- Current liabilities section of the company’s balance sheet of December 31, 2019.
- Current ratio of the company and comment on liquidity position of the company.
2. Current ratio = Current asset/ Current liabilities
= 2.625 times
Current assets = A/R + Inventory = 11,00,000 + 10,00,000 = 21,00,000
The current ratio of 2.625 times implies that for every rupee of current liabilities the firm has 2.625 in current assets. It is almost 2:1 and slightly more which represent the company has enough current assets to pay the short term debts. So, the XYZ Company is in high liquidity position.
