## Classification of Ratios

Classification of Ratios : Accounting ratios are used to analyse the financial position of the firm. They are being categorised into different types which are given as below:

- Balance Sheet Ratios
- Statement of Profit & Loss Ratios
- Composite Ratios

However, from the users point of view, they are interested to know about the liquidity, solvency, turnover and profitability of the organisation. So, the main categories of ratio from financial users perspective are:

Liquidity Ratios : Liquidity means the firms ability to meet its current liabilities. In other words, the ability of a business to pay its short-term debts is frequently referred to as liquidity position of the business. Short term creditors of the firm are generally interested to know about the liquidity position of the firm. The liquidity ratio is further categorised into two parts: (i) Current Ratio & (ii) Liquid Ratio

**a. Current Ratio :** It shows the relationship between current assets and current liabilities. It is also known as working capital ratio. **The ideal current ratio is 2:1. **The term current assets means the assets which are easily convertible into cash or cash equivalents within 12 months & the term current liabilities means the liabilities which are payable within a period of 12 months.

**b. Liquid Ratio :** It shows the relationship between liquid assets and current liabilities. It is also known as acid test ratio or quick ratio. **The ideal liquid ratio is 1:1. **The term liquid assets means the assets which are easily convertible into cash or cash equivalents very shortly. All current assets except inventories and prepaid expenses are included in liquid assets.

**Computation of current ratio**

#### Classification of Ratios : Example 1

On the basis of the following information calculate the current ratio:

**Explanation : –**

Current ratio =

Current ratio =

Current ratio = 3.5 :1

Working note 1 : Current assets = Inventory + Trade receivable + Current investment + Prepaid expenses + Advance tax

Current assets = 45000 + 50000 + 100000 + 55000 + 450000

Current assets = 700000

Working note 2 : Current liabilities = Bank overdraft + Trade payables + Other current liabilities

Current liabilities = 100000 + 60000 + 40000

200000

**Computation of liquidity ratio**

#### Classification of Ratios : Example 2

On the basis of the following information calculate the liquidity ratio:

**Explanation : –**

Liquidity ratio =

Liquidity ratio =

Liquidity ratio = 0.5 :1

Working note 1 : Liquid assets = Current assets (-) ( Stock + Prepaid expenses + Advance tax )

Liquid assets = 160000 (-) 30000 + 25000 + 40000

Liquid assets = 65000

Working note 2 : Current assets = Stock + Sundry debtors + Current investment + Prepaid expenses + Advance tax

Current assets = 30000 + 50000 + 15000 + 25000 + 40000

Current assets = 160000

Working note 3 : Current liabilities = Bank overdraft + Trade payables + Other current liabilities

#### Solvency Ratio Analysis

Solvency Ratio Analysis : It measure the ability of a business to survive for a long period of time. These ratios are very important for stockholders and creditors as these ratios assess the ability of the firm to meet its long term liabilities.

The solvency ratios are categorised into following types :

a) Debt Equity Ratio

b) Total Assets to Debt Ratio

c) Proprietary Ratio

d) Interest Coverage Ratio

**Debt Equity Ratio**

It explains the relationship between long term debts and shareholder’s funds. The debt-equity ratio of 2:1 is considered as ideal.

Here, Debt includes Long-term Borrowings and Long-term Provisions. Shareholder’s Funds include Share Capital and Reserve & Surplus.

**Total Assets to Debt Ratio**

This ratio is a variation of debt-equity ratio. In this ratio, assets are expressed in terms of long term debts.

Here, Total Assets = Non- Current Assets + Non-Current Investments + Long Term Loans & Advances + Current Assets

Debts = Long-term Borrowings and Long-term Provisions

**Proprietary Ratio**

It is the proportion of total assets funded by the shareholders. A higher proprietary ratio is an indicator of sound financial position from long-term point of view.

## Activity Ratio Analysis

Activity Ratio Analysis – Activity ratios are financial analysis tools used to measure a business’ ability to convert its assets into cash. These ratios are known as turnover ratios because they indicate the rapidity with which the resources available to the concern are being used to produce revenue from operations.

The different types of activity ratios are:

- Inventory Turnover Ratio
- Trade Receivables Turnover Ratio
- Trade Payables Turnover Ratio
- Working Capital Turnover Ratio

#### Inventory Turnover Ratio

It indicates the relationship between the cost of revenue from operations during the year and average inventory during the year.

Here, Cost of Revenue from Operations = Opening Inventory + Purchases + Carriage Inward + Wages + Other Direct Charges – Closing Inventory

#### Trade Payables Turnover Ratio

It indicates the relationship between credit purchases and average trade payables during the year.

Trade Payables include Creditors and Bills Payables.

#### Trade Receivables Turnover Ratio

It indicates the relationship between credit revenue from operations and average trade receivables during the year.

#### Profitability Ratios

It is also known as income ratio. The objective of every organisation is to earn profit and hence the organisations would definitely want to keep a track on various aspects of profit like operating profit, net profit etc. Therefore, they prepare and compute the profitability ratios.

The different types of profitability ratios are:

- Gross Profit Ratio
- Operating Ratio
- Net Profit Ratio
- Operating Profit Ratio
- Earning Per Share

#### Gross Profit Ratio

This ratio establishes a relationship between Gross profit and revenue from Operations i.e. Net Sales.

Gross Profit = Revenue from Operations – Cost of Revenue from Operations

Cost of Revenue from Operations = Opening Inventory + Purchases + Carriage Inward + Wages + Other Direct Charges – Closing Inventory

#### Operating Ratio

This ratio compares an enterprise’s cost of revenue from operations and operating expenses to its revenue from operations.

Cost of Revenue from Operations = Opening Inventory + Purchases + Carriage Inward + Wages + Other Direct Charges – Closing Inventory

Operating Expenses = Employee Benefit Expense + Depreciation Expense + Other Expense

#### Net Profit Ratio

This ratio establishes a relationship between Net profit and revenue from Operations i.e. Net Sales.

#### Operating Profit Ratio

Operating Profit = Gross Profit – Other Operating Expenses + Other Operating Incomes

#### Earning Per Share

Earning per share helps in calculating the profitability of the company.
