Fixed Asset Turnover (FAT) is an efficiency ratio that indicates how well or efficiently the business uses fixed assets to generate sales. This ratio divides net sales into net fixed assets over an annual period. The net fixed assets include the amount of property, plant, and equipment less the accumulated depreciation. Generally, a higher fixed asset ratio implies the effective utilization of investments in fixed assets to generate revenue. This ratio would be analyzed alongside leverage and profitability ratios.

The formula for calculating the fixed asset turnover ratio is:

Fixed Asset Turnover = Net Sales / Average Fixed Assets
