According to Wu (2010), the internal causes of ﬁrm bankruptcy may be seen in insufﬁcient management skills, marketing and an inability to compete. They are reﬂ ected in company performance. For this reason, accounting data, or rather ﬁnancial ratios, are a frequent source of information for assessing the stability and viability of an enterprise.

In general, hotel location involves selecting a speciﬁc country, region and settlement unit (commune or town), where a hotel enterprise could be located (Damborský & Wokoun, 2010; Godlewska, 2001). The location of tourist enterprises, such as hotels, is fundamental to the size of the tourist demand and thus affects the economic efﬁciency and proﬁtability of the hotel (Lado-Sestayo, Otero-González, & VivelBúa, 2014; Parte-Esteban & Alberca-Oliver, 2015; Puciato, 2016; Puciato & Dziedzic, 2016; Půlpánová & Simová, 2012; Simová, 2011; Simová & Zemanová, 2011; Sohrabi, Vanani, Tahmasebipur, & Fazli, 2012).

One of the most common problems with health care systems around the world is that the cost of running them tends to increase at higher rate than the rate of inﬂation (see Glied & Smith, 2013). This has led among others to the introduction of visit fees by governments and/or public as well as private health care facilities and other health care providers.
The interest in bank liquidity has grown signiﬁcantly in recent times not only among regulators, but in authors’ studies as well. The trigger mechanism was mainly the recent global ﬁnancial crisis, where a number of systems faced liquidity problems. On the basis of the crisis, the regulation on the part of the Basel Committee (Bank for International Settlements, 2010) in the area of liquidity has increased. The Basel Committee proposed the introduction of two liquidity indicators: the LCR (Liquidity Coverage Ratio) and the NSFR (Net Stable Funding Ratio), which the member states must obligatorily fulﬁl based on European law.
