Calculate Proposed Selling Price By Entering Desired Profit Margin Percentage

Jun 23, 2010

Is there an excel formula that can calculate a proposed selling price by entering a desired profit margin percentage and knowing the cost of goods sold?

I know that gross profit is calcualted by subtracting the cost of goods sold from the selling price and that the gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by the selling price..but not coming up with a way to back out a selling price by just knowing the cost of goods sold and entering a desire gross profit margin?

I am looking for a formula which will calculate a sell price with 20% profit after taxes and costs. I need it to factor in a fixed shipping cost (eg Â£10), a 7.5% Amazon fee of the sell price, then 20% tax of the sell price. I currently have a formula which essentially does this but as I'm not good with Excel it requires me to input all the values every time which is not practical considering our large inventory.

I have a cost price in cell a1 I want to calculate the selling price.

If the cost price is less than 0.25 then the selling price is cost multiply x5 if the cost is between 0.26 & 1.00 the selling price is cost multiply x4 if the cost is between 1.01 and £4.99 the selling price is cost x3.5

I have a price sheet for my store in Excel. I want to make the spreadsheet easy for my sales people to use to calculate differing profit levels. I'd like to embed a drop down box at the top (I can do that part) that they can select, say, 10%...20%...30% markup. I know how to do that basic formula. I don't understand how to link that formula to a number selected in a drop down box. I don't know how to make the prices change based on the value selected in the drop down box. I can't do vlookup because it's about 1500 lines long. Also, it doesn't have to be drop down box based--that's just the idea in my head. I tried just making a macro that would run when they hit the button, but when the macro runs it switches the focus back to the top, very annoying if you were looking at prices on cell D811.

I Produce something with a â‚¬2000 cost price. this is variable.

I Sell it for lets say â‚¬ 2500,- to someone this is also a variable.

That's makes a Profit of â‚¬ 500,- on the sale. This is 125% revenue

Until here, no problem using a spreadsheet. but now the difficult part.

I have to split of the 25% margin over 2 persons. This has to be done as follow:

a. The first slice is 2,25 for Mr A b. The second slice is 15,00 for MR B c. The Third Slice is 2,75 for mr A

This divides 20 of the 25 % over 2 persons. Still 5% margin remains

The last 5 is devided as follow: d. 85% for MR A e. 15% for MR B

So in this case: MR A receives: a:â‚¬45 + c:â‚¬55+ d:â‚¬85 = â‚¬185,- MR B receives: b:â‚¬250 + e:â‚¬15 = â‚¬265,-

The tricky part is when the margin is less than 20%. for example; If the margin is 14%. than only slice a. and a part of slice b. an be paid off. so in that case; MR A receives: a:â‚¬45 + c:â‚¬0+ d:â‚¬0 = â‚¬45,- MR B receives: b:â‚¬230 + e:â‚¬0 = â‚¬230,-

Any formula which calculates the revenue for MR A and B automatically based on only the cost and selling price.

A B 1 Cost price - â‚¬2000 2 Selling Price - â‚¬2500 3 MR A - â‚¬185,- 4 MR B -â‚¬265,-

I don't want to appear too expensive or give my products away. If I have a part that costs me Â£20.00 plus vat i.e Â£24.00. I have to include carriage Â£5.00 plus vat i.e Â£6.00. Ebay fees for car parts including PayPal is 10%. How much would I charge to retain 20% percent after all fees and charges and what formula would I use to make the calculator.

I'm using a spread sheet to determine what I should charge customers. I want to make at least $300 profit on every job. If my profit is not at least $300 then I must up my price until profit reaches $300. Currently I'm manually adding a percentage (Factor) to the original price until I reach $300 profit. In the image below:

A is the original price B is the factor by which I multiply the original price to increase it C is the new figure which is reached after multiplying (1+B2)*A2 D is the costs related to that job (I enter these manually on a separate sheet within the workbook) E if the profit (C-D)

I use a factor in B because when I increase the price, then I have to increase several parts of the job by the same percentage so I multiply each part by this factor to increase the price of each by the same percentage.

So I can easily put together a formula that maintains a consistent markup price across varying costs. Is there a formula that will give me a consistent gross margin % as I drag down a series of costs?

So if the cost is 158 a 42% mark up would be 224.36 but the Gross Margin % is only 29.58. I want to be able to hit a 42% mark up across the board.

I have calculated the implied volatility for different single options using the newton raphson method. But, I also need to calculate the implied volatility which minimizes the sum of squared differences between the observed market price and the model price for each day. I guess one needs to use vectors (jacobian matrix) to do this, but I do not know how to expand the code to be able to do this. Anyone have any idea how this can be done? I have attached the [code] I have used to calculate the implied volatility for one option.

I have a table with daily sale entries and margins. I want a formula to calculate my sale and margin between certain hours.

The original data table is below.

I have a trading system spreadsheet that I am at a loss as to how to calculate the profit and loss.

I was unable to attach a sample of the spreadsheet. I hope this explanation works. If not, I could email it.

Where: Market position is either 1 or -1 Entry price is the price where the position is reversed.

For example: H3=1 and I3=100.56, then H4=-1 and I4=100.88, then H5=1 and I5=100.53

I need to calculate the profit as follows: I4 - I3 (because market position of 1 expects the price to go up) and then, I4 - I5 (because market position of -1 expects the price to go down)

I want to calculate this as a running total to the bottom of the column.

This is the formula I was working with, but it doesn't work:

Formula to get the Quarter number for the highest profit per Product, like in B16:F16.

The excersiser instracted us that it must be with one formula with no Macro, not User Defined Function and not openning additional colums.

I know how to find the qtr. Number - like for A2: =INT((MONTH(A2)+2)/3) but I am lost in finding how to combine the calculation for the Qtr and the most profitable Qtr. probably with MAX on SUM.

I am trying to set up a spreadsheet to calculate margin on stock positions.

There are 3 tiers, based on number of shares. My example:

400 shares in held in total.

1st 200 shs margin at 10%.

next 100 shs margin at 20%.

everything above 300 shs (ie 100) margin at 30%.

The 400 shs may be made up in any number of ways, (ie lots of smaller amounts) and i need a formula to give me the margin amount on each position, flexible enough for when positions are added / removed.

I've been looking at SUMPRODUCT but can only seem to make it work for the total, not each individual position.

I have attached a chart I'm working on. Each item is assigned a part number and it automatically takes away from the inventory each time an item is sold. I was wondering if the bottom half could work with the top to determine profit.

Example:

Customer purchases Part # 3 (C15) Quantity 1 (D15) for $450 (E15). Is there any way to set it up so whatever part number they enter...it subtracts their sold price from the cost (C5 through C11) to show the profit in (F15).

I had a member make the MACRO in the attached spreadsheet some time ago, when i run it on the spreadsheet a runtime mismatch error occurs. I cant find the mismatch.

I'm trying to design a Profit and Loss template that calculates off an accounting software data dump. I will attempt to explain the problem here but I have included a summary in the linked workbook which would be easier.

DOWNLOAD WORKBOOK: [URL]

I have two problems:

The Formula: Basically, I need to calculate every cell in the Profit and Loss statement based on the below criteria: The Profit and Loss item accounts, e.g. Gross Income has 6 accounts. There is a reference table for these - so incorporate index match/vlookup? User selected data from 4 combo boxes.

I am thinking a SUMIFS formula (using the combo box values) and somehow combining a vlookup to pull the items accounts. I'm starting to think that VBA is the best method?

Tweaking: The attached workbook is a small example. The full data dump contains 60,000 rows.

I'm trying to use the percentage depending on what price I enter in a cell. For example; if I enter $135 then 10% will be used, if I enter $65 then 12% will be used, and if I enter $47 then 14% will be used.

How do I enter a calculation that will show me my discount percentage from my supplier? (e4)

I then need to be able to drag the formula to the end of the sheet. Discount percentages will be different for each product, but the List Price and Net Costs are present, so the calculation needs to take these differences into consideration so that I get the correct discount percentage for each item.

Trying to calculate the lost revenue value for when a piece of machinary is offline for a period of time based on the hrly price during that particular period. The machines come on/off line at various times during the year so i am trying to make this a bit dynamic so i only need to add new info and not have to change the formula

Column F - Off date of machine Column G - Restart date of machine Column H - Hrly time Column I - Hrly price

I thought this formula (an array) would work for me

=average(if((Column H>=Column F) * (Column H<= Column G), Column I)) but it only calculates that average price for the first period and not new average prices for other periods.

what adjustments I can make to my formula or is there a better formula to use?

I`m relatively inexperienced with Excel, searched for a few days and have not been able to figure out how to calcuate this value. I have multiple worksheets to work out financials. I have a separate worksheet with the pricing breakdown based on volume. 2 columns

On a separate worksheet I want to add I6+I7, depending on the value multiply it by the value in the second column. So if the total is 520,000 then multiply it by 0.03.

I have the following data, where a negative number represents a sell of shares and a positive number a purchase and column C shows at what price the transaction happened.

A B C D E F

1 Ticker Quantity Price

Ticker Average Price

[Code] .......

And I've been asked to calculate the average price per ticker. For now it doesn't matter whether it's based on a first in first out principle or first in last out principle.

I am looking for a formula that can change the price of some of the items on sheet1 in column C by the amount found on Sheet2 in Column D. I would like it to base the calculation on column C in sheet2 (so I can choose if I want to add, subtract, multiply, divide, or make the price exact). I would like all prices that don't match these UPC codes to remain unchanged.

Intended Results can be seen on Sheet1 in Column E. Not sure if I should a formula with the Vlookup function or a macro, or maybe there is even a better solution.

attached is my spreadsheet. What I would like it to do is when someone marks a "N" or some other symbol in the box showing that supply not there; that excel copies the item #'s for the products listed and calculates up the prices for those items. Thank you in advance for your help. If at all possible if it could calculate the order on another sheet such as sheet 3 that would be fantastic

I want to create a loop that goes down all the rows in my spreadsheet and does the formula (end/beginning -1) for all the rows of cells. The "end" cell is the cell that is the farthest right in the row (some sort of end.xlright) and the "beginning" cell is column D of the row that is being calculated.

calculating the percentage of a percentage and writing the formula for excel.

There are 295 people in a room, of the 295, 75 or 25% are mothers. (I know how to calculate 25% - 75/295 = 25.42) of the 75 mothers 35 have 3 children, 32 have 2 children and 10 have 1 child.

35 is what percent of 25% 32 is what percent of 25% 10 is what percent of 25%

For this ordering tool, I would like to calculate and present the grand total, starting from a fixed range of two columns (each 10 rows), where one has quantities, and the other has the price/unit. Since I'm not allowed to change the layout of the ordering sheet (we still fax orders...), I can not add a column for the subtotals. Also, not all rows are filled necessarily.

I had some success with this as a worksheet function: =IF(ISERROR(H30*I30);0;H30*I30)+..., but I would really like to have it as a part of a big VBA function, since colleages might alter/delete the worksheet formula.

I looked and messed around with For loops, but I can't make it work.
