working capital

Definition:

the money and other assets available for conducting the day-to-day operations of an accounting entity; normally, the amount by which current assets exceed current liabilities. Also called ‘funds’. The term ‘net working capital’ is sometimes used for the excess of current assets over current liabilities if the term ‘gross working capital’ is used for the total value of current assets.
