A general manager is an executive who has overall responsibility for managing both the revenue and cost elements of a company's income statement, known as profit & loss responsibility.
An income statement or profit and loss account is one of the financial statements of a company and shows the company’s revenues and expenses during a particular period.
In production, research, retail, and accounting, a cost is the value of money that has been used up to produce something, and hence is not available for use anymore.
In accounting, revenue is the income that a business has from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers.
