Basically difference between the business profit (also known as accounting profit) and economic profit is that in economic profit, profit or loss is calculated by subtracting opportunity cost of the inputs used from the revenue of sales. On the other hand, accounting or business profit is the difference between the total revenue and total costs incurred to earn that revenue. Now, in business accounting normal return is the minimum profit that is required to cover the costs of inputs and all of the expenses associated with it. It can be a profit just greater than the breakeven profit (which is zero). On the other hand, economic profit is just a forgone cost estimation. Therefore, normal profit is required in business profit and not in economic profit, which is one of the differences between the two types of profits.
