Abstract


In any economy, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play an important role because they are capable of generating employment, fostering GDP growth, embarking on innovation and stimulating other economic activities. The foundation of all developed and emerging nations is said to be this business. The growth of the small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) sector is of vital importance to every country, regardless of its level of development, as this sector has great potential to produce full socio-economic benefits for a country with a minimum level of investment. In their first five years of existence, the number of small and medium-scale enterprises die, and a few numbers of companies go through extinction between the sixth and tenth years. Yet 5 % to 10% of small and medium-sized companies will thrive, prosper, and mature. The cause for this is not simply a lack of money and it could be poor cash management practises. The investigator sought to examine cash management activities of small and medium businesses in this article. A comprehensive analysis with a formal questionnaire from a survey of 360 including 346 small and 14 medium-sized enterprises in the districts of Visakhapatnam and Vizianagaram was used.
