U.K. Companies' Short-Term Financial Decisions: Evidence from Company Accounts Data
Short-term financial decisions of companies are modeled with data from the published accounts of a sample of U.K. companies. The total short-term financing requirement is modeled as a buffer, absorbing deficits and surpluses elsewhere in the company's accounts. The focus is on the allocation of this total across four financial instruments: short-term bank borrowing, liquid assets, trade credit given and received. The major determinants of the allocation are found to be the company's mainstream operations (investment, profits, etc), its balance-sheet position, and economy-wide factors (interest rates, tax rates, statutory controls). There is evidence of systematic differences in behavior across companies related to size and profitability. Copyright 1994 by Blackwell Publishers Ltd and The Victoria University of Manchester
