What can you calculate Markup using the Markup Calculator?
First of all, you have to know that markup calculator is called as mark up calculator in simple words, using this we can extract the value of many types of items like calculate the cost, your revenue and markup, gross profit, total revenue, markup markup price
What is markup and what is its definition?
In simple words, markup is the difference between the selling price and the cost of an item or service.
By the way, there is no exact definition of it, all the experts define it according to their own opinion, but according to us, its definition is this.
Definition: Mark up refers to the value that a player adds to the cost price of a product. The value added is called the mark-up. The mark-up added to cost is often expressed as a percentage of cost. Markup is added to the total cost by the producer of a good or service to cover all the costs of doing business and making a profit.
Markup Formula Calculation
Gross profit (P) is the difference between the cost of making the product (C) and the selling price or revenue (R).
p = r - c
To calculate revenue (R) based on cost (C) and desired gross margin (G), where (G) is in decimal form:
r = c / (1 - g)
Gross profit $ dollars (P) is revenue $ dollars (R) minus gross margin (G) percentage at the time of sale, where (G) is in decimal form:
p = r * g
The markup percentage (M) is gross profit (P) divided by cost (C), in decimal form.
m = p/ c
m * 100 will convert the decimal to a percentage
What is the correct Markup Formula?
In this image, we have shown the correct formula to calculate markup
Apart from this, there are many other formulas to calculate markup, we are giving you all in order which fits according to your item, you can use it to calculate markup.
Markup = Revenue / Cost
markup = 100 × profit / cost
profit = revenue - cost
markup = 100 × (revenue - cost) / cost
revenue = cost + cost * markup / 100
Markup % = (selling price – cost) / cost x 100
Markup percentage = [(price - cost) / cost] × 100
Markup Percentage = Markup Price / Average Unit Cost
How is markup calculated?
Five Steps to calculating percentage markup
- Identify how much the item cost the retailer ($5).>
- Identify how the retailer plans to price the item to be sold ($50).
- Subtract cost from price: $50 - $5 = $45.
- Divide the answer by the cost: $45 / $5 = $8.
- Multiply the resulting number by 100 to get the answer in percentage terms: 8 x 100 = 800%.
Markup Calculate Examples
To calculate the markup, let us understand with a small example Let's say your cost is $125. Gross Margin is 50%.
- Your Markup: 100.00%
- Your Revenue/Price: $250.00
- Your Gross Profit: $125.00
Let us give another example according to Cost Price from cost of goods sold (COGS)
if a business purchased a product for $100 and wants to cost of goods sold (COGS) it for $150, the markup percentage would be:
($150 - $100) / $100 x 100 = 50%
This means that the business is marking up the product by 50% in order to make a profit.
Another way to calculate markup is by using the cost of goods sold (COGS) S price formula, which is:
Selling Price = Cost + (Cost x Markup Percentage)
if a business wants to mark up a product by 50%, the cost of goods sold (COGS) S price would be:
Selling Price = $100 + ($100 x 50%) = $150
It's important to note that markup and profit are not the same thing. Markup is the difference between the cost and selling price, while profit is the amount of money a business earns after all expenses are taken into account.
What is the difference between mark-up and margin
Markup and margin refer to different aspects of pricing and business profit. Markup is the amount that is added to the cost of an item to determine the selling price. Margin is the difference between the selling price of an item and its cost, which will determine the profit of the business.
For example, if a business buys an item for $10 and adds a 30% markup, the item's selling price would be $13. The margin for this item is $3, which is the difference between the cost ($10) and the selling price ($13). Margin is the profit of the business on the commodity.
What are gross profit margins, net profit margin, operating profit margins?
Gross, Net, Operating Profit Margin
understand the profitability ratio in detail In profitability ratio, we will see gross profit margin, operating profit margin, and pretax margin as well as net profit margin. What are they and how are they calculated?
then we will see what they actually mean when you invest in the stock of any company So you compare it with other companies also and when you compare the profitability ratio of all companies then you would know the complete story of a company So Read this Concept from the beginning to the end so that you can understand the concept completely
Let's go straight to the blackboard So when we talk about profitability, then we talk about two types of returns
One of them is the return on sales which means, how much profit percentage is earned on the sold goods the second one is the return on investment investment means the amount of capital applied whether by taking loans, by an investor, or by using your own money
how many returns did you get on it in total?
There are mainly 4 matrices in return on sales
First is Gross Profit Margin,
second is Operating Profit Margin
The third is Pretax Margin,
and the fourth one is Net Profit Margin
Return on Investment, there are Return on Assets(ROA), Operating Return on Asset, Return on Total Capital including debt and equity then you can find out the return on equity separately and there is a return on common equity also which is mainly used for finding outstanding shares of listed companies now we will look into all these terminologies slowly we will concentrate mainly on the return of sales
we will look at Gross Profit Margin, Operating Profit Margin, Pretax Margin, and Net Profit in detail and will see in what ways we compare different companies general income statement to know in which way will you get all these heads
Let's take an example of a shoe manufacturing company and have a look at its income statement, it is a hypothetical example
assuming the The revenue of this company in two years is, let's say 2,00,00,000 its Cost of goods sold, the cost of making the shoes which includes material and labor cost was 80,00,000 for one year So when you subtract the Cost of Goods Sold from the Sales revenue, here revenue we are talking about is sales
so when you minus COGS, then you get the Gross Profit So 1,20,00,000 would be your Gross Profit From this, Let's say you subtracted 20,00,000 of marketing and sales expenditure Office & admin expenses, let's say around 10,00,000 were also subtracted from it
So your EBITDA shows up, which is Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization So after subtracting these 30 lakhs, you get 90 lakhs Now what exactly is EBITDA, what is EBIT, what is operating profit,
After that, when you subtract Depreciation and Amortization from EBITDA Assume a loan was taken to put some planted machinery in this factory So we take Depreciation of such assets So let's say you subtract 10 lakh from it And let's say that the Amortization is zero So we get EBIT from it, after subtracting Depreciation and Amortization from it Now your EBIT will be 80 lakhs So for practical purposes, this would be our Operating Profit.
I have made a detailed video on Operating Profit also where I talked about EBITDA, EBIT, and Operating Profit
So for practical purposes, I am assuming EBIT as Operating Profit because it contains only sales revenue, there is no other income If other income is there , then you have to subtract it Other income like income from some interest in any investments If there is any rental income, then it won't be included in any sales
So that has to be subtracted, but since this, all is our sales revenue EBIT would be our Operating Profit
Now from EBIT, you subtract the interest, whenever interest portion is subtracted in any loan, then you get profit before taxes After that, you subtract the tax I am assuming approximately 30% tax which will be subtracted Then you will get net profit So now let's see how to calculate all the margins
The first one you have is Gross Profit Margin The formula for Gross Profit Margin includes simply dividing Gross Profit by Net Sales we want to see how much percent age of sales is our Gross Profit? Right? So you will divide the Gross Profit by the revenue, that is net sales, which is 2,00,00,000 So if you want to find Gross Profit in this case 1 crore 20 lakhs, which can be written as 120 lakhs, divided by 200 lakhs
So this becomes 0.6 that means 60% is our Gross Profit Margin Then for Operating Profit Margin, you divide Operating profit by Net sales So in our case, Operating Profit is our EBIT SO this becomes 80 lakhs divided by 200 lakhs
This will come to 0.4, which means 40% is your Operating Profit Margin. Now if you want to find out Pretax Margin then you have to divide Profit Before Taxes (PBT) which is 60 lakhs By the Net Sales
So we will divide PBT 60 lakhs by 200 lakhs which comes to 0.3 that means you have a 30% Pretax Margin
For Net Profit Margin, we will divide Net Profit by Net Sales So it will become 42 lakhs divided by 200 lakhs which basically becomes 0.21, which means 21% is your Net Profit Margin So this was all the calculation, now we will understand why do we have to do these calculations
If you talk about Gross Profit Margin so when you will compare companies, then you would want to have its Gross Profit Margin as high as possible, its obvious every company would want that So how to get High Gross Profit Margins?
Now, if pricing is high of any product then naturally that company can command its premium right? Its profits can be increased because of its pricing, that is Gross Profit Margin Or the product's cost should be very low
now, why would the pricing be higher? Because that company may have a competitive advantage, it may have a superior product now if we talk about iPhone, it is a superior product, right? So it also has a superior branding, which also gives it a competitive advantage Its technology can also be exclusive Because of this, any product can command higher pricing The other one is lower costs now how can the cost be lowered of any product?
Economies of scale, meaning putting a very larger scale of factories or the operational efficiencies were improved greatly So it lowers our cost, because of this Gross Profit Margin improves, so whenever you compare companies then you will see things like whose Gross Profit Margin is better And if Gross Profit Margin is good, then is it sustainable? meaning that if your initial Gross Profit Margin is good but you don't have exclusivity, you don't have an advantage in technology, neither in branding nor in product then it won't be sustainable
So you would have to focus on these things while observing any company after that, we come on operating profit margin what does operating profit margin tell us? and how is it different from gross profit margin? we calculated gross profit margin this much earlier by the gross profit after that, we see the expenses of marketing and sales, office and admin, and the costs of depreciation and amortization are all here
For example, let's assume the operating profit margin of any company is increasing and your gross profit margin is the same
so this means the company can control its operating cost nicely and if the growth of operating profit margin becomes lower than the gross profit margin that means the company is not able to control these operating costs as marketing and sales, it may be this office and admin expenses are increasing Depreciation may have been considered too much this too can lower our operating profit margin
so operating profit margin can be understood mainly by operating cost additionally when we compare it to gross profit margin now we will talk about Pretax Margin t margin here this interest is different, interest is also subtracted from operating profit
now assume here it was 40 lakhs interest instead of 20 lakhs So our profit before tax would have been 40 lakhs only so when we calculated the pretax margin earlier which was 30% , would now have remained 20% only so let's assume your company is paying a very high interest
So naturally, your pretax margin becomes lower now when you compare two companies, then you can see that assuming a company's operational efficiencies are very good, gross profit margins are very high and assume slowly its interest portion is becoming shorter that means its situation is improving, its pretax margins would be improving
So pretax margins basically show us the effects of debts that if you have taken a loan then what effects would be there on the margins by filling the interest portions
then in net profit, all your expenses are subtracted, whether it be operating expenses, or not operating expenses so it gives you t he overall picture of a companies profitability net profit margin is quite common, whenever we talk of simple profit margin we talk about net profit margin only
net profit margin is compared foremost by anyone who's an analyst or anyone who wants to invest in stocks but net profit margin doesn't tell you the whole story, that is why you need the gross profit margin operating profit margin, pretax margin, and net profit margin to be calculated when you compare one company to another
now we will talk about comparison on companies
that if you want to compare on the profitability of companies, then how will you compare assuming you want to compare four companies then you may try to compare Asian paints with Infosys, Reliance, Tata Motors, and their gross profit margins, operating profit margin or net profit margin by each other but this is an absolutely wrong way you should compare companies of the same sector now Asian Paints is a paint company, so you will compare it with a paint company only you will not compare it with a tech company like Infosys, Asian Paints will be compared with Akzo Nobel, Berger Paints, Nerolac
If you have to compare Infosys, then you will do it with TCS, Wipro, Cognizant a similar type of companies have to be compared and we have to see whose margins are becoming better over a period of time.
Markup vs Profit Margin - Explained
I am going to discuss a very simple topic Markup Vs Marin We will see what is the difference between markup and profit margin
Markup is a similar term of profit margin Many people get confused about markup and profit margin
we'll see what is their difference? If I give you an example If the markup of any product is 50%. Assume you are selling a product or you buy a product So if the markup is 50% then the profit becomes 33%
So we will clear this confusion And we will see how the calculation is done?
Let's understand this with the help of an example
There is a shoe manufacturing company and The cost of making a shoe is 400 Rs And it sets the price of a pair of shoes is 600 Rs So first we will calculate the profit per unit. So here we are talking about profit per unit. We are talking about gross profit We are not talking about net profit
What is the gross profit?
It's price- cost
What is the price?
600 - 400(cost)
So what is the profit per unit
It is 200 Rs
So if we have to calculate the profit margin
Then what is the profit margin?
So we are talking about gross profit We are talking about gross profit margin So what will we do here?
What is the gross profit?
It was 200 Rs. What is the price? 600 Rs We will divide 200 from 600. What is the answer? It is 0.3333 If I write it in percentage then it is 33.33%
What is its meaning? 33.33% of the price is your cost.
When you will calculate 33.33% of 600 Then you will get 200 Rs
So if we say it in other words then what will happen is When you subtract profit margin from price then When you subtract (1-% of profit margin) Then what will you get? We will get the cost.
So in this way, if you want to learn this formula then you can do it. Otherwise, as I have told you intuitively
If you will do it by understanding first then you can do it easily. You will not face any major problems. I will also tell you about its application that how is its application? So this was about how to calculate the profit margin Remember this, the profit margin is profit as a percentage of the price.
Similarly, the markup is the percentage of the cost. So if we have to calculate markup
in this example
Then if our profit is 200 Rs Then we will divide profit by cost. What is the cost? It is 400 Rs. So when you will divide 200 by 400 then you'll get 0.5 That means your markup is 50% So understand this intuitively what it means is
At your cost, How much markup percentage should you add That you will get your final price. This is the markup percentage. If we do the opposite of it How much profit margin is to be deducted from the price to get your cost?
Please remember this thing. If you understand this thing then you will not get confused. So I will tell you about the markup. If you want to calculate the price from the markup then what will you do? Then you will do cost×(1+markup%) How much markup percentage you should add to get the price So if you want then you can remember it. But you will not need it. What you have to is you have to remember this diagram We add markup percentage to the cost And deduct the profit margin percentage from the price.
Then we get the cost. I will give you one more example.
Assume if we know the markup percentage and profit margin percentage And we want to calculate the price then what will we do? Assume the shoe manufacturing company sold the shoes to a shoe retailer The price was 600 Rs So the cost of the shoe retailer is 600 Rs Because he has bought from a shoe manufacturing company at 600 Rs Now we want that the shoe retailer to know the price. Assume he wants to earn some profit margin He wants to know his price. Let's say he says that
He wants to earn a profit margin of 40% So tell me what price I should set? See what we calculated?
Price×(1-% of profit margin)
is equal to cost. This means if you deduct profit margin from the price Then you will get the cost That means your price would be
Cost/1-% of profit margin
So how much is it? Cost is 600 Rs divided by 1-0.4 The percentage of profit margin is 40%
So divide it by 0.4 Then how much will it be? 600/0.6
What would be your price? It should be 1000 Rs
So that your profit margin percentage will be 40% Similarly, I will give you an example of markup Assume your cost was 400 Rs And let's say you want to earn 50% markup on it What price should you keep? What formula did we see in this price is equal to we increase the cost by markup percentage So we will increase it by markup percentage. So what is our cost? 400 Rs. So you will do 400(1+ 0.5) So it will be 400×1.5 So it will be 600 Rs Similarly, you can decide your pricing for any product You have a target, one is markup percentage Or there is a target of profit margin
