# Advice 1: How to calculate the ROI: the formula

Economic efficiency – the ratio of the total useful outcomes to the amount of resources spent to achieve this result. Expressed in absolute monetary terms, or in relative units.
Instruction
1
The formula of ROI:

R = (P / E)*100%, where

P – useful end results in monetary terms.

E – the cost of achieving this result in terms of money.
It should be noted here that. In relation to the business or activities of private entrepreneurs , profitability is calculated for a certain period of time – usually a month, quarter or year. In this case, the final outcomes and costs over a selected time interval exactly match the balance sheet figures for the corresponding period (income and consumption respectively). The same is true regarding groups of companies and even industries – however, there will often have to resort to statistical estimates and errors.

Take for example a small Agency that sells tickets for concerts and performances. It is necessary to calculate its quarterly profitability.
The Agency acts as an intermediary and has no need to print your tickets. Work: Director, accountant, 12 staff and 70 freelance distributors of tickets, and 4 drivers with own transport. From time to time, the Agency enlists the aid of a legal Agency.

The Agency has a sales office.

Let the total Agency expenses for the quarter are:

Payroll 1.35 million RUB;

Charges, taxes, payment of 1.2 million rubles

Rent, bills and entertainment expenses – of 1.74 million rubles.

Total: 1,35 + 1,2 + 1,74 = 4.29 million RUB
Even for a quarter of the tickets sold for 34 concerts with a total sum of 154 million rubles., of which the intermediary Agency has a percentage of 12%.

For the quarter was also received income securities 0,54 mln. RUB.

Other income in cash, the company came to 1.4 million.

Total: (154*12% = 18,48) + 0,54 + 1,4 = 20,42 million.

So, first we will understand what profit and profitability. Profit is the monetary expression of the final financial result of enterprises and the profitability is a relative measure that reflects the same financial result.
One of the main theories explaining the emergence of profit is the theory of surplus value developed by K. Marx. Marx says that surplus value is transformed into net profit after a sales record is created at the stage of production of the specific commodity "labor force". Surplus value is the value that is created by hired labor above the cost of his labor (i.e. salaries) and appropriated by the capitalist.
However, the profit is not equal to surplus value, because part of it goes to pay salaries to workers and to cover other costs: interest on the loan, taxes, rents. So the profit is called the transformed form of surplus value.
2
Distinguish between gross (total) and net profit (the amount remaining after the payment of costs and payment of required taxes and deductions).
Gross profit is calculated as follows:

Gross profit = Net revenue from sales of goods and services — Cost of goods sold or services
Net profit (RAS) is calculated as follows:

Net profit = gross profit — the Sum of production costs — Sum of taxes, fines and penalties, interest on loans.
3
Profitability is a relative measure of economic efficiency (%). A ratio of profitability calculated as the ratio of profits to assets (resources), its formative.
There are many indicators of profitability: return on fixed assets, return on assets, return on equity, return on sales, profitability, etc. let us Consider the last two indicators.
The return on sales shows a share of the profits earned in each currency and calculated:

Profit margin = Net profit / sales
Profitability of production shows, how many monetary units of net profit the company receives from each monetary unit spent on production and sales. Calculated:

Profitability = Profit from sales / Amount of expenses on manufacture and production realisation.

Define the measure of profitability (efficiency) of production activities. Otherwise this figure is called balance profitability:Profitability = balance sheet total net profit / (Average value of current assets + average fixed assets) * 100%.According to this formula, the rate will be slightly overestimated as in the balance sheet reflects the profit from all activities of the organization and not just from the manufacturing process. So are considered indicators of profitability of total assets and an indicator of profitability of own capital.
2
Calculate an indicator of profitability of total assets. This parameter shows the efficiency of use of personal property of the organization and is calculated according to a formula:Return = (Balance sheet profit / balance sheet assets Amount)*100%.
3
Calculate an indicator of profitability of own capital. This parameter is an indicator of the efficiency of use of invested in the organization of capital and is calculated by a special formula:Profitability = (Net profit / equity capital) * 100%.This indicator, as a rule, interests of shareholders and investors.

3
Most often in the analysis of activity of the enterprise used indicator of profitability of production. It is defined as the ratio of the profit of the organization, remaining at its disposal, and total cost of goods sold. Profitability of products shows how many cents of profit the company will receive for each ruble of investment costs. This indicator can be calculated as for the organization as a whole and in its units, as well as individual products. This coefficient depends on changes in the structure of sales, its cost and the level of sales prices.

# Advice 7 : How to calculate rate of return

The norm of profitabilityor internal rate of return is the rate of return generated by the investment. This is the discount rate at which net present value of the investment equal to zero or if the net investment income equals the investment cost of the project.
Instruction
1
To determine the rate of profitability of investments, it is necessary to solve the following equation:?(СFm/(1+IRR^m) = I, where:- СFm – input cash flow in period m; IRR – internal rate of return (the rate of profitability of investment);- I – the value of the investment.
2
The meaning of this indicator is that it shows the maximum allowed relative level of expenditure that can be spent on this project. For example, if the project is fully financed by a Bank loan, the IRR value shows the upper limit interest rate on it. If the value of the interest rate will be higher values were found, the project will be considered unprofitable.
3
Knowing the magnitude of the norms of profitability, you can make a decision on the admissibility of the investment project. If IRR is higher than or equal to the cost of capital, the project is accepted, if less than cost of capital project rejected. Thus, the norm of profitability is "borderline" indicator": if the value of the investment is higher internal rate of return, the result of the project, it is impossible to provide a refund and their impact, and thus the project should be rejected.
4
The main advantage of this indicator lies in the fact that in addition to determining the level of profitability of investments it allows to compare projects of different scale and different durations. After all, the norm of profitability is calculated in percentage, and relative values are easier to interpret. In addition, this indicator provides an opportunity to determine the safety threshold for the project.
5
However, note that this indicator has some disadvantages. First, this is an unrealistic assumption about the rate of reinvestment, since it involves the reinvestment of earnings at the rate of IRR, which in practice is rarely feasible. Second, it is possible to obtain multiple values of IRR in the case where there is an interchange of cash inflows and outflows. In addition, this indicator is very sensitive to the structure of the stream of payments and does not always evaluate mutually exclusive projects.

# Advice 8 : How to calculate overall profitability

• - the balance sheet of the company for the analyzed period(form No. 1 of financial statements);
• - report on profit and loss for the same period(form №2 of financial statements).
Instruction
1
Determine the gross profit of the company for the analyzed period. The value of the amount of gross profit you take from the form №2 "Report about profits and losses"(line 29) financial statements.
2
Determine the average value of fixed assets as follows. In the balance sheet take values in line 120 "fixed assets" at the beginning and at the end of the period. Add up these two numbers. Divide the sum by 2.
3
Calculate the average value of current assets. They include inventories, work in progress and deferred expenses. Fold the data at the beginning and at the end of the period on the line 210 "Reserves" of the balance sheet. Divide the sum by 2.
4
Use the formula to calculate the total profitability robs=Pval/(Posn+Pobor)X100%, where:
- Pval - gross profit for the analyzed period,thousand RUB.;
- Fon - the average value of fixed assets in the analyzed period,thousand RUB.;
- Faber - average cost of current assets for the analyzed period,thousand RUB
5
Calculate the total return in the above equation, dividing the amount of gross profit to the amount of the average cost of fixed and current assets. Multiplying the resulting ratio by 100 to get the value of total profitability of the enterprises in per cent.
Note
Overall profitability characterizes the amount of profit that falls on each ruble spent fixed and current assets. The higher the ratio, the more effective use of production funds of an enterprise.
