The first chapter of this study introduces the study and defines the methodology used in completing the study. The purpose of this study is to provide a model whereby financial analysis can be completed which will be relevant to managers of small businesses. A literature survey was done to review ratios currently used in financial analysis and to determine availability of information for purposes of comparison of a business' information with industry averages. Then, a model was built which will provide a simple, yet informative analysis. Finally, the model was applied to a small business to illustrate its use and to determine whether the information provided by the analysis was sufficient to outline areas of exception.
