BUSINESS HEALTH CHECK

The aim of the business health check is to provide you and stakeholders an overview of the current financial situation and SWOT analysis of your business to help identify areas of strength and weakness in your business.

It is designed to give a snapshot of the current business position from the last three years financials. This will help identify trends and areas of both strength and weakness in the business.

Key ratios and benchmarks provided include:

  • LVR – Loan valuation ratio, a key ratio
    banks use to determine your risk factor.
  • Return on Equity.
  • Return on assets.
  • Asset turnover ratio.
  • Overhead cost ratio
  • TPML – total plant and machinery.
  • GM/ha.
  • GM/dse.
  • Yield kg grain/100mm rainfall.
  • Revenue per labour unit.
  • Depreciation per hectare

An understanding of these key ratios can help business owners and stake holders have more informed conversation around the following areas:
