In accounting and finance, the gross margin is calculated as revenue less cost of goods sold.

The gross margin provides a bookkeeper with a method to track the direct profit associated with the actual exchange of goods and services for income.

The cost of goods sold includes only the direct labor and the material costs of the goods sold. It does not include indirect costs, overhead cost, and sales-related expenses.

The review and analysis of gross margin is crucial.

If the accounts are not properly managed, a company can keep all prices and costs set, increase sales, but have a decrease in income due to a change in the percentage of sales of products with varying levels of gross margin.
