and failure, especially when banks are tightening the credit lines.

Keywords: working capital management, current assets, current liabilites
