Tell me more about this metric
Gross Profit indicates how well a company uses its labour and supplies to produce goods and services. This measure only considers variable costs, such as direct labor or commission, as opposed to fixed costs, such as rent or insurance.
Gross Profit is always expressed as a monetary value. It’s equally important to look at Gross Profit as a percentage of Revenue (Gross Margin or Gross Margin Percentage).
