Gross margin percentage

The gross margin percentage indicates the percentage of net sales remaining after cost of goods sold- calculated by dividing gross margin by net sales that can contribute to operating expenses and net profit before taxes. The higher this ratio, the more a firm has left to cover expenses and generate profit.                                                          

                                                  Gross margin percentage = Gross margin ÷ Net sales
