Revenue vs Net Profit


Net Profits

What is it?

Revenue is defined as the income generated through a business’ primary operations. It is often referred to as “top line” and is shown at the top of an income statement.

Net Profit is the value that remains after all operating expenses are subtracted from a company’s revenue. Net Profit is one of the best ways to determine a business' profitability and is often referred to as the bottom line. For Net Income, expenses to be deducted include Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), all operating expenses, and tax and interest costs.
