# 9 Current Ratio

The current ratio shows whether you have more assets or debts, or liabilities, at this time in your business. The current ratio is divided out into a decimal number. If the number is greater than 1, that means you have more assets than debts. If it is less than 1, that means you have more debts than assets. You want your current ratio to be more than 1. The formula for calculating current ratio is:

Let’s say you have a debt of \$23,051.13, and you own equipment worth \$32,985.01, furniture worth \$1,009.25, and inventory worth \$3,711.21. Your total assets are \$32,985.01 + \$1,009.25 + \$3,711.21 = \$37,705.47.
