What is Revenue?

The basic revenue definition is the total amount of money brought in by a company’s operations, measured over a set amount of time. A business’s revenue is its gross income before subtracting any expenses. Profits and total earnings define revenue—it is the financial gain through sales and/or services rendered. Revenue is typically calculated by adding up all of a company’s standard earnings, in addition to gained interest and any equity increase accrued over the given time period
