Your gross profit and business decisions

There are so many needed, powerful and insightful business decisions you need to make. You can’t do that unless you know some key financial numbers. Gross profit is one of them.

What sort of decisions, let’s list a few

  • Break even. How much you need to sell to cover costs, meet your financial targets, your safety cushion.
  • How much you should charge your customers? Pricing your products and services. In addition, pricing and gross profit go hand in hand.
  • Outsourcing decisions. Should you or shouldn’t you. Cost versus benefits, the numbers side needs, you guessed it….
  • Controlling and managing costs. Better margins come from increasing your selling price, reducing waste, improving processes, better buying.
  • Cash flows. Stronger gross profits equals stronger cash flows
