Leverage The Top 5 Profitability Ratios With Docyt

As a business owner or financial manager, understanding the health of your company in monetary terms is key in a complex business environment. The profitability ratios are among the most crucial indicators in such a quest as they provide a clear image of how well the company is generating earnings against the revenue, assets, equity, and other financial facets. For the more than 33,185,550 small businesses across the U.S.— many are turning to Docyt as an AI-powered accounting automation software— seamlessly integrating profitability ratios into your financial analysis delivers a higher fidelity of insights, more robust strategies and a more efficient financial process.

Five Primary Profit Ratios:

  1.  Gross Profit Margin Ratio

    This ratio looks at the proportion of money remaining from revenue after deducting the cost of goods sold and shows how well the company transforms its cost of goods into profit.

    Calculated using the formula:  Gross Profit Margin = (Net Sales – Cost of Goods Sold)/ Net Sales * 100%

  2. Net Profit Margin Ratio

    The ratio provides a clear image of the final result available for the company’s investors and illustrates the position where profitability meets the income statement.

    Calculated using the formula: Net Profit Margin = (Net Profits After Tax/Net Sales) * 100

  3. Return on Assets Ratio

    This ratio depicts the returns generated from assets, irrespective of the financing structure. It provides a clear image of the business’s current financial performance while disclosing management’s ability to transform investments into profit.

    The formula used to calculate the Ratio:  Return On Assets = (Net Profits Before Taxes + (Interest Expense*(1-Tax Rate)))/ Total Assets

  4. Return on Equity Ratio

    This ratio is vital as it indicates the returns generated on the funds invested by the company’s owners and shows the return earned on investment.

    Calculated using the formula: Return on Equity = (Net Income/Shareholders’ Equity) * 100

  5.  EBITDA Ratio

    The “earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization” provides a snapshot of a business’s profitability with a comprehensive metric that removes all non-operating effects.

    The formula for calculating the ratio:  EBITDA = Operating Profits + Depreciation + Amortization

What is a profitability ratio?

In basic terms, these profitability ratios calculate the profit a corporation makes from its operations. They are crucial factors in the valuation and assessment of business by stockholders, investors, management, and analysts.
