contribution to sales ratio (C/S ratio)

Definition

Profits are managed using the contribution to sales ratio (C/S ratio). The basic formula for the C/S ratio is: (sales revenue - cost of sales) / sales revenue x 100. The fixed costs of a business determine the profits, not necessarily sales revenue.
