Calculate the Break Even Point for Your Business
Whether you’re a new small business owner or you’re looking to add a new product or service to your line of offerings, you’ll want to know your break-even point.The calculator below will analyze the fixed costs, variable costs and estimated number of sales to help you set your price per unit and determine how many units you would need to sale to break even.
What is a Fixed Cost?A fixed cost remains constant, regardless of the production fluctuations your business may experience. Throughout the course of running your business, these costs should remain (relatively) stable, and they do not change based on sales volume. Fixed costs are typically recurring expenses. Examples of fixed costs include rent or mortgage payments, employee salaries, utilities, and insurance.
What is a Variable Cost?Unlike fixed costs, there is a direct correlation between these costs and business production. This means when your production is higher, your variable costs will increase and vice versa. Examples of variable costs include materials, packaging, sales commissions (if applicable), and distribution costs.
