## What is a company's current ratio or working capital ratio?

*A current ratio* is a liquidity ratio that gives an at-a-glance check on a company's ability to pay its liabilities due in the following 12 months using assets currently on the books. It shows a company's ability to pay short-term liabilities without bringing in additional cash. It's also sometimes called the *working capital ratio*.

A current ratio of 1 or higher means a company can likely meet its short term liquidity needs, even without further cash.

### Current Ratio Formula

The current ratio formula is:

current\ ratio=\frac{current\ assets}{current\ liabilities}

*Where:*

**Current Assets**– Short-term assets listed on the company's balance sheet**Current Liabilities**– Short-term liabilities listed on the balance sheet
