Say for instance, you make an investment which is expected to make a turn over of $10,000 annually for next 5 years. Initial costs incurred in making the investments amounts to $20,000. So what is the total profit anticipated? It is the sum of the expected profits (operational) and the investments cost, which is $30,000. So what is the annual profit expected? It is $30,000/5 which is about $6000.
