1. Financial ratio analysis - long term solvency ratios.

The debt ratio is designed to indicate the ability of a business to meet its financial obligations in the medium and longer term.

It is sometimes calculated as:

Total liabilities divided by Total assets.


An alternative calculation of the debt ratio is:

Total debt divided by Total assets.

Here as elsewhere, consistency of definition and application is essential.
