Financial Ratios Scorecard

NetSuite provides a prebuilt Financial Ratios scorecard to help you analyze your business's financial position and operating efficiency. This scorecard includes metrics built with embedded formulas that incorporate standard NetSuite key performance indicators (KPIs).

The scorecard displays metrics for the current accounting period and the previous accounting period, and shows the percentage change between periods for each metric. Metrics include:

To view the formulas used to calculate these metrics, see Financial Ratios Scorecard Formulas.

The Financial Ratios scorecard's data is based on a set of NetSuite standard reports, and you can click on the scorecard's metrics to drill down into each of the detailed reports. By default, the scorecard is available to you only if you have permission to view the Trial Balance report. If you have this permission, you can display this scorecard in your KPI Scorecard portlet.

Administrators can review this scorecard's definitions and modify them to create a custom Financial Ratios scorecard, including giving permission to additional users to display the scorecard on their dashboard by changing the audience for the scorecard. For information, see Editing a KPI Scorecard.
