The Debt Service Coverage Ratio determines the repayment capacity of the borrowing party. The higher this ratio, the better the debt-paying capacity of the borrower. It shows the quantum of surplus cash available with the organization for meeting its debt requirements, such as interest and principal amount. Organizations having higher DSCR can ask for better terms of the loan, such as lower interest rates, less collateral security, and more.
To calculate DSCR, the formula is:
DSCR = Net Operating Income/Debt services
Where, calculation of Net Operating Income & Debt Services is done as:
Net Operating Income = PAT + Interest + Depreciation + Non-cash expenses
& Debt Services = Installment amount (Interest + Principal repayment during the year)
