Different Industries have different ratio according to the working capability of them and the type of work performed by them. The manufacturing, retail and service will have different types of work and the ratio will depend on the assets and liability these possess in the financial statements. The organizations follow different methods of accounting due to which the calculated ratios may differ. The IFRS is principle based accounting and GAAP is rule based accounting. These both methods have different ways of accounting treatment.
