Calculation of the contribution margin scheme

Challenges

Multi-level measurement of contribution margins for reports in sales controlling and for reconciliation to the P&L statement

Risk and profit-oriented preliminary and final costing in the sense of contribution margin accounting is indispensable for credit institutions. In the case of undifferentiated pricing, the risk premiums collected may not cover the actual costs and defaults. In particular, undifferentiated pricing leads to the loss of customers with good credit ratings and, in contrast, attracts customers with poor credit ratings. In this context, the structured preparation of management-relevant information combined with a transparent representation of the results plays an important role.
