Cost of Goods Sold, or COGS for short, is all about the money a company spends to make the stuff it sells. It’s like the recipe cost for a baker – how much they spend on flour, sugar, and eggs to bake a cake. COGS covers the obvious expenses: the raw materials that go into the product and the wages paid to the workers who make it.
