- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revenue - the income that a business has from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers. Revenue is also referred to as sales or turnover. Some companies receive revenue from interest, royalties, or other fees. Profits or net income generally imply total revenue minus total expenses in a given period. In accounting, in the balance statement it is a subsection of the Equity section and revenue increases equity, it is often referred to as the "top line" due to its position on the income statement at the very top. This is to be contrasted with the "bottom line" which denotes net income (gross revenues minus total expenses). For non-profit organizations, annual revenue may be referred to as gross receipts.
Turn over excludes VAT if VAT registered. In debts were outstanding at the start or end of the year, turnover figure would depend on whether cash-based (self-employed) or accruals based (ltd company) accounting is used.
