Net profit is amount left after deducting Expenses from the Revenue collected. The formula for calculating Net Profit is:
Net Profit = Total Revenue – Total Expenses
Consider you run an organic food company. The company earns total revenue of $80,000. You don’t keep all the cash because you have to pay to your employees, buy raw material has utility expenses, etc. Let’s say your whole expenses consist of the amount which is $50,000. Now you will apply the formula as
Net Profit= Total Revenue[$80,000] – Total Expenses [$50,000]
Net Profit = $30,000
A company that has more Expenses than Revenue will have a Negative Profit which is also called Loss!
