What Is Profit?

Accountants In Dunfermline

OnTax Accountants In Dunfermline , are going back to basics today to discuss profit. You may have wondered: What exactly is profit? How is profit calculated? When does profit happen? The answer to these questions and more is discussed in the video blog below as well as briefly in this article.

Many years ago a client asked us here at OnTax Accountants in Dunfermline a question that absolutely floored me! There I was discussing the clients profit and loss report with them when they turned to me and said “see profit…”, “yes… i said..”, “is that what i take out the bank and go and spend?” they asked. Well, knock me down with a feather, in fact we just about had to order an ambulance to come to OnTax Dunfermline Accountants to resusitate me! Here is someone with a turnover approaching £300,000 wondering if it was compulsory to take the profit out the bank every month and go and spend it, no doubt in the fashion shops!

This event, which really did happen here at OnTax Accountants in Dunfermline, highlights the many misunderstandings clients have about profit. So, over to the video blog now for a quick explanation of what profit really is.
