Liquidity KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) in a company are measures used to evaluate the organization’s ability to meet its short-term financial obligations. These indicators are essential to understand your financial health and strength in terms of your ability to cover your debts and immediate expenses.

Let’s see what are the main KPIs that you can use in your business:

Immediate liquidity ratio

Quick Ratio

Current Ratio

Immediate Liquidity Ratio

Formula:

Immediate Liquidity Ratio  =Current Assets / Current Liabilities

This ratio shows the company’s ability to cover its short-term obligations with its current assets. A value greater than 1 indicates an adequate capacity to cover short-term debts.

Quick Ratio:

 Formula:

Quick Ratio = (Current Assets – Inventory) / Current Liabilities

This indicator is similar to the liquidity ratio, but excludes inventory. It provides a stricter measure of a company’s ability to meet its short-term obligations.

Current Ratio:

Formula:

Cash Ratio =  Cash and Cash Equivalents / Current Liabilities

Measures a company’s ability to meet its short-term obligations using only cash and cash equivalents.
