Last week I talked about turnover, this week it’s What are your business profits?

Most people see profit as the difference between money in and money out. When people say money, they mean notes and coins, what’s in their bank account.  That sounds nice, and easy to calculate. However, we are talking about the world of numbers and business here!

Welcome to another weekly episode of I Hate Numbers.  My mission is to inform, inspire and educate you to get closer to your numbers.  This is a must do if you want to make money from your business and are not run it as a hobby.

Profit is not measured in terms of money in and money out.  When you calculate profit it’s a completely different ball game.

What about accounting terms do you need to know?

In this podcast I am going to look at four jargon words.  Don’t worry, I will convert that jargon to normal speech!

  • Turnover
  • Cost of sales
  • Expenses
  • Incurred
