  • 5. Gross profit to INCREASE. The gross profit can increase. A rise in the gross profit percentage is almost always due to increased efficiency.
  • 6. Rate of Stock Turnover The Rate of Stock Turnover is very important. When a company turns over stock - profit is made. Stock has turned over when it has been sold and replaced with new stock. The higher a company turns over stock the greater the profits should be. Stock Turnover is always expressed as a number followed by the word times.
  • 7. If your Rate of Stock Turnover is 4 times then the company would have turned the stock over every 3 months. We calculate the Rate of Stock Turnover with the following formula: Cost of Goods Sold Average Stock * * To calculate Average Stock Opening Stock + Closing Stock
  • 8. Net Profit as a Percentage of Net Sales The Net Profit Percentage indicates how well a business has controlled their overheads. The Net Profit is calculated by deducting the total expenses from the gross profit. We calculate the Net Profit Percentage of Net Sales with the following formula: Net Profit x 100 Turnover

  • 12. Poor returns on capital should make the owners or partners think whether continuing with the business is a good idea. To calculate the Return on Capital Invested we use the formula: Net Profit x 100 Capital at Start
  • 13. Working (Current) Capital Ratio The Working Capital Ratio or Current Ratio focuses on the relationship between a businesses current assets and current liabilities. The formula to calculate this ratio is: Current Assets Current Liabilities
  • 14. A business must never run short of working capital. This is a very popular cause for business failures. If a business has a ratio of less than 1:1 then in effect it is insolvent. Low ratio indicates a lack of working capital. High ratio indicated there may be too much working capital. Too much money tied up in stock or other assets.
