CASH MANAGEMENT
INTRODUCTION:
Cash is the important current asset for the operations of the business. Cash is the
basic input needed to keep the business running on a continuous basis; it is also the ultimate
output expected to be realized by selling the service or product manufactured by the firm.
The firm should keep sufficient cash, neither more nor less. Cash shortage will disrupt the
firm’s manufacturing operations while excessive cash will simply remain idle, without
contributing anything towards the firm’s profitability. Thus, a major function of the financial
manager is to maintain a sound cash position.

Cash is the money which a firm can disburse immediately without any restriction.
The term cash includes coins, currency and cheques held by the firm, and balances in its
bank accounts. Sometimes near-cash items, such as marketable securities or bank times
deposits, are also included in cash. The basic characteristic of near-cash assets is that they
can readily be converted into cash. Generally, when a firm has excess cash, it invests it in
marketable securities. This kind of investment contributes some profit to the firm.

1.3 NEED FOR THE STUDY

The importance of Cash management in any industrial concern cannot be


overstressed. Under the present inflationary condition, management of Cash is perhaps more
important than even management of profit and this requires greatest attention and efforts of
the finance manager. It needs vigilant attention as each of its components require different
types of treatment and it throws constant attention on exercise of skill and judgment,
awareness of economic trend etc, due to urgency and complicacy the vital importance of
Cash.

The anti-inflationary measure taken up by the Government, creating a tight money


condition has placed working capital in the most challenging zone of management and it
requires a unique skill for its management. Today, the problem of managing Cash has got the
recognition of separate entity, so its study and management is of major importance to both
internal and external analyst to judge the current position of the business concerns. Hence, the
present study entitled “An Analysis on Cash Management” has been taken up.

Evolution

Indian Stock Markets are one of the oldest in Asia. Its history dates back to nearly 200 years
ago. The earliest records of security dealings in India are meager and obscure. The East India
Company was the dominant institution in those days and business in its loan securities used
to be transacted towards the close of the eighteenth century.

By 1830's business on corporate stocks and shares in Bank and Cotton presses took place in
Bombay. Though the trading list was broader in 1839, there were only half a dozen brokers
recognized by banks and merchants during 1840 and 1850.

The 1850's witnessed a rapid development of commercial enterprise and brokerage business
attracted many men into the field and by 1860 the number of brokers increased into 60.

In 1860-61 the American Civil War broke out and cotton supply from United States of Europe
was stopped; thus, the 'Share Mania' in India begun. The number of brokers increased to
about 200 to 250. However, at the end of the American Civil War, in 1865, a disastrous slump
began (for example, Bank of Bombay Share which had touched Rs 2850 could only be sold at
Rs. 87).

At the end of the American Civil War, the brokers who thrived out of Civil War in 1874,
found a place in a street (now appropriately called as Dalal Street) where they would
conveniently assemble and transact business. In 1887, they formally established in Bombay,
the "Native Share and Stock Brokers' Association" (which is alternatively known as " The
Stock Exchange "). In 1895, the Stock Exchange acquired a premise in the same street and it
was inaugurated in 1899. Thus, the Stock Exchange at Bombay was consolidated.

Other leading cities in stock market operations

Ahmadabad gained importance next to Bombay with respect to cotton textile industry. After
1880, many mills originated from Ahmadabad and rapidly forged ahead. As new mills were
floated, the need for a Stock Exchange at Ahmadabad was realized and in 1894 the brokers
formed "The Ahmadabad Share and Stock Brokers' Association".

What the cotton textile industry was to Bombay and Ahmadabad, the jute industry was to
Calcutta. Also tea and coal industries were the other major industrial groups in Calcutta. After
7
the Share Mania in 1861-65, in the 1870's there was a sharp boom in jute shares, which was
followed by a boom in tea shares in the 1880's and 1890's; and a coal boom between 1904
and 1908. On June 1908, some leading brokers formed "The Calcutta Stock Exchange
Association".

In the beginning of the twentieth century, the industrial revolution was on the way in India
with the Swadeshi Movement; and with the inauguration of the Tata Iron and Steel Company
Limited in 1907, an important stage in industrial advancement under Indian enterprise was
reached.

Indian cotton and jute textiles, steel, sugar, paper and flour mills and all companies generally
enjoyed phenomenal prosperity, due to the First World War.

In 1920, the then demure city of Madras had the maiden thrill of a stock exchange
functioning in its midst, under the name and style of "The Madras Stock Exchange" with 100
members. However, when boom faded, the number of members stood reduced from 100 to 3,
by 1923, and so it went out of existence.

In 1935, the stock market activity improved, especially in South India where there was a
rapid increase in the number of textile mills and many plantation companies were floated. In
1937, a stock exchange was once again organized in Madras - Madras Stock Exchange
Association (Pvt) Limited. (In 1957 the name was changed to Madras Stock Exchange
Limited).

Lahore Stock Exchange was formed in 1934 and it had a brief life. It was merged with the
Punjab Stock Exchange Limited, which was incorporated in 1936.

Indian Stock Exchanges - An Umbrella Growth

The Second World War broke out in 1939. It gave a sharp boom which was followed by a
slump. But, in 1943, the situation changed radically, when India was fully mobilized as a
supply base.

On account of the restrictive controls on cotton, bullion, seeds and other commodities, those
dealing in them found in the stock market as the only outlet for their activities. They were
anxious to join the trade and their number was swelled by numerous others. Many new

8
associations were constituted for the purpose and Stock Exchanges in all parts of the country
were floated.

The Uttar Pradesh Stock Exchange Limited (1940), Nagpur Stock Exchange Limited (1940)
and Hyderabad Stock Exchange Limited (1944) were incorporated.

In Delhi two stock exchanges - Delhi Stock and Share Brokers' Association Limited and the
Delhi Stocks and Shares Exchange Limited - were floated and later in June 1947,
amalgamated into the Delhi Stock Exchnage Association Limited.

Trading Pattern of the Indian Stock Market

Trading in Indian stock exchanges are limited to listed securities of public limited companies.
They are broadly divided into two categories, namely, specified securities (forward list) and
non-specified securities (cash list). Equity shares of dividend paying, growth-oriented
companies with a paid-up capital of atleast Rs.50 million and a market capitalization of
atleast Rs.100 million and having more than 20,000 shareholders are, normally, put in the
specified group and the balance in non-specified group.

Two types of transactions can be carried out on the Indian stock exchanges: (a) spot delivery
transactions "for delivery and payment within the time or on the date stipulated when
entering into the contract which shall not be more than 14 days following the date of the
contract" : and (b) forward transactions "delivery and payment can be extended by further
period of 14 days each so that the overall period does not exceed 90 days from the date of the
contract". The latter is permitted only in the case of specified shares. The brokers who carry
over the outstandings pay carry over charges (cantango or backwardation) which are usually
determined by the rates of interest prevailing.

A member broker in an Indian stock exchange can act as an agent, buy and sell securities for
his clients on a commission basis and also can act as a trader or dealer as a principal, buy and
sell securities on his own account and risk, in contrast with the practice prevailing on New
York and London Stock Exchanges, where a member can act as a jobber or a broker only.

The nature of trading on Indian Stock Exchanges are that of age old conventional style of
face-to-face trading with bids and offers being made by open outcry. However, there is a
great amount of effort to modernize the Indian stock exchanges in the very recent times.

9
Over The Counter Exchange of India (OTCEI)

The traditional trading mechanism prevailed in the Indian stock markets gave way to many
functional inefficiencies, such as, absence of liquidity, lack of transparency, unduly long
settlement periods and benami transactions, which affected the small investors to a great
extent. To provide improved services to investors, the country's first ringless, scripless,
electronic stock exchange - OTCEI - was created in 1992 by country's premier financial
institutions - Unit Trust of India, Industrial Credit and Investment Corporation of India,
Industrial Development Bank of India, SBI Capital Markets, Industrial Finance Corporation
of India, General Insurance Corporation and its subsidiaries and CanBank Financial Services.

Trading at OTCEI is done over the centres spread across the country. Securities traded on the
OTCEI are classified into:

 Listed Securities - The shares and debentures of the companies listed on the OTC can
be bought or sold at any OTC counter all over the country and they should not be
listed anywhere else

 Permitted Securities - Certain shares and debentures listed on other exchanges and
units of mutual funds are allowed to be traded

 Initiated debentures - Any equity holding atleast one lakh debentures of a particular
scrip can offer them for trading on the OTC.

OTC has a unique feature of trading compared to other traditional exchanges. That is,
certificates of listed securities and initiated debentures are not traded at OTC. The original
certificate will be safely with the custodian. But, a counter receipt is generated out at the
counter which substitutes the share certificate and is used for all transactions.

In the case of permitted securities, the system is similar to a traditional stock exchange. The
difference is that the delivery and payment procedure will be completed within 14 days.

Compared to the traditional Exchanges, OTC Exchange network has the following
advantages:

10
 OTCEI has widely dispersed trading mechanism across the country which provides
greater liquidity and lesser risk of intermediary charges.

 Greater transparency and accuracy of prices is obtained due to the screen-based


scripless trading.

 Since the exact price of the transaction is shown on the computer screen, the investor
gets to know the exact price at which s/he is trading.

 Faster settlement and transfer process compared to other exchanges.

 In the case of an OTC issue (new issue), the allotment procedure is completed in a
month and trading commences after a month of the issue closure, whereas it takes a
longer period for the same with respect to other exchanges.

Thus, with the superior trading mechanism coupled with information transparency investors
are gradually becoming aware of the manifold advantages of the OTCEI.

National Stock Exchange (NSE)

With the liberalization of the Indian economy, it was found inevitable to lift the Indian stock
market trading system on par with the international standards. On the basis of the
recommendations of high powered Pherwani Committee, the National Stock Exchange was
incorporated in 1992 by Industrial Development Bank of India, Industrial Credit and
Investment Corporation of India, Industrial Finance Corporation of India, all Insurance
Corporations, selected commercial banks and others.

Trading at NSE can be classified under two broad categories:

(a) Wholesale debt market and

(b) Capital market.

Wholesale debt market operations are similar to money market operations - institutions and
corporate bodies enter into high value transactions in financial instruments such as
government securities, treasury bills, public sector unit bonds, commercial paper, certificate
of deposit, etc.

There are two kinds of players in NSE:


11
(a) trading members and

(b) participants.

Recognized members of NSE are called trading members who trade on behalf of themselves
and their clients. Participants include trading members and large players like banks who take
direct settlement responsibility.

Trading at NSE takes place through a fully automated screen-based trading mechanism which
adopts the principle of an order-driven market. Trading members can stay at their offices and
execute the trading, since they are linked through a communication network. The prices at
which the buyer and seller are willing to transact will appear on the screen. When the prices
match the transaction will be completed and a confirmation slip will be printed at the office
of the trading member.

NSE has several advantages over the traditional trading exchanges. They are as follows:

 NSE brings an integrated stock market trading network across the nation.

 Investors can trade at the same price from anywhere in the country since inter-market
operations are streamlined coupled with the countrywide access to the securities.

 Delays in communication, late payments and the malpractice’s prevailing in the


traditional trading mechanism can be done away with greater operational efficiency
and informational transparency in the stock market operations, with the support of
total computerized network.

Unless stock markets provide professionalized service, small investors and foreign investors
will not be interested in capital market operations. And capital market being one of the major
source of long-term finance for industrial projects, India cannot afford to damage the capital
market path. In this regard NSE gains vital importance in the Indian capital market system.

Preamble

Often, in the economic literature we find the terms ‘development’ and ‘growth’ are used
interchangeably. However, there is a difference. Economic growth refers to the sustained
increase in per capita or total income, while the term economic development implies
sustained structural change, including all the complex effects of economic growth. In other

12
words, growth is associated with free enterprise, where as development requires some sort of
control and regulation of the forces affecting development. Thus, economic development is a
process and growth is a phenomenon.

Economic planning is very critical for a nation, especially a developing country like India to
take the country in the path of economic development to attain economic growth.

Why Economic Planning for India?

One of the major objective of planning in India is to increase the rate of economic
development, implying that increasing the rate of capital formation by raising the levels of
income, saving and investment. However, increasing the rate of capital formation in India is
beset with a number of difficulties. People are poverty ridden. Their capacity to save is
extremely low due to low levels of income and high propensity to consume. Therefor, the rate
of investment is low which leads to capital deficiency and low productivity. Low productivity
means low income and the vicious circle continues. Thus, to break this vicious economic
circle, planning is inevitable for India.

The market mechanism works imperfectly in developing nations due to the ignorance and
unfamiliarity with it. Therefore, to improve and strengthen market mechanism planning is
very vital. In India, a large portion of the economy is non-monitised; the product, factors of
production, money and capital markets is not organized properly. Thus the prevailing price
mechanism fails to bring about adjustments between aggregate demand and supply of goods
and services. Thus, to improve the economy, market imperfections has to be removed;
available resources has to be mobilized and utilized efficiently; and structural rigidities has to
be overcome. These can be attained only through planning.

In India, capital is scarce; and unemployment and disguised unemployment is prevalent.


Thus, where capital was being scarce and labour being abundant, providing useful
employment opportunities to an increasing labour force is a difficult exercise. Only a
centralized planning model can solve this macro problem of India.

Further, in a country like India where agricultural dependence is very high, one cannot ignore
this segment in the process of economic development. Therefore, an economic development
model has to consider a balanced approach to link both agriculture and industry and lead for a
paralleled growth. Not to mention, both agriculture and industry cannot develop without
adequate infrastructural facilities which only the state can provide and this is possible only
13
through a well carved out planning strategy. The government’s role in providing
infrastructure is unavoidable due to the fact that the role of private sector in infrastructural
development of India is very minimal since these infrastructure projects are considered as
unprofitable by the private sector.

Further, India is a clear case of income disparity. Thus, it is the duty of the state to reduce the
prevailing income inequalities. This is possible only through planning.

Planning History of India

The development of planning in India began prior to the first Five Year Plan of independent
India, long before independence even. The idea of central directions of resources to overcome
persistent poverty gradually, because one of the main policies advocated by nationalists early
in the century. The Congress Party worked out a program for economic advancement during
the 1920’s, and 1930’s and by the 1938 they formed a National Planning Committee under
the chairmanship of future Prime Minister Nehru. The Committee had little time to do
anything but prepare programs and reports before the Second World War which put an end to
it. But it was already more than an academic exercise remote from administration.
Provisional government had been elected in 1938, and the Congress Party leaders held
positions of responsibility. After the war, the Interim government of the pre-independence
years appointed an Advisory Planning Board. The Board produced a number of somewhat
disconnected Plans itself. But, more important in the long run, it recommended the
appointment of a Planning Commission.

The Planning Commission did not start work properly until 1950. During the first three years
of independent India, the state and economy scarcely had a stable structure at all, while
millions of refugees crossed the newly established borders of India and Pakistan, and while
ex-princely states (over 500 of them) were being merged into India or Pakistan. The Planning
Commission as it now exists, was not set up until the new India had adopted its Constitution
in January 1950.

Objectives of Indian Planning

The Planning Commission was set up the following Directive principles :

14
 To make an assessment of the material, capital and human resources of the country,
including technical personnel, and investigate the possibilities of augmenting such of
these resources as are found to be deficient in relation to the nation’s requirement.

 To formulate a plan for the most effective and balanced use of the country’s resources.

 Having determined the priorities, to define the stages in which the plan should be
carried out, and propose the allocation of resources for the completion of each stage.

 To indicate the factors which are tending to retard economic development, and
determine the conditions which, in view of the current social and political situation,
should be established for the successful execution of the Plan.

 To determine the nature of the machinery this will be necessary for securing the
successful implementation of each stage of Plan in all its aspects.

 To appraise from time to time the progress achieved in the execution of each stage of
the Plan and recommend the adjustments of policy and measures that such appraisals
may show to be necessary.

 To make such interim or auxiliary recommendations as appear to it to be appropriate


either for facilitating the discharge of the duties assigned to it or on a consideration of
the prevailing economic conditions, current policies, measures and development
programs; or on an examination of such specific problems as may be referred to it for
advice by Central or State Governments.

The long-term general objectives of Indian Planning are as follows:


 Increasing National Income
 Reducing inequalities in the distribution of income and wealth
 Elimination of poverty
 Providing additional employment; and
 Alleviating bottlenecks in the areas of : agricultural production, manufacturing
capacity for producer’s goods and balance of payments.
Economic growth, as the primary objective has remained in focus in all Five Year Plans.
Approximately, economic growth has been targeted at a rate of five per cent per annum. High
priority to economic growth in Indian Plans looks very much justified in view of long period
of stagnation during the British rule

CHAPTER III
REVIEW OF LITERATURE

28
REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Meaning:

Cash is the money which a firm can disburse immediately without any restriction.
The term cash includes coins, currency and cheques held by the firm, and balances in its bank
accounts. Sometimes near-cash items, such as marketable securities or bank times deposits,
are also included in cash. The basic characteristic of near-cash assets is that they can readily
be converted into cash.

FACETS OF CASH MANAGEMENT:

Cash management is concerned with the managing of: (i) Cash flows into and out of
the firm, (ii) Cash flows within the firm, and (iii) Cash balances held by the firm at a point of
time by financing deficit or investing surplus cash. It can be represented by a cash
management cycle. Sales generate cash which has to be disbursed out. The surplus cash has
to be invested while deficit this cycle at a minimum cost. At the same time, it also seeks to
achieve liquidity and control. Cash management assumes more importance than other current
assets because cash is the most significant and the least productive asset that a firm’s holds.
It is significant because it is used to pay the firm’s obligations. However, cash is
unproductive. Unlike fixed assets or inventories, it does not produce goods for sale.
Therefore, the aim of cash management is to maintain adequate control over cash position to
keep the firm sufficiently liquid and to use excess cash in some profitable way.

Cash management is also important because it is difficult to predict cash flows


accurately, particularly the inflows, and there is no prefect coincidence between the inflows
and outflows of cash. During some periods, cash outflows will exceed cash inflows, because
payments for taxes, dividends, or seasonal inventory build up. At other times, cash inflow
will be more than cash payments because there may be large cash sales and debtors may be
realized in large sums promptly. Further, cash management is significant because cash
constitutes the smallest portion of the total current assets, yet management’s considerable
time is devoted in managing it. In recent past, a number of innovations have been done in
cash management techniques. An obvious aim of the firm these days is to manage its cash
29
affairs in such a way as to keep cash balance at a minimum level and to invest the surplus
cash in profitable investment opportunities.

In order to resolve the uncertainty about cash flow prediction and lack of
synchronization between cash receipts and payments, the firm should develop appropriate
strategies for cash management. The firm should evolve strategies for cash management.
The firm should evolve strategies regarding the following four facets of cash management.

 Cash planning: Cash inflows and outflows should be planned to project cash surplus
or deficit for each period of the planning period. Cash budget should be prepared for
this purpose.
 Managing the cash flows: The firm should decide about the properly managed. The
cash inflows should be accelerated while, as far as possible, the cash outflows should
be decelerated.
 Optimum cash level: the firm should decide about the appropriate level of cash
balances. The cost of excess cash and danger of cash deficiency should be matched to
determine the optimum level of cash balances.
 Investing surplus cash: The surplus cash balances should be properly invested to
earn profits. The firms should decide about the division of such cash balances
between alternative short-term investment opportunities such as bank deposits,
marketable securities, or inter-corporate lending.

MOTIVES FOR HOLDING CASH


The firm’s need to hold cash may be attributed to the following three motives:
 The transactions motive
 The precautionary motive
 The speculative motive
TRANSACTION MOTIVE
The transactions motive requires a firm to hold cash to conduct its business in the
ordinary course. The firm needs cash primarily to make payments for purchases, wages and
salaries, other operating expenses, taxes, dividends etc. The need to hold cash would not
arise if there were perfect synchronization between cash receipts and cash payments, i.e.,
enough cash is received when the payment has to be made. But cash receipts and payments
are not perfectly synchronized. For those periods, when cash payments exceed cash receipts,

30
the firm should maintain some cash balance to be able to make required payments. For
transactions purpose, a firm may invest its cash in marketable securities. Usually, the firm
will purchase securities whose maturity corresponds with some anticipated payments, such as
dividends or taxes in the future. Notice that the transactions motive mainly refers to holding
cash to meet anticipated payments whose timing is not perfectly matched with cash receipts.

PRECAUTIONARY MOTIVE
The precautionary motive is the need to hold cash to meet contingencies in the future.
It provides a cushion or buffer to withstand some unexpected emergency. The precautionary
amount of cash depends upon the predictability of cash flows. If cash flows can be predicted
with accuracy, less cash will be maintained for an emergency. The amount of precautionary
cash is also influenced by the firm’s ability to borrow at short notice when the need arises.
Stronger the ability of the firm to borrow at short notice, less the need for precautionary
balance. The precautionary balance may be kept in cash and marketable securities.
Marketable securities play an important role here. The amount of cash set aside for
precautionary reasons is not expected to earn anything; the firm should attempt to earn some
profit on it. Such funds should be invested in high-liquid and low-risk marketable securities.
Precautionary balances should, thus, be held more in marketable securities and relatively less
in cash.
SPECULATIVE MOTIVE

The speculative motive relates to the holding of cash for investing in profit-making
opportunity to make profit may arise when the security prices change. The firm will hold
cash, when it is expected that interest rates will rise and security prices will fall. Securities
can be purchased when the interest rate is expected to fall; the firm will benefit by the
subsequent fall in interest rates and increase in security prices. The firm may also speculate
on materials prices. If it is expected that materials prices will fall, the firm can postpone
materials purchasing and make purchases in future when pric4e actually falls. Some firms
may hold cash for speculative purposes. By and large, business firms do not engage in
speculations. Thus, the primary motives to hold cash and marketable securities are: the
transactions and the precautionary motives.

31
CASH PLANNING

Cash flows are inseparable parts of the business operations of firms. A firm needs
cash to invest in inventory, receivable and fixed assets and to make payment for operating
expenses in order to maintain growth in sales and earnings. It is possible that firm may be
making adequate profits, but may suffer from the shortage of cash as its growing needs may
be consuming cash very fast. The ‘poor cash’ position of the firm cash is corrected if its cash
needs are planned in advance. At times, a firm can have excess cash may remain idle. Again,
such excess cash outflows. Such excess cash flows can be anticipated and properly invested
if cash planning is resorted to. Cash planning is a technique to plan and control the use of
cash. It helps to anticipate the future cash flows and needs of the firm and reduces the
possibility of idle cash balances ( which lowers firm’s profitability ) and cash deficits (which
can cause the firm’s failure).

Cash planning protects the financial condition of the firm by developing a projected
cash statement from a forecast of expected cash inflows and outflows for a given period. The
forecasts may be based on the present operations or the anticipated future operations. Cash
plans are very crucial in developing the overall operating plans of the firm.
Cash planning may be done on daily, weekly or monthly basis. The period and
frequency of cash planning generally depends upon the size of the firm and philosophy of
management. Large firms prepare daily and weekly forecasts. Medium-size firms usually
prepare weekly and monthly forecasts. Small firms may not prepare formal cash forecasts
because of the non-availability of information and small-scale operations. But, if the small
firms prepare cash projections, it is done on monthly basis. As a firm grows and business
operations become complex, cash planning becomes inevitable for its continuing success.
OTHER FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE SIZE OF CASH BALANCE
1. Availability of short-term credit:
To avoid holding unnecessary large balances of cash, most firms attempt to make
arrangements at borrow money is case of unexpected needs. With such an agreement, the
firm normally pays interest only during the period that the money is actually used.

2. Money market rates:


If money will bring a low return a firm may choose not to invest it. Since the loss or
profit is small, it may not be worth the trouble to make the loan. On the other hand, if interest
rates are very high, every extra rupee will be invested.
32
3. Variation in cash flows:
Some firms experience wide fluctuation in cash flows as a routine matter. A firm with
steady cash flows can maintain a fairly uniform cash balance.
4. Compensating balance:
If a firm has borrowed money from a bank, the loan agreement may require the firm to
maintain a minimum balance of cash in its accounts. This is called compensating balance. In
effect this requires the firm to use the services of bank a guaranteed deposit on which it pays
no interest. The interest free deposit is the bank’s compensation for its advice and assistance.
CASH MANAGEMENT – BASIS STRATEGIES

The management should, after knowing the cash position by means of the cash
budget, work out the basic strategies to be employed to manage its cash.

CASH CYCLE:

The cash cycle refers to the process by which cash is used to purchase materials from
which are produced goods, which are them sold to customers.
Cash cycle=Average age of firm’s inventory
+Days to collect its accounts receivables
-Days to pay its accounts payable.

The cash turnover means the numbers of times firm’s cash is used during each year.

360
Cash turnover = ----------------
Cash cycle

The higher the cash turnover, the less cash the firm requires. The firm should, therefore, try
to maximize the cash turn.
MANAGING COLLECTIONS:
a) Prompt Billing:
By preparing and sending the bills promptly, without a time log between the dispatch
of goods and sending the bills, a firm can ensure earlier remittance.
33
b) Expeditious collection of cheques:
An important aspect of efficient cash management is to process the cheques receives
very promptly.
c) Concentration Banking:
Instead of a single collection center located at the company headquarters, multiple
collection centers are established. The purpose is to shorten the period between the time
customers mail in their payments and the time when the company has use of the funds are
then to a concentration bank – usually a disbursement account.
d) Lock-Box System:
With concentration banking, a collection center receives remittances, processes them and
deposits them in a bank. The purpose is to lock-box system is to eliminate the time between
the receipt of remittances by the company and their deposit in the bank. The company rents a
local post office box and authorizes its bank in each of these cities to pick up remittances in
the box. The bank picks up the mail several times a day and deposits the cheque in the
company’s accounts. The cheques are recorded and cleared for collection. The company
receives a deposits the cheque in the company’s accounts. The cheques are recorded and
cleared for collation. The company receives a deposit slip and a lift of payments. This
procedure frees the company from handling a depositing the cheques.

CONTROL OF DISBURSMENT

a) Stretching Accounts Payable


A firm should pay its accounts payables as late as possible without damaging its credit
standing. It should, however, take advantages of the cash discount available on prompt
payment.

b) Centralized Disbursement
One procedure for rightly controlling disbursements is to cenrealise payables in to a
single account, presumably at the company’s headquarters. Such an arrangement would
enable a firm to delay payments and can serve cash for several reasons. Firstly, it increases
transit time. Secondly, if a firm has a centralized bank account, a relatively smaller total cash
balances will be needed.

34
c) Bank Draft
Unlike an ordinary cheque, the draft is not payable on demand. When it is presented
to the issuer’s bank for collection, the bank must present it to the issuer for acceptance. The
funds then are deposited by the issuing firm to cover payments of the draft. But suppliers
prefer cheques. Also, bank imposes a higher service charge to process them since they
require special attention, usually manual.

d) Playing the float


The amount of cheques issued by the firm but not paid for by the bank is referred to as
the “payment float”. The differences between “payment float” and “collection float” are the
net float. So, if a firm enjoys a positive “net float”, it may issue cheques even if it means
having an ever drown account in its books. Such an action is referred to as “playing the
float”, within limits a firm can play this game reasonably safely.
Thus management of cash becomes essential and it should be seen to, that neither
excessive nor inadequate cash balances are maintained.

CASH FLOW ANALYSIS

The cash flow analysis is done with the help of cash flow statement. A cash flow
statement is a statement depicting changes in cash position from one period to another. It is
an important planning tool. Cash flow statement gives a clear picture of the source of cash,
the uses of cash and the net changes in cash. The primary purpose of cash flow statement is
to show that as to where from the cash to be acquired and where to use them.

UTILITY OF CASH FLOW ANALYSIS


A Cash flow analysis is an important financial tool for the management. Its chief
advantages are as follows.

1. Helps in efficient cash management


Cash flow analysis helps in evaluating financial policies and cash position. Cash is
the basis for all operation and hence a projected cash flow statement will enable the
management to plan and co-ordinate the financial operations properly. The management can
know how much cash is needed from which source it will be derived, how much can be
generated, how much can be utilized.

35
2. Helps in internal financial management
Cash flow analysis information about funds, which will be available from operations.
This will helps the management in repayment of long-term debt, dividend policies etc.,

3. Discloses the movements of Cash


Cash flow statement discloses the complete picture of cash movement. The increase
in and decrease of cash and the reasons therefore can be known. It discloses the reasons for
low cash balance in spite of heavy operation profits on for heavy cash balance in spite of low
profits.
4. Discloses success or failure of cash planning
The extent of success or failure of cash planning be known by comparing the
projected cash flow statement with the actual cash flow statement and necessary remedial
measures can be taken.
DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM CASH BALANCE
One of the primary responsibilities of the financial manager is to maintain a sound
liquidity position of the firm so that the dues are settled in time. The firm needs cash to
purchase raw materials and pay wages and other expenses as well as for paying dividend,
interest and taxes. The test of liquidity is the availability of cash to meet the firm’s
obligations when they become due.
A firm maintains the operating cash balance for transaction purposes. It may also
carry additional cash as a buffer or safety stock. The amount of cash balance will depend on
the risk-return trade-off. If the firm maintains small cash balance, its liquidity position
weakens, but its profitability improves as the released funds can be invested in profitable
opportunities (marketable securities). When the firm needs cash, it can sell its keeps high
cash balance, it will have a strong liquidity position but its profitability will be low. The
potential profit foregone on holding large cash balance is an opportunity cost to the firm. The
firm should maintain optimum – just to enough, neither too much nor too little – cash
balance. How to determine the optimum cash balance if cash flows are predictable and if
they are not predictable.
Optimum cash balance under certainty
BAUMOL’S MODEL
The Baumol model of cash management provides a formal approach for determining a
firm’s optimum cash balance under certainty. It considers cash management similar to an

36
inventory management problem. As such, the firm attempts to minimize the sum of the cost
of holding cash (inventory of cash) and the cost of converting marketable securities to cash.
The baumol’s model makes the following assumptions:
 The firm is able to forecast its cash needs with certainty.
 The firm’s cash payments occur uniformly over a period of time.
 The opportunity cost of holding cash is known and it does not change over time.
 The firm will incur the firm sells securities and starts with a converts securities to
cash.

Optimum Cash Balance under uncertainty:


The Miller-Orr Model
The limitation of the Baumol model is that it does not allow the cash flows to
fluctuate. Firms in practice do not use their cash balance uniformly nor are they able to
predict do not use their cash inflows and outflows. The Miller-Orr model overcomes this
shortcoming and allows for daily cash flow variation. It assumes that net cash flows are
37
normally distributed with a zero value of mean and a standard deviation. The MO model
provides for two control limits-the upper control limit and the lower control limit as well as a
return point. If the firm’s cash flows fluctuate randomly and hit the upper limit, then it buys
sufficient marketable securities to come back to a normal level of cash balance (the return
point). Similarly, when the firm’s cash flows wander and hit the lower limit, it sells sufficient
marketable securities to bring the cash balance back to the normal level (the return point)

2. CASH MANAGEMENT AND CAPITAL BUDGETING PRACTICES

Virginia department of transportation Richmond, Virginia.

Our review has found that Transportation has made significant progress or completed
most of the recommendations made in our 2002 special report. Complete implementation of
these changes will take at least four to five years.

Over the last two years, Transportation’s management has started not only
implementing recommendations, but more importantly begun implementing a change in the
corporate and cultural structure of the organization. The success of change with
Transportation will depend on whether a true structural change in organization takes place.
The measure of success will require a substantial long-term commitment by management to
not only making the change, but to prevent backsliding into Transportation’s old approaches.

In some ways, the accomplishments to date are the easy part of change. The harder
part lays ahead in funding and implementing new systems, continuing to make the changes to
get closer to capital budgeting process, and overcoming Transportation’s corporate and

38
cultural structure to improve project management. The success of this effort is highly
dependent on management guidance and direction, and current management has
demonstrated their dedication towards this effort. If any management change occurs, it is
essential that they have the same commitment; otherwise, progress may be negatively
impacted.

Transportation is restoring fiscal accountability by implementing several budgetary


and financial changes, including adopting a debt management policy and model. Additionally,
they are establishing a methodology to identify statewide transportation priorities and
developing project management policies.

Transportation has completed several budgetary and financial changes, including attempts to
make the Six-Year Improvement Program a realistic management tool and reduce the projects
with a deficit status.
However, to ensure accurate matching on cash inflows and outflows, Transportation must
begin estimating the cost of projects by fiscal year. Transportation does not currently have
sufficient controls and processes in place to manage the rate at which they spend funds.

For major projects, Transportation has begun assigning a project management team that
follows a project from its inception to its completion. However, it is still too early in the
process to determine if the policies put into place will provide Transportation with better
project management. However, the actions to date are those considered best practices in both
the private and public for large organizations.

Maintenance is still an area of concern at Transportation. The growing maintenance


requirements and the limited ability to budget on a needs-based approach increases the risk of
inappropriately applied funding. Once the asset management system is fully implemented a
needs-based approach will be possible and Transportation will be able identify and prioritize
maintenance projects.

3. Ms. Katherine M. Landmann Controller Washington University in St.
Louis Campus.
This final report presents the results of our audit of the cash management procedures
used by Washington University in St. Louis (University) to control the funds paid by the
Payment Management System (PMS) during the three years ended June 30, 2000.

We found that the University did not have adequate policies and procedures in place
to monitor daily cash balances and to precisely calculate interest earned on positive daily cash
balances. In monitoring the daily cash balances, the University did not consider (1)
outstanding checks and (2) overhead costs as incurred. In addition, the University did not use
the appropriate interest rates when calculating the interest remitted to the Federal
government.

We determined that the amount of excess interest remitted by the University was
comparable to the amount of interest that should have been remitted if appropriate procedures
had been used. We believe that this occurrence was a coincidence due to off setting factors in
the University’s calculation of the amount to be remitted.

We are recommending that the University revise its written policies and procedures to
effectively monitor the daily cash balance and to accurately compute the Federal remittance.
We made four specific recommendations for improving the University’s cash management
procedures. The University concurred with two and is still evaluating the third. However,
they did not accept our fourth recommendation. The University’s response is included in its
entirety as Appendix A.

The chapter on adequacy and equity provides an understanding of the two concepts so
frequently debated in school finance. As more states struggle with funding issues, this subject
matter is timely and useful.

Cash Management seems intended for use nationwide with information on basic
school business procedures, including budgeting and financing of school facilities. The use of
lay terminology and relevant examples make the book valuable both in graduate school
classes on educational leadership and in the hands of practicing administrators.
