# Net income

Net income is the total amount of money that a company or individual has earned during a period of time, minus any taxes or expenses that have been paid during that same period of time. For businesses, net income is often referred to as the "bottom line" because it represents the final profit or loss figure for the company. Net income can be calculated for any period of time, but is most commonly reported on a quarterly or annual basis.

Individuals can also calculate their net income, which is often used as a starting point for calculating taxes owed. Net income for individuals includes all forms of income (such as wages, interest, and dividends) minus any deductions (such as taxes or expenses).

##### How do we find net income?

There are a few steps involved in finding net income:

1. First, you need to calculate your total revenue. This is the total amount of money that your company has brought in during a given period of time.
2. Next, you need to calculate your total expenses. This is the total amount of money that your company has spent during a given period of time.
3. Once you have both your total revenue and total expenses calculated, you can find your net income by subtracting your total expenses from your total revenue.

For example, let's say that your company had a total revenue of \$100,000 in the past month. And let's say that your company's total expenses were \$80,000 in the past month. In this case, your company's net income would be \$100,000 - \$80,000 = \$20,000. Is net income your salary? No, net income is not your salary. Your salary is your gross income before taxes and other deductions are taken out. Net income is your take-home pay after all taxes and deductions have been taken out of your paycheck.

##### What is net income vs gross income?

Net income is defined as gross income minus deductions. In other words, it is the amount of money that you have left after paying taxes and other expenses.

Gross income, on the other hand, is the total amount of money that you earn in a year, before any deductions are made.

### Is net income after tax?

Net income after tax is the total amount of money that a company or individual has earned during a period of time, minus any taxes that were owed. This number can be found on a company's financial statements, and is often used to measure the profitability of a business.

#### What is good net income?

Net income is calculated to be the total revenue of a company minus the total expenses of the company. This number can be positive or negative, and is a good indicator of the financial health of a company. A positive net income means that the company is profitable, while a negative net income means that the company is losing money.
