Financing Requirements:

A firm's financing requirements range across various requirements and periods.

  • The firm's financing requirements can be separated into D) seasonal and permanent.

B) current assets and fixed assets - The current assets and the fixed assets are present as a result of the financing source and are not financing the source themselves.

C) current liabilities and long-term debt - In addition to debt, there are many other financing sources such as equity which form the permanent financing source.
