I learned on income statement in accrual accounting, revenues plus gains less expenses and losses is reported as net income( or net earnings) if positive, or net loss if the amount is negative. I'm not sure if I have ever seen account title like "net revenue" before, though it seems similar to "net income". Are they interchangeable in financial reporting? Or maybe I haven't fully learned enough to distinguish consolidated statements of earnings and income statement.

Your response would be appreciated.

Net revenue = Net sales = Turnover
(i.e. Sales - Sales Return - trade discount)

I was a bit confused by the account titles at the time.
I deduced the following from the financial statement:

Total net revenue -Total operating expenses =Earnings from operations
Earnings from operations- Interest and other, net =Earnings before taxes
Earnings before taxes – Provision for taxes = Net earnings

Therefore, Total net revenue – Total operating expenses – Interest and other, net – Provision for taxes = Net earnings(Net income)

Thank you for your response, Triest.
