    Hi Alwa

    Return on Capital employed is calculated as follows;

    Net Profit / capital employed X 100

    I'm not sure what course companion is I'm afraid

    You mention that it is done a different way, it could be that you need to work it out in days rather than a percentage. If that is the case, you need to do "capital employed / Net Profit X 365". This causes a lot of confusion because the capital employed and net profit switch between calculating % or days.

    Capital Employed = Equity + Non-current Liabilities or...

    Non Current Assets + Current Assets - Current Liabilties (ie: ignore Non-current liabilitIes)

    Return On Capital Employed = Operating Profit / Captial Employed X 100
