The cheapest source of finance is _____.


ANSWER

Retained earning


SOLUTION
Retained Earnings
The portion of net profit distributed to shareholders is called dividend and the remaining portion of the profit is called retained earning. In other word, the amount of undistributed profit which is available for investment is called retained earning. Retained earning is considered as internal source of long-term financing and it is a part of shareholders equity.Generally, retained earning is considered as cost free source of financing. It is because neither dividend nor interest is payable on retained profit.
