A profit center is an organizational unit in accounting that reflects a management-oriented structure of the organization for the purpose of internal control. We can analyze operating results for profit centers using either the cost-of-sales or the period accounting approach. By calculating the fixed capital as well, we can use our profit centers as investment centers.
