Maintained $ Margin Calculator
Maintained $ Margin Calculator Explained:
a) What is this? This calculator tells you the margin ($) after any price reductions.
b) What does this tell me? Retailers use this measure to determine what their margins are after they make any necessary price reductions. This is typically used by retailers who commonly Mark Down categories such as shoes and apparel.
c) Why should I use it? It is useful to establish a "real margin" after Mark Downs have been accounted for. Some categories have significant Mark Downs and this is often a different number to the "shelf margin". This lets you calculate the "real margin" after Mark Downs are taken into consideration.
d) Caution: Using this calculator doesn't mean you will get a margin you should be comfortable with. It merely tells you what margin you are getting. Also note that it is a Mark Up% not a GP%. Note that all margin calculations exclude GST/VAT.
