The purpose of the article is to substantiate the theoretical positions and develop practical recommendations for the development of tools for analytical assessment of the competitiveness of an enterprise, taking into account the influence of the corruption component. It has been established that the main inalienable structural components of the analytical assessment of the competitiveness of enterprises on the market are: 1) the efficiency of the enterprise (in four components: financial and economic efficiency, commercial efficiency, production-technological efficiency, social efficiency); 2) the competitiveness of the enterprise’s products (includes calculation of such indicators as an integral indicator of product quality (useful effect), price of products, integral indicator of service quality and other additional (consumer) product parameters).
