Spanish term or phrase:margen industrial
this is simply a cost and amortisation estimate and under both fixed and variable costs as the last entry is "margen industrial". I saw "margen comercial" as "markup" or "profit margin". Is this the same???
Explanation: It used to be that, at least in Spain and probably other W Europe countries, "margen industrial" was government-fixed and mandatory in industrial processes including construction. It was mostly 15%. Now it's not official, but the tradition/habit prevails, clients still expect it, and supplier/provider firms continue making an entry as such, varying from 8% to 15% --- on the face of it.
