Whereas activity ratio or turnover ratio is a measure to determine whether company's management is capable of generating enough revenues and cash from its resources.e.g how much time it takes to convert inventory into cash,how rapidly debts are collected.

Activity ratios measure a firm's ability to convert different accounts within its balance sheets into cash or sales.Companies typically try to turn their production into cash or sales as fast as possible because this will generally lead to higher revenues, so analysts perform fundamental analysis by using common ratios such as the total assets turnover ratio and inventory turnover.

Difference between liquidlty ratio and activity ration

Post by kartikay tiwari on Sun Sep 11, 2016 10:00 pm

Liquidity ratios determine a company's ability to pay off its short-term debt obligations and convert its assets to cash. It is important that a company has the ability to convert its short-term assets into cash so it can meet its short-term debt obligations. A healthy liquidity ratio is also essential when the company wants to purchase additional assets.
One common liquidity ratio is the current ratio. The current ratio measures a company's ability to meet its short-term debt obligations. It is calculated by dividing its current assets by its current liabilities. Generally, a higher current ratio indicates that the company is capable of paying off all of its short-term debt obligations.

Activity ratios assess how effectively a company is able to generate revenue in the form of cash and sales based on its asset, liability and capital share accounts. Examples of such ratios include the inventory turnover ratio and the accounts receivable turnover ratio.
Activity ratios are critical in evaluating a company's fundamentals because, in addition to expressing how well a company generates revenue, activity ratios also indicate how well the company is being managed.

Both of the ratios are very very important and interdependent while analyzing a firm's position

Activity ratios assess how effectively a company is able to generate revenue in the form of cash and sales based on its asset, liability and capital share accounts. Examples of such ratios include the inventory turnover ratio and the debtors turnover ratio.
However, when we talk about liquidity ratios, they simply assess the ability of a company to pay off its current liabilities.

Generation of revenue may or may not be in cash and so, activity ratios do not specify the generation in terms of cash. Liquidity simply focuses on the cash that is readily available for the payment of liabilities.
