Financial ratio calculators

Financial ratios are a way to evaluate the performance of your business and identify potential problems. Each ratio informs you about factors such as the earning power, solvency, efficiency and debt load of your business.

Bankers will often make financial ratios a part of your loan agreement. For instance, you may have to keep your equity above a certain percentage of your debt, or your current assets above a certain percentage of your current liabilities. However, don’t wait until you are visiting your banker to evaluate your ratios. Ideally, you should review them monthly to keep on top of changing trends in your company.
