Is it the same formula for calculating this for Capital Budgeting and FCF?

Yep

check explanation on page 385 volume 4 in general accounting WC is current assets less current liabilities but for cashflow and valuation WC excludes cash, cash equivalent, short term debt,and current portion of long term debt

i have never seen the CL-interest bearing debt described as “less interest bearing debt” reference? it makes sense and I believe you since it works in the calculations, but is this in CFAI?

This is from Stalla and is consistent with their 2009 and 2010 material.
