Now is the time for a year end financial snapshot
Abstract: One job that should be at the top of a dealership’s year end priority list is conducting a recap of 2014 financial performance with their accountant. The review will provide a comprehensive snapshot of the dealership’s financial position toward the end of the year. It also will lay the groundwork for the 2015 financial forecast and budget. This article discusses some of the financial ratios that demand especially close attention, including gross and net profit margins, fixed costs, inventory turnover and current ratio.
