An ideal reference for CPAs, controllers, bankers, CFOs, tax lawyers, financial analysts, investment advisors and corporate planners. This comprehensive annual reference features 76 key financial ratios calculated from the latest income statement and balance sheet data available from Internal Revenue Service corporate tax returns. Extensive and complete are the only words to describe this reference. Common financial ratios are presented as well as special ratios used by sophisticated business planners and analysts. One page per NAICS industry (over 250 in all) shows ratios for profitable firms versus firms with losses in up to four asset size classes. The extensive introduction fully describes each ratio, including how to calculate and interpret each financial ratio. In April 2016 the current 31st edition was published.
IRS-CALC, an Excel spreadsheet, allows you to calculate your own ratios based on income statement and balance sheet data and compare them with industry norms.
