- ROCE Calculator.
- EBIT & CE Calculations (4 Ways).
- Comparative ROCE (5 Years).

### ROCE Calculator

In this section, insert EBIT(Earnings Before Interest and Taxes) and CE(Capital Employed) amounts to derive ROCE of any company.

Many times it happens that EBIT and CE figures aren’t available in annual reports or financial statements. In such cases, you can calculate both in 4 different ways that we will discuss in the below section.

As soon as you enter the EBIT and CE amounts, the template automatically calculates ROCE by applying the above-mentioned formula.

### EBIT & CE Calculations (4 Ways)

When the value of EBIT and capital employed is not directly known, the first step is to calculate EBIT and capital employed. To do so here are 4 ways to calculate both EBIT and CE. You can use any combinations to derive ROCE.

#### Calculating Operating profit(EBIT)

To calculate Operating Profit or EBIT, you will require elements of the Profit and Loss Account. You can calculate EBIT in 4 different ways as follows:

- EBIT can be derived by subtracting COGS(Cost of Goods Sold) and other business expenses from the Net Sales of the company. Other Business Expenses include employee benefit expenses, other expenses, and depreciation.

**Thus, EBIT= Sales – COGS – Other Business Expenses** - The second way to derive EBIT is by subtracting depreciation from EBITDA assumed that EBITDA already includes other income.

**Thus, EBIT= EBITDA- Depreciation.** - You can also derive EBIT by adding Interest and Taxes to the Profit After Tax amount of the company.

**Thus, EBIT= PAT+ Interest+ Depreciation.** - The fourth way to calculate EBIT is by adding the Interest amount to Profit Before Tax of the company.

**Thus, EBIT= PBT+Interest.**

All the above 4 ways for calculating EBIT have been added to the template which helps you to easily calculate EBIT.

#### Calculating CE(Capital Employed)

We require the elements Balance Sheet of a company to calculate Capital Employed. You can calculate CE in 4 ways which are as follows:

- You can derive CE by subtracting Current Liabilities from Total Assets of the company.

**Thus the formula is:**

CE = Total Assets- Current Liabilities. - You can also find the Capital Employed by adding Fixed Assets and Working capital of a company where Working capital is current assets minus current liabilities.

**Thus the formula is:**

CE = Fixed Assets + Working Capital. - The third way to derive CE is by Adding Share Capital, Equity Reserves, Long and Short Term Borrowings of a company.

**Thus formula is:**

CE = Share Capital + Equity Reserves + Long Term Borrowings + Short Term Borrowings. - The fourth way to calculate CE is the extension of the second method where Current Assets and Current Liabilities are taken into consideration.

**Thus the formula is:**

**or CE = Fixed Assets + Current Asset – Current Liabilities.**
