What is the formula for calculating profit margins?

Profit margins are perhaps the simplest and most widely used financial ratios in corporate finance. A company's profit is calculated at three levels on its income statement, starting with the most basic – gross profit – and building up to the most comprehensive – net profit. Gross profit is the simplest profitability metric because it defines profit as all income that remains after accounting for the cost of goods sold (COGS).
