Better than the Current ratio in a more stringet liquidity test, the quick ratio is used as liquidity test "acid-test" since the inventories are excluded from the total current assets used in this ratio. In fact, it is important to evidence that only quick-assets (liquid assets) can be used in the ratio divided by the current liabilities (thos due in one year or less). 

The quick ratio could be also a warning financial indicator to aler the financial community of creditors included authorities since its value express the degree of solvency in a particular moment in time of the company so the quick ratio together with others can immediately support to deeply understand the degree of financial sustainability and its growing potential or need to rethinking by the management earlier than later. 

The quick ratio expresses in percentage terms the ability of the company to satisfy its short term liabilities (current liabilities) without using prepaid expences and resources lying in the stocks (inventories).
