M is for Margin

Margin is the sweet spot between cost and selling price. It’s where your profitability magic happens.

Net profit is the golden egg. It’s what’s left after all expenses have been subtracted from revenue. It’s the reward for your hard work and smart financial decisions.

O is for Overhead

Overhead costs are the expenses that keep your business running but aren’t directly tied to producing goods or services. Think of them as the backstage crew ensuring the show goes on.

P is for Payroll

Payroll is the heartbeat of your business. It’s the process of paying your employees for their dedication and effort.

Q is for Quick Ratio

The quick ratio is like a health check for your business’s short-term financial stability. It measures your ability to cover immediate liabilities without selling inventory.

ROI is the report card for your investments. It tells you if your financial decisions are paying off or if you need to adjust your strategy.

The trial balance is like a puzzle. It ensures that your debits and credits match, a crucial step in accurate financial reporting.

U is for Unearned Revenue

Unearned revenue is the cash you’ve received for services or products you haven’t delivered yet. It’s like having a sneak peek at future income.

V is for Variable Costs

Variable costs are like chameleons. They change based on your level of production. Keeping them in check is key to cost management.
