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.

Hello,

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
