CA ( chiffres d'affaires) can be translated as Business figures and also BF? I have to use the abbreviation.
Thanks guys!

turnover
Explanation:
Usually "chiffre d'affaires" is: turnover. Perhaps you could use: TO.
I've translated and I translate many texts that deal in this field as I work as a translator in a Chamber of Commerce but so far I don't recall the use of Business Figures for Chiffre d'affaires.
I hope it helps

Total Sales


Explanation:
Chiffres d'affaires is sometimes referred to as turnover, but it actually means the total sales a company generated in a given period. Look an any annual report and it should provide you with an abbreviation. I've seen it TTL SALES on two lines.
"Le Dictionnaire de la comptabilité et de la gestion financière" gives the translation as "sales"
