To gain a better understanding of a business’ success for a given period, accountants often calculate the cost of goods sold directly on the income statement.

The cost of goods sold includes all materials used, plus the labor used directly, in the creation of a product.

For example, the cost of goods sold of a baker would include the flour, grains, and labor. By comparing cost of goods sold to revenue, a manager is able to gain valuable understanding for break-even and growth analysis.

Revenue less Cost of Goods Sold equals Gross Margin.
