What is a break even analysis calculator?

A break even analysis calculator is a valuable tool for business owners and executives. It tells you one simple thing: When will I get back what I put into this business or project. Your break-even point is the amount of revenue you need to generate in order to cover your fixed and variable costs. You enter your fixed costs, your variable cost per unit and the sale price per unit, and it will calculate the amount of you need to sale (in units and/or dollars) to break even.

Why should I use a break even analysis calculator?

Because “break even,” as a business owner, is usually the first place you’re looking to arrive at. It’s that moment in time where you can sit back a little in your chair, put your feet up (at least for a few seconds) and sigh, “Well, at least we’ve stopped losing money.” A break even analysis calculator will tell you what you need to do to get there. You don’t need much to figure it out, and the arithmetic is pretty simple. But you don’t need to take the time to do it manually. Plug a few numbers into one of these online calculators, and you’ll get a nice-looking chart showing you the path to break even, along with the raw numbers (units and revenue). Try it out. It’s worth it.
