Abstract:This paper aims at exploring the determinants of cash holdings for Dutch SMEs. The cash holdings or equivalents are the instruments which are kept as liquid assets. The companies have different motives to hold the cash for their immediate nature of expenses or operational needs. The smaller firms might not have enough assets on their back up to meet their financial obligations; therefore, they are in more need to retain some of their earnings as cash holdings to meet pressing cash needs. The research will aim identifying the factors which determine the extent to which the companies will hold cash as not every small firm can hold a same level of cash; this is the major objective of the research to identify these factors. Literature review will unearth major determinants of cash holdings through which this paper will further explore the independent factors. Keeping in mind this objective, the research is exploratory in nature.
