The formulae derive from:

• Net Profit = CR (Type: Gross Profit) - DR (Type: Gross Profit) + CR (Type: Net Profit) - DR (Type: Net Profit) [Sales(CR) - Sales Adjustment(DR) - Cost of Goods(DR) + Other Income(CR) - Expenses(DR)]
• Sales = CR (Type: Gross Profit) - DR (Type: Gross Profit, Account Type: SA) [Sales(CR) - Sales Adjustment(DR)]

Net Profit Margin = Net Profit / Sales

This Year = 17842.40 / (18318.83 – 418.80) = 0.997

Last Year = 1009.99 / (9.99 - 0.00) = 101.1

Gross Profit Margin = Gross Profit / Sales

This Year = 17301.72 / (18318.83 – 418.80) = 0.967

Last Year = 9.99/ (9.99-0.00) = 1
