The owners' prosperity level represents the high firm value. Investors' primary focus has shifted to the firm's value. The firm's value reflects the prosperity of its shareholders and investors. One of the primary company goals is to obtain maximum profit from business activities. However, the purpose of establishing a company is not only to achieve maximum profit but also to increase the prosperity of parties related to the company's business activities, such as shareholders and stakeholders, so that the company's value increases. Thus, the current investigation examines the relationship between working capital management and leverage towards firm value in the Indonesia Stock Exchange. This quantitative study utilized secondary data from the Central Bureau of Statistics of Indonesia from 2016 to 2020. The data were analyzed using time series regression by assisting econometrical software, namely EVIEWS-10. The results indicated that Working Capital Management positively and significantly affects firm Value. Besides that, leverage has a negative and significant effect on Firm Value.
