The quick assets ratio provides a more conservative measure than the working capital ratio in that it excludes stock (inventory). A ratio greater than 1:1 (i.e. 2:1) indicates that current liabilities can be met from current assets without having to liquidate stock.

Ratios should be considered over a period of time (say three years), in order to identify trends in the performance of the business.

The calculation used to obtain the ratio is:


Quick Assets Ratio =

  Current Assets - Stock  
      Current Liabilities
