Jennifer Croft Comments
Would-be entrepreneurs often confuse gross profit and net profit, as do small business owners with years of experience. Gross profit is the amount of money you make after you subtract cost of goods. For example, if you sell $10,000 worth of products and services this month, and your cost of goods is $2,000, you have $8,000 in gross profit. Net profit is the amount of money you make after you subtract your overhead expenses. For example, if your monthly overhead expenses are $3,000, then your net profit (before taxes) will be $5,000 ($8,000 in gross profit, minus $3,000 in overhead).
