QUESTION 1

  • Current ratio = current assets/ current liabilities = $88,259/ $57,487 = 1.53528:1
  • Liquidity ratios:

    Current ratio = current assets / current liabilities = $88,259/ $57,487 = 1.53528:1

    Quick Ratio = (Current Assets –Inventory) /current Liabilities = 88,259 – 52,600 / 57,487 = 0.62:1

    Gearing Ratio = Total debt / total equity = 67,487 / 42,372 = 1.5927:1

  • The current ratio is a measurement of the company’s ability to pay off debts and payables. Therefore having a higher Current Ratio is very good for the business.
  • It is a way of finding out the company’s efficiency and operational cycles. Usually companies that have trouble paying off their debts and payables will not be able to survive if the keep their current ratio down.

    Liquidity ratio is similar to the Current ratio as it can measure that company’s capability to pay off their debts. It is generally the ability for a company to liquidate their assets, meaning to turn assets into cash. The other liquidity ratio is the quick ratio. With both ratios, it is best to have at least 1-2 ratio but higher is better.

    The gearing ratio the measurement of how much leverage the company has when it comes to the way it is operated. This means that it is generally the amount of the business that is actually owned outright compared to how much is paid by borrowed money and loans.

  • The liquidity ratio of this company is too low. There needs to be a high liquidity for the company to ensure that they can pay for bills and expenses on time and easily.
  • Using sweep accounts is good for increasing the interest of the company by transferring money to and from high interest accounts when they are needed and when they are not.
  • Making sure that the overhead costs are as low as possible. This is directly decrease the amount of profit that the company can achieve.
  • Assets that are not needed anymore should not be stored for a time that may or may not happen. The unproductive assets should be sold while the assets have not depreciated.
  • Monitor the companies accounts receivable to check all transactions and make sure that they are arriving on time.
  • Try to negotiate longer payment terms to keep liquidity high.
  • Making sure that money is not taken out of the business for non-business reasons. Try to minimize owner draws.
  • Try to increase profit where it is achievable.
