Common Size Income Statement Calculator

What does it do?

A common size income statement is one that has an additional column showing each monetary amount as a percentage of the revenue (sales) of the business.

The common size income statement calculator allows for two income statements to be entered so that comparisons can be made. The use of the common size income statement as a comparison tool is discussed more fully in our common size income statement tutorial.


This common size income statement calculator works out the percentage each line item of the income statement is of total revenue. The calculation for each line item is given by:

Line item % = Line item value / Total revenue value x 100%

For example, if the income statement has total revenue of 108,249, and shows operating expenses of 8,701, then operating expenses are 8,701/108,249 = 8.0% of total revenue
