Net income, which is also sometimes referred to as net earnings, is revenue minus expenses, interest and taxes. It is essentially the same as the overall profit of a business or its earnings, and is an indicator of a company’s profitability.
Net income is calculated as sales minus the cost of goods sold, selling, general and admin expenses, operating expenses, depreciation, interest, taxes and any other expenses. It’s a useful number for both managers and investors to be aware of in order to assess and understand how much revenue exceeds the overall expenses of the organisation.
Most - if not all – businesses use net income to calculate their earnings per share. Many business analysts tend to refer to net income as the bottom line since it appears at the bottom of their business bank statements.
In order to calculate net income for businesses, you will have to start with the company’s total revenue, and then minus the business’ expenses and other operating costs in order to calculate the business’ overall earnings before tax. Then, minus the tax from this amount to get the net income.
Net income in essence is an indicator of company profitability and is useful metric for managers and investors to assess exactly how much revenue exceeds the expenses of an organisation.
In many cases, investors, managers and creditors focus on the net income metric as not is it a good indicator of a company’s financial position but also demonstrates their ability to manage their assets efficiently.
Net income is also the perfect calculation to determine a company’s bottom line, make estimations and also make projections for the future.
