Quick Ratio Calculator

The quick ratio calculator is a great tool to help you calculate the value of a quick ratio - one of the simple liquidity indicators used in corporate finance to assess the liquidity of a company.

Understanding the quick ratio formula

The quick ratio formula divides liquid assets by liabilities and looks like this:
quick ratio = liquid assets / current liabilities
Liquid assets include anything you can sell for cash quickly and at book value (or close to it). You’ll probably need to do some accounting to get your total liquid assets. So the formula looks a little closer to this in reality:
quick ratio = (cash and cash equivalents + marketable securities + accounts receivable) / total current liabilities
Liabilities include anything that’s owed — loans primarily. The fastest way to get this figure is to look it up on the balance sheet.
