If you work with profit margins versus mark-ups, you can make your life a lot easier by purchasing an inexpensive calculator from Texas Instruments.

The TEXAS INSTRUMENTS PROFIT MANAGER BA-20 DESKTOP CALCULATOR has been on the market for twenty years. Chances are the person you are trying to sell has one on his desk. This baby will run you as little as $12.99 at Amazon or Staples or Officemax but it can save you a lot of time and money when you are negotiating a deal.

It is very easy to use. Type in the cost of what you are selling and enter the profit margin you are looking to make and the calculator gives you the selling price. The calculator is small, lightweight and works on solar power. The buttons are large and you won’t even need to read the instruction booklet.

You need this calculator even if it is only to make sure that you are being paid accurate commissions. The BA stands for Business Analyst.
