DEVELOPING A BASIC INCOME STATEMENT
How much of your solution you can sell in the first year
For what price
That's your gross revenue number
Next, you need to figure out how much it costs to:
Make your product or perform your service
Pay for people to do the work
Rent any space you need
Frugally market the solution
The number you generate will be your gross expense number
Subtract the gross revenue number from the gross expense number. That's called EBITDA, or earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization.
Multiply the EBITDA number by sixty percent. The product is the number you can roughly expect the business would generate after taxes. This is called net income.
