Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    • How is INCOME EARNED?

    • A.

      Income = Cash-in less Cash-out. (I get money by credit and working.)

    • B.

      Income = Revenue less Expenses. (I get money by earning more than I spend.)

    • C.

      Income = Cash less Costs. (I get cash by working.)

    Correct Answer
    B. Income = Revenue less Expenses. (I get money by earning more than I spend.)
    Explanation
    Income is what I have left over after my costs are paid. Income = Revenue - Expenses.

    Cash-in is all money coming in (loans, credit cards, wages, sales).
    I may get money from credit cards or loans, but debt is NOT income.

    Revenue is all money received or coming in later (wages, sales, commission, accounts receivable (debts owed to me))

    Income is based on Revenue. One easy way to remember income: the government will (likely) tax it.
