What is the difference between bottom-line and top-line growth, by small business accountants in Melbourne

Our small business accountants in Melbourne, will explain the key differences between bottom-line and top-line growth in businesses.

A company’s bottom line is its net income, or the bottom figure on an income statement. More specifically, a company’s bottom line is their income after all expenses have been deducted from their revenues. A company’s bottom line can also be referred to as net earnings or net profits.

On the other hand, the top line refers to a business’ gross sales or revenues. Any reference to a company’s top line growth is in regards to an increase in gross sales or revenue.

Both these figures are useful in determining the financial strength of a business. If your small business needs help determining this, our small business accounting services in Melbourne are just one call away.
