    Gross profit = £1,000
    Turnover = £2,000

    Gross profit percentage = Gross profit/ Turnover * 100

    £1,000/£2,000 x 100 = 50%

    What does this percentage mean? for every £1, the business makes 50p?

    Hello again!

    Okay, sorry just overwhelmed with all the definitions I have to learn, but basically a business makes £2000, after all the COGS have been taken from the figure we're left with £1000 as GP
    We've made £2000 but it's cost us £1000 to make that?

    I see you've replied to my stocks question aswel (thanks a lot for your help)
    http://ycharts.com/companies/AAPL/gross_profit_margin I've googled Apple's GP Margin... on the graph their current figure for GP is 38.63%

    Every dollar Apple spends they recieve 38.63 dollars as GP?

    No, Its every $100 they receive from sales they will earn $38.63 gross profit (gross profit = Revenue - variable costs) Remember GP is not the final profit.
