Is revenue = exam sales
and COGS = cost of exam delivery (VUE)?
If not, of what consists COGS?
For all who are not familiar with the English accounting
expressions I gathered some explanations from
* Revenue is the value of what is received for goods sold,
services rendered, and other financial sources.
* There is a difference between revenue and sales.
* Most revenue comes from sales, but there could be other
sources of revenue, such as rents earned, interest earned,
and so on.
COGS Cost of Goods Sold
* COGS measures the cost of merchandise sold or cost of raw
materials or parts and supplies used for producing items for
* The COGS includes the purchase price plus any costs associated
with obtaining and storing the goods.
* Gross margin is how much the firm earned by buying and selling
or making and selling merchandise.
* In a service firm, there may be no cost of goods sold.
* In either case, the gross margin doesn't tell you everything-you
must subtract expenses.
* Operating expenses include rent, salaries, supplies,
utilities, insurance, and depreciation of equipment.
* After all expenses are deducted, the firm' net income before
taxes is determined.
* After allocating for taxes, you get to the bottom line, the
net income (or net loss) the firm incurred from operations.
* What the business owes to others.
* Current liabilities are payments due in one year or less.
* Long-term liabilities are payments not due for one year or longer.
* Accounts payable are monies owed for merchandise and services
purchased on credit but not paid for yet.
* Notes payable, are short-term or long-term promises for
* Bonds payable are money loaned to the firm that it must pay back.
