Gross Profit

Gross profit is the difference between the revenue received for the product less the cost of goods sold.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses are the amount an entity expends to maintain and operate the general business. Operating expenses include research and development, marketing, general and administrative, amortization of intangible assets (i.e. patents, good will, etc.), etc.

In addition, when an entity purchases a capital asset, such as a building or equipment, they expense a portion of the asset over a number of years; this is called depreciation. Depreciation expense is an accounting expense that is deducted from net income.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
