bénéfice brut or profit brut or marge brute

All three are correct.

Bénéfice brut

Le bénéfice brut (ou profit brut, ou marge brute) d'une société est calculé en effectuant l'opération suivante : chiffre d'affaires net moins coût des marchandises vendues.

profit brut


"gross benefit" is not an accounting term. It would be used to describe the financial benefit of a project or initiative when the calculation is not done according to accounting principles. I could not find "gross benefit" or "benefit" in financial dictionaries.
In French however, "bénéfice" is an accounting term that translate to "income" or "earning". From Lexique du Trader:
Solde positif des opérations effectuées au cours d’une période considérée (un exercice). Il se calcule en déduisant des produits réalisés, la totalité des charges s’y rattachant (charges d’exploitation, financières et exceptionnelles). Il traduit l’enrichissement de l’entreprise.
Bénéfice can also be found in the financial statements of several companies.
In French, "profit" is a more general term that applies to projects, initiatives and stock market gains. Generally it is not found in company financial statements.

I hope all this helps,
