Definition: Margin of Safety Ratio (MOSR)
Margin of safety is the extent over which the budgeted or actual sales exceed the break-even sales. In break-even analysis, it can be simply put as the difference between actual sales and break-even sales.
It denotes the extent to which the sales can drop before a company starts incurring losses. Also, the higher the margin of safety is, the lower is the risk of sales breaking even and higher is the profit.
