    What is meant by turnover

    The word "Turnover" has many meanings.

    For a trader/manufacturer/service provider it means total sales (cash+credit).

    While when a bank gives loan to any person or company they see the turnover.

    Here the turnover generally refers to the total credits in any given period in account holder's account.

    While bank's own turnover is the total loans disbursed + outstanding recovery of earlier period - bad debts (loans written off) in this period.

    Considering the disclosure norms in Accounting Standards the announcement of turnover is required. I am not sure for which industries it is mandatory and for which industries it is not. But it is nevertheless announced.

    Balance sheet of any company can be easily window dressed. So to understand whether whatever profits that are shown are really from turnover or not the announcement of turnover becomes necessary.

    In case if a person/investor finds out that the turnover of any company is not high but the company is saying that they have made big profits then he can probe in details as to how the company is making its money.

    In case if the investor finds out that the company is selling the goods to a huge quantity but not making much profits then he can investigate the books of accounts to find out what are the causes of low profitability.
