Working capital management has a great impact on the solvency of any business entity. This paper examines the impact of working capital management on the solvency of enterprises listed on the Vietnamese stock exchange. Data were collected from the financial statements of 395 enterprises listed on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange and the Hanoi Vietnam Stock Exchange with a total of 1,580 observations in the period of 2015 - 2018. The study used Ordinary Least Square (OLS), Fixed Effect Model (FEM), and Random Effect Model (REM) to investigate the impact of some variables such as average collection period index, inventory conversion cycle index, and average payment period index on the solvency in both short and long terms. The empirical results showed that the average collection period and inventory cycle have a positive impact on short-term solvency and long-term solvency while the average payment period has the opposite impact.
