How do you use gross profit margin to make business decisions?

Cost of Good/Service Definition

The cost of good or service is the total amount that you will be charging the customer for this particular good or service. Be sure to include the total amount that they will be charged, even if this amount includes extra fees, which are related to the good or service and do not have to be paid to someone else. As an example, you would not include the amount for tax in the total cost, since that amount must be sent to your tax department.

New Sales a Month Definition

When thinking of new sales per month, you must think of all possible sales that will be generated for this particular good or service. Of course, this will be an estimate. Unless you are a brand new business, or this is a brand new product or service, you can probably use an estimate from a previous month. A better estimate might be to average the last several months to get an average of how many of this good or service you can expect to sell each month.

If you are a new business, or you are selling a new product, you will need to just make the best estimate you can. Remember, that this type of estimate may not be accurate. And, you will need to keep this in consideration when you see the calculation that is generated.
