    Exact month to see when I break even

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to determine the exact month I will break even, given a set of revenue, discounts (cost) and the net revenue.

    I can determine the first month my cashflow becomes positive with the formula:

    =INDEX($B$1:$U$1,MATCH(TRUE,$B13:$U13>0,0))

    However, I want to know when my business become profitable considering accumulated costs in previous months.

    Please see attached spreadsheet

    try below formula
    =AGGREGATE(15,6,B1:U1/(SUBTOTAL(9,OFFSET(B13,,,1,COLUMN(B13:U13)-COLUMN(B13)+1))>=0),1)
