Short term Assets & Liabilities

  • Current Assets: Assets that are expected to be converted into cash in less than 12 months: Cash, Accounts Receivables, Inventory, Prepaid Expenses (expressed in currency)
  • Current Liabilities: Bills that must be paid within 12 months of the date of the Balance Sheet: Accounts Payable, Accrued Expenses, Current Portion of Debt, Income Taxes Payable (expressed in currency)
  • Working Capital: Amount of money the enterprise has to work with in the short-term (also called 'Net Current Assets' or 'Funds') (expressed in currency)

Long term Assets & Liabilities

  • Non-Current Assets: Long-term investments that are not easily converted to cash or are not expected to become cash within an accounting year (expressed in currency)
  • Non-Current Liabilities: Long Term financial obligations that become due beyond 12 months (expressed in currency)

Total Assets & Liabilities

  • Total Assets: The final amount of all gross investments, cash and equivalents, receivables, and other assets as they are presented on the balance sheet (expressed in currency)
  • Total Liabilities: Current Liabilities and Long-Term Debt (expressed in currency)
  • Total Equity: Determines how much a company would have left over in assets if the company went out of business immediately (expressed in currency)

Liquidity Ratios

  • Current ratio: Business's ability to meet its payment obligations as they fall due
  • Quick ratio: Determine a debtor's ability to pay off current debt obligations with its most liquid assets (i.e.: "Cash" and "Accounts Receivable")

Leverage Ratios

  • Debt-to-Equity Ratio: Measures the degree to which a company is financing its operations with debt rather than its own resources
  • Debt Ratio: Measures the extent of a company’s leverage. It can be interpreted as the proportion of a company’s assets that are financed by debt
  • Debt-to-Asset Ratio: Defines how much debt a company owns compared to its assets. This information reflects how financially stable a company is (expressed in %)

Required attributes

  • Month (date): Month
  • KPI Code (string): KPI Code according to defined rules (*)
  • KPI Breakdown (string): Level of detail that identifies the nature of the revenue, expense, asset or liability (**)

(*) "KPI Code" is an attribute where specific values are expected:

  • 'CASSETS'**: Current Assets
  • 'CLIABILITIES'**: Current Liabilities
  • 'NASSETS'**: Noncurrent Assets
  • 'NLIABILITIES'**: Noncurrent Liabilities

(**) "KPI Breakdown" is an attribute for which specific values are expected in certain special cases:

KPI Code = 'CASSETS' (Current Assets)

  • KPI Breakdown='Cash' → Refers to the amount of readily available cash held
  • KPI Breakdown='Accounts Receivable' → Refers to the amount of money owed by customers for goods or services provided on credit
  • KPI Breakdown='Inventory' → Refers to the value of goods, products or materials held in inventory Current Liabilities
  • KPI Breakdown='xxx' → Any other type of Current Asset (replace 'xxx' with your breakdown of 'Current Assets')

KPI Code = 'CLIABILITIES' (Current Liabilities)

  • KPI Breakdown='Accounts Payable' → Refers to the amount of money owed to suppliers
  • KPI Breakdown='xxx' → Any other type of Current Liability (replace 'xxx' with your breakdown of 'Current Liabilities')

KPI Code = 'NASSETS' (Non-Current Assets)

  • KPI Breakdown='xxx' → Any type of Non-Current Asset (replace 'xxx' with your breakdown of 'Non-Current Assets')
