  41. 41. F. Break-Even Analysis:Break-even analysis is a management control device that approximates how much you must sellin order to cover your costs with no profit and no loss. Profit comes after break-even.Profit depends on sales volume, selling price, and costs. Break-even analysis helps you toestimate what a change in one or more of these factors will do to your profit. To figure it out,fixed costs (like rent) must be separated from variable costs (like the cost of goods sold). Break-Even analysis:We will have an average monthly sales of 4 crore tk. which in turn will give a profit of 30%on the sales deducting COGS, taxes & other costs that is 2 crore tk. monthly. So, the break–even point will be,Break Even Point = Fixed Costs / (Sales- variable costs)= 535700000 / (480000000-321000000)= 14 months = 1 year 2 months (approximately) Chart: Break-even Analysis is analyzed in the following chart:
