agree  xxxBourth: Could well be. That would be "coût de revient" in good French.

agree  Sylvia Smith: yes, cost of sales. coût de revient is somewhat different in English - manufacturing or production cost - but in some contexts it could be the same depending on what the company does (manufacturer vs. retailer, for example).
