Ans. Rs. 210

Q:- 9. Do you know, how much working capital, we need for production of per unit?

Ans. Rs. 210, it may be in cash or kind because working capital is excess of current assets over current liabilities. For example, we have only debtors and only creditors. Then excess of debtors over creditors will be our working capital which is not in cash but still working capital. After getting money from debtor, we can convert working capital into cash. Then cash will also be working capital.

Q:- 12. Do you know, finished goods are the part of current asset?

Q:- 13. Do you know, when we will calculate the cost of finished goods, we will add raw material cost, labor cost and overhead cost?

Q:- 14. Do you know, creditors are the part of our current liabilities?

Q:- 15. Do you know, when we calculate the value of creditors, we will adjust the amount of given advance to them?

Q:- 16. Do you know bank balance at the end will be the part of current asset? 

Dear judge, give me two days more, as per given facts by my client, I have collected some facts.  I have to do more research. Only after two days, I can go to analyze and then take best decision about the correct estimation of working capital.
