Profit marginProfit margin
Operating profit as a percentage of sales (or turnover). To calculate profit margin, multiply operating profit by 100, and divide the result by turnover.Example: Company X made an operating profit of £500m on a turnover of £3,000m. Profit margin was therefore (500 x 100) / 3000= 16.66%Profit margin tells you about the underlying profitability of a company's trading activities, not whether it is actually making money for shareholders. Note that it is calculated before taking account of interest charges or tax.

The gross profit of a company (total turnover of products sold less costs to purchase or manufacture) less all other expenses.

In company accounts, the word 'net' is often dropped, so that you simply have 'Profit before tax' and Profit after tax'.
