    Current Assets
    Current Liabilities

    This is a liquidity ratio. It shows how many times your current assets cover your current liabilities and should therefore be at the very least 1.

    thanks - that is what i wrote, but it seemed a bit too simple.

  • Quick Current Ratio (acid test)

    = (Current Assets - Stock) / Current Liabilities

    I prefer this one as I believe that adding the stock doesn't give a true picture of the debtors strength against the creditors.

    Current Ratio should ideally be 2:1 because of stock being difficult to turn into cash which is why acid test gives a better picture and should be 1:1 but also if current ratio is greater than 2:1 then the company is maybe not investing its assets properly
