Financial KPI

Financial Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are financial metrics that measure factors such as revenue or expenses at a broad, high-level. These KPIs are a means of presenting complex information as key data points to track progress and measure current status against company goals. Each business will have to determine which financial KPIs are important for its business to track and share on a regular basis.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Financial KPI

Once small businesses determine which financial KPIs are important to their success, they should develop ways to track the progress of those KPIs. This can help businesses identify signs of financial trouble or areas of success, or serve as an early warning system about concerning trends.
