5 Ratios That Shows Your Business Health

5 Ratios That Shows Your Business Health

How frequently do you enquire about the health of your business? Remember, it is not enough to simply check your profitability statements and your balance sheets. Along with these, you need to periodically check your business against the numbers that a handful of ratios throw up. These ratios come from various areas – the business’s operations, inventory management, profits, loans and investments. Big or small, new or old, financial ratios are a mirror of your business’s health. They help in:

• Keeping you updated about your current profitability and identify the components that are attributing to it
• Ascertaining the business’s solvency position and helping you plan your loan repayments judiciously
• Identifying the business’s strengths and weaknesses and hence, take adequate measures to stay on course
• Estimating future trends and make strategic plans

Here are the top 5 ratios that you can bank on to speak the truth about your business:

Debt-Equity Ratio:

• This ratio indicates the proportion of equity and debt used by your business to finance its assets.
• Calculated as Total Liabilities / Shareholders Equity
• Too high a debt-equity ratio indicates that your business is too dependent on outsider loans, while if the ratio is too low, it will indicate you are not taking optimum opportunity of available loans and are instead, risking your own capital.
• The ideal debt-equity ratio is 2:1

Current Ratio:

• This ratio shows your business’s ability to pay back current/ immediate liabilities
• Calculated as Current Assets / Current Liabilities
• Too high a current ratio will indicate that your business is not utilizing its working capital optimally, while too low a ratio indicate that it’s short-term position is not very sound
• The ideal current ratio is 2:1

• This ratio is a measure of performance
• It evaluates the efficiency of an investment or to compare the efficiency of a number of different investments
• Calculated as (Gain from investment – Cost of Investment)/ Cost of Investment

Net-Profit Ratio:

• Net profit ratio is a key ratio of profitability
• It shows the amount of each sales rupee left over after all expenses have been paid.
• Calculated as Profit (after tax) / Revenue
• A higher net profit ratio means that your business is more efficient at converting sales into actual profit.

Stock Turnover Ratio:

• This ratio measures how fast the inventory in your business is moving and generating sales
