A company’s ﬁnancial performance is essential when investors compare its competitive position to determine how attractive it is. That is why performance needs to be evaluated from both the qualitative and quantitative points of view. The classical ﬁnancial approach to measuring a company’s performance based on past results is no longer sufﬁcient; it needs to be complemented with a non-ﬁnancial measurement method. This paper focuses on ﬁnancial analysis, which is one of the tools used for assessing the performance and ﬁnancial status of companies. The current individual ﬁnancial analysis indicators must be processed taking into account the inﬂuences that potentially affect and distort the results, as well as with their comparability over time and within a single accounting unit or among individual companies. As far as ﬁnancial analysis is concerned, attention has to be paid to the method used for evaluating assets and liabilities, as this issue greatly affects the informative utility of ﬁnancial statements and the ﬁnal data relevant to income from operations, which are the input data for processing individual ﬁnancial indicators. After that the paper deals with the research that was focused on companies located in the Czech Republic. The aim of the research was to analyse the methods of measurement of ﬁnancial performance use the Czech companies. Another important task is to plot the approach used by companies to conduct ﬁnancial analysis in the Czech Republic. It should illustrate whether companies process such analysis independently and regularly using their in-house information systems and identify the most commonly- assessed indicators. It is important that companies process their ﬁnancial statements so that they can subsequently be assessed and compared over time while maintaining adherence to the same accounting procedures.
