Summary of Earnings Before Interest and Tax. Abstract


Calculation of EBIT


      Net Sales

-    Operating Expenses


      Operating Profit (EBIT)


Earnings Before Interest and Tax includes all profits from operations, before interest and income taxes are deducted. Normally, non-operating profits and non-operating expenses are not included in EBIT.

EBIT is a traditional measurement method that does not include capital costs.


An advantage of EBIT is it is easier to calculate and easier to observe at divisional or sub divisional levels of the firm.


Instead of EBIT also the terms Operating Profit and Operating Earnings are widely used.
