1. The cash available for day-to-day operations of an organization. Strictly speaking, one borrows cash (and not working capital) to be able to buy assets or to pay for obligations. Also called current capital.

2. Accounting: Net liquid assets computed by deducting current liabilities from current assets. The amount of available working capital is a measure of a firm's ability to meet its short-term obligations. Sources of working capital are 
(1) net income, 
(2) long-term loans, 
(3) sale of capital assets, and 
(4) injection of funds by stockholders.
