Enter the revenue generated in the most recent period ($) and the revenue generated in the previous period ($) into the Comp Sales Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Comp Sales. 

Comp Sales Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Comp Sales. 

CS = CR / PR

  • Where CS is the Comp Sales ($/$)
  • CR is the revenue generated in the most recent period ($)
  • PR is the revenue generated in previous period ($)

How to Calculate Comp Sales?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Comp Sales.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the revenue generated in the most recent period ($0. 
    1. The revenue generated in the most recent period ($) is given as: 5000.
  2. Next, determine the revenue generated in previous period ($). 
    1. The revenue generated in previous period ($) is provided as: 2500.
  3. Finally, calculate the Comp Sales using the equation above: 

CS = CR / PR

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

CS = 5000 / 2500 = 2.00 ($/$)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

revenue generated in the most recent period ($) = 1202

revenue generated in previous period ($) = 504
