Income for a business is important and net income can help by eliminating taxes and more, giving you a true total of income. For example, if you make $10,000 and tax is 10%, your net income would be $9,000. Net income also goes by other names such as earnings or profit attributable. This number is used in the EPS or earnings per share calculation that allows investors to compare apples to apples.
