Just from business prospective I was thinking we should compare how much we made this years so my question is how much did you company gross this year ?

You know, something like this might best be asked with a poll? Where you could include a bunch of different income range options.

Gross doesn't mean much anyway. Net makes more sense for this question.

When you make a new thread, you should be able to add poll options.

But as Mark pointed out, you may not gain much from a gross income poll. A lawn care company could easily take on plenty of jobs they either broke even on or even lost money on.

From an outsiders perspective, a gross income may appear impressive, but once you find the net income, you might be disappointed.

Exactly, Net pre tax income everything else is just a number and doesn't mean much, unless you are comparing companies and want to determine which has the best ROI comparing the percentages of gross vs net.
