Breakeven Analysis is the process of categorizing costs of production between variable and fixed components and deriving the level of output at which the sum of these costs, referred to as total costs per unit become equal to sales revenue. The analysis helps to determine the 'Breakenev Point' from this point of equality of sales revenue with total costs. At the breakeven point, the production activity neither generates a profit nor a loss. Breakeven analysis is used in production management and Management Accounting.

Which is more important accounting break-even point or financial break-even point?

The financial breakeven point is a more relevant measure than the accounting breakeven point because the accounting breakeven point does not consider the initial investment in the project. With any investment, one has the option to venture into it, or to take a less risky route and invest (in a bond or a stock that would give them a more guaranteed return). Thus an accounting breakeven, considers all cost, except the opportunity cost of the capital invested in project, and this is something that the financial breakeven considers. Financial breakeven point is the point where NPV is greater than or equal to zero: the point where there is economic value added® (a term trademarked by Stem-Stewart). This is because in calculating the financial breakeven, the formula includes the opportunity cost of capital: the initial investment divided by the timeannuity factor at the discount rate (where the discount rate is the opportunity cost of capital).
