Coefficient analysis is aimed at reflecting the picture of the financial condition of the company by some standard coefficients. This section of the standard analysis of the business plan of the project (the company's budget plan) is called a financial or "coefficient" analysis.

## Coefficient analysis

✎ Budget-Plan Express is a software product for preparing business plans and presentations in Word and Excel format - for small businesses and studies (students, MBI students, etc.) More ... To calculate the financial and economic indicators, you need to perform a general calculation: Main menu → «Data → Calculate» – choose from the list of calculations "Financial analysis" (same thing: F9).

However, before you perform the calculation, you need to set up a table of normative values.

In performing the coefficient analysis, structured (for example, liquidity) data of the balance sheet and profit report are used. Below is the structure of the balance in Budget-Plan Express:

### Balance sheet structure
