What it takes to make a profit calculator

Small businesses often have a challenge of getting staff to understand the challenges of profitably operating a business. Too often the staff thinks that you simply double the cost of everything you buy, have some minimal expenses and then put the rest in your pocket. If only it were that easy.

This calculator is provided to help you illustrate to your staff just what it takes to operate a business. Without sharing specific numbers, this calculator asks you to input several numbers from the operating expense part of your income statement and the maintained margin which also comes from your income statement.

After inputting that information, pick an example item from your business and input the selling price. The calculator will then show how much of the sale of that item goes to each of the categories of expense and how much is profit. This calculator provides a great illustration, using your business, to show that it is quite a challenge to profitably operate a small business.
