It gives you overview of how many items/hours you must sell in order to meet your operating budget.

Enter the following figures:
Demand for profit per year/your salary:
Your fixed cost per year:
Salary to employees per year:
Sales price per sold unit:
Purchase/transaction price per sold unit:

With the entered figures your operating budget will look like this:

Operating budget for one year in your company
Turnover/sales: $
- Used goods/transaction costs $
= Gross profit: $
- Salary to employees $
- Fixed costs $
= Profit/revenue (your salary) $

Necessary sales to meet the budget:
Sales per year:  Units
Sales per month:  Units (11 months)
Sales per week:  Units (47 weeks)
Sales per days:  Units (300 days)

You now have to asses:
