neutral  Kim Metzger: I think we'd better wait for one of our financial experts. You usually don't find the correct term of art by adding words together. In accounting, I believe the usual term for Rechnung is statement.

Profit Margin Statement

Erfolgsspannenrechnung scheint der Oberbegriff für die Ermittlung des Jahresergebnisses, Zinsüberschussreportes sowie des Zinsergebnisses zu sein. Beim Englischen Googlen kommt man mit Profit Margin Statement zu ähnlichen Ergebnissen.
Mit 25 Google-Hits ist Erfolgsspannenrechnung auch nicht gerade ein etablierter Begriff.
