Enter the overall business revenue (\$) and the total fixed and variable business costs (\$) into the Business Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Business Margin.

The following formula is used to calculate the Business Margin.

BM = (BR-BC) / BR * 100

• Where BM is the Business Margin (%)
• BR is the overall business revenue (\$)
• BC is the total fixed and variable business costs (\$)

## How to Calculate Business Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Business Margin.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the overall business revenue (\$).
• The overall business revenue (\$) is given as: 75,000.
2. Next, determine the total fixed and variable business costs (\$).
• The total fixed and variable business costs (\$) is provided as: 50,000.
3. Finally, calculate the Business Margin using the equation above:

BM = (BR-BC) / BR * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

BM = (75,000-50,000) / 75,000 * 100 = 33.33 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

overall business revenue (\$) = 60,000

total fixed and variable business costs (\$) = 30,000
