A Return on Capital the self-employed or often abbreviated with ROCE is the ratio of profitability that measures how efficient the company generates profit from Capital works. In other words, return on Capital the self-employed or ROCE is able to indicate to investors how much profit is generate from every dollar invest.

The ratio of ROCE is base on two important calculations i.e. operating profit (Net Operating Profit) and working capital (the self-employed Capital) use. NET operating profit or Net Operating Profit is often also refer to as EBIT (Earnings before Interest and Tax) or income before interest and taxes.

EBIT is often report on the income statement because it show corporate profits resulting from the operation. the second component is calculate on a working capital ratio of ROCE is use (the self-employed Capital). In General, the working capital use in this calculation is the total assets minus all the obligations of the company or the shareholders ' Equity is reduce by all its obligations.

How to calculate the ratio of ROCE?

Here is a way to calculate the ratio of ROCE along with the formula ROCE and sample case.

The formula of the ratio of Return on Capital the self-employed (ROCE) or the ratio of return on working capital

ROCE Ratio formula or Payback Ratio can be calculated by dividing the net operating profit EBIT or with working capital used. The following is the equation or Formula ROCE.

Return on Capital the self-employed (ROCE) = operating profit/net working capital

or

Return on Capital (ROCE) Self-employed = net operating Profit/ (Total Assets – Liabilities)

Example of calculation of the ratio of ROCE or the ratio of return on working capital

A company engage in manufacturing have total assets of as much as us \$1 billion with its obligations amounting to \$. 250 million. In the same year, the company manage to acquire net operating profit amount to \$ 900 million.

What is the ratio of ROCE that company?

Note:

Operating profit = NET 900 million,-
Total assets = \$ 1 billion,-
= \$. 250 million Liability
ROCE =?

The solution:

(1) ROCE = net operating Profit/(Total Assets – Liabilities)
(2) ROCE = 900 million/(1 billion – 250 million)
(3) ROCE = 900 million/750 million
ROCE = 1.2 times

So the ratio of return on working capital or Return on Capital the self-employed (ROCE) for this company is of 1.2 times.

Analysis and assessment of the ratio of ROCE or the ratio of return on working capital

From the example above we can see that the results of the calculation of the company's ROCE is 1.2 times. This means that every dollar invest into working capital will generate \$. 1.2 the profits or net operating profit. The ratio of return on working capital indicates how much profit can generate every Rupiah from working capital. A higher ratio would be more profitable because more of the profits generate by any working capital Dollars invest.
