A current ratio of 2.0 is occasionally cited as acceptable, but a value’s acceptability depends on the industry in which the firm operates & for vodafone it is not quite acceptable cuz it should have high liquidity rate due to everyday high traffic of transactions…

A quick ratio of 1.0 or greater is occasionally recommended, but as with the current ratio, what value is acceptable depends largely on the industry, So For VODAFONE it is not a quite perfect quick ratio neither on 2005 nor on 2006 due to the high traffic transactions of everyday they should have a higher liquidity ratio.

on the average it takes the firm from 30.2 days on 2005 & 23.5 days on 2006, it's better on 23.5 days on 2006 cuz the less the collection period is the better for the company, it is better to collect money back as quicker as posible to use it in other investments
