Income vs. Expense
The pie charts below show aggregate gross income, and the related expenses, for 2009-2010.
The pie chart for expenses has been scaled visually to represent that expenses consume about 10% of gross income. The table below provides details about expenses from 2009-2010.
|Overhead||36.4%||Office Expenses, Legal and Professional Services, Postage, Professional Dues, Music Purchases|
The chart below shows income versus expenses on a year-to-year basis. The grey line indicates net income, which varies depending on factors like whether the year’s income includes a lengthy tour backing a featured artist – which would pay a background vocalist soon after the performances – or if the year’s income depends more upon TV/film work and their associated mailbox money, which can take much longer to receive.
