Formula Sheet
Total costs = fixed costs + variable costs
Total revenue = price x quantity
Profit = total revenue ­ total costs
Variable Costs per unit = Varible costs/ output
Fixed Costs per unit = Fixed costs/output
Contribution per unit = selling price ­ variable costs per unit
Total contribution = total revenue ­ total variable costs
Breakeven Point = Fixed Costs/contribution per unit
Break-even output = Fixed costs / contribution per unit
Net cash flow = cash inflow ­ cash outflow
Closing balance = Opening balance + net cash flow
Variance = actual figure ­ budgeted figure
Gross profit margin = (Gross profit / sales revenue) * 100
Net profit margin = (Net profit / sales revenue) * 100
Return on capital (employed) = (Net profit / capital employed) * 100
Labour productivity = output per period / number of employees per period
Labour turnover = (number of employees leaving a business / average number employed period) * 100
Price elasticity of demand = % change in price / % change in quantity demanded
Percentage change = (change / original) * 100
Capacity Utilisation = Current output/ Maximum output *100
Market Share = Company Sales/ Total sales in market *100
Market Size = Average selling price of product
Unit costs = Total Costs/ output
Step 1. Figure out the percentage change, for both quantity and price.
(new price- old price)/ old price and (new quantity-old quantity)/ old quantity.
Step 2. You then take these Values and divide them change in (quantity/change in price) * 100
