What is Revenue?Revenue is the income generated through a business' primary operations, such as the sale of products or services, or proceeds from rent or interest, less any discounts or returns. Unlike related metrics, such as Net Revenue, Gross Margin, or Profit, Revenue has no costs or expenses deducted from it. As such, it's often referred to as "top line" and is shown at the top of an income statement (profit and loss statement).
Alternate names: Income, Gross Sales
