Tip:  Let replacement costs inform your business strategy

When you look at margins, don’t forget the replacement cost.  For example, if you bought a product from a supplier for $10 and sell it for $20, your margin is 50%. However, if the cost of the product has increased to $12 when it’s time to replace it, you’re margin based on the replacement cost is now 40%.  Depending on your business investment strategy, if the replacement cost margin is lower, you may decide to increase the retail price, so that you have enough money to replace future items.
