What is Working Capital Finance?
The purpose of this loan is to finance everyday operations of a company. WC is used to meet current obligations like wages, utility bills & clear up account payables.
A working capital loan is not used to buy long term assets or investments.
Working Capital Principle
A company having a Working Capital account enjoys what is called a “Credit Facility” or a “Limit”. This “Limit” entitles the company to withdraw up to a certain amount in excess of the amount deposited in this account.
Types of Working Capital Limits
- Cash Credit Facility
- Overdraft Facility
The principle of WC remaining the same, in Cash Credit facility the primary charge is created on the stock & inventory (current assets) of the company. So CC is applicable in the case of Manufacturing & trading companies.
Overdraft (OD) Facility applies to service providers where stock & inventory is absent. Here the primary charge is created on book debts.
Purpose of Working Capital Limits
- Financing the day to day operations of the company
- Purchase of raw materials & fuel
- Payment of wages
- Payment of utility bills
- Clear up account payable
