Additional Information

For a nonmanufacturer, gross earnings are essentially total sales less the cost of goods sold. For a manufacturer, gross earnings are the sales value of production, less cost of raw stock from which the production is derived. Included in this coverage are profits, continuing expenses, management payroll, and ordinary payroll.
