What is BEP, Anyway?
The break-even point (BEP) is the level of production or sales at which total revenues equal total costs, resulting in no profit or loss. It is a critical financial metric used to determine the sustainability of a business’s pricing strategy and cost structure.
Break Even Point (Units) Fixed Costs ➗ (Price per Unit ➖ Variable Costs per Unit)
- Fixed Costs: $10,000
- Variable Costs Per Unit: $50
- Price Per Unit: $100
- BEP: 200 units
- Company A needs to sell 200 units to cover all its costs. Any sales beyond 200 units contribute to profit.
- Fixed Costs: $20,000
- Variable Costs Per Unit: $20
- Price Per Unit: $80
- BEP: ~333.33 units
- Company B needs to sell approximately 334 units to cover all its costs. Any sales beyond 334 units contribute to profit.
TL;DR: The break-even point (BEP) is when a business’s total revenue equals its total costs. It is a key metric for businesses to track because it can help them understand their financial performance and make informed decisions about pricing and marketing. Reaching the BEP means a business is not making a profit, but it’s also not losing money. Sales beyond the BEP contribute to profit.
