# From the Following Information, Compute Debt-equity Ratio Long-term Borrowing 8,00,000 Long Term Provision 4,00,000 Current Liabilities 2,00,000 - Accountancy

#### Question

From the Following information, compute Debt-Equity Ratio

 Rs Long-Term Borrowings 8,00,000 Long-Term Provision 4,00,000 Current Liabilities 2,00,000 Non-Current-Assets 14,40,000 Current -Assets 3,60,000

#### Solution

Debt Equity Ratio = "Long - Term Debt"/"Shareholder's Funds"

Total Assets = total Liabilities + Shareholder’s Funds

Total Assets = Current Assets + Non-Current Assets
= 3,60,000 + 14,40,000 = Rs 18,00,000

Total Liabilities = Long-Term Borrowings + Long-Term Provisions + Current Liabilities
= 8,00,000 +4,00,000 + 2,00,000 = Rs 14,00,000

Therefore, Shareholder's funds = Total Assets -Total Liabilities
= 18,00,000 -14,00,000 = Rs 4,00,000

Long-Term Debt = Long Term Borrowings + Long-term Provisions
= 8,00,000 +4,00,000 = Rs  12,00,000

Therefore, Debt-equity ratio = 1200000/400000 = 3:1
