The paper aims to examine the impact of leverage structure dynamics on firm value in Bangladesh. To this end, the panel techniques (GMM and PCSE) were used to control for serial correlation, heteroskedasticity, and cross-sectional difficulties in the panel data set. The paper found that leverage structure influences firm value. The result also supports the trade-off theory, which asserts that tax savings on interest expenses result in a lower total cost of capital and ultimately upturn firm value. Lastly, the paper highlights the significance of endogenous variables such as liquidity, profitability, tangibility, and tax rate on firm value in Bangladesh.
