What is a good formula for "break-even analysis"?

There are several ways to look at this, but the key is to separate variable and fixed costs (rent, non-commission employees, etc). You then take the fixed costs and divide by the gross margin percentage, so a lower gross margin should require higher sales to reach break-even (Break-Even Sales = Fixed Costs / Gross Margin Pct).
