What’s your breakeven point? This metric can be useful when budgeting, investing in new equipment, launching a new product or analyzing the effects of a cost reduction plan. It’s easy to calculate using information from the income statement: breakeven = fixed expenses / [1 – (variable expenses / sales)]. Fixed expenses remain relatively unchanged with changes in your sales; variable costs ebb and flow based on your sales volume.
