Applied cost
« on: October 18, 2018, 03:23:12 PM »
Applied cost is a way to allocate costs across items produced or services performed within a line of business. It makes sure that overhead costs of the operation are accounted for. Applied cost is used as a method for tracking costs within cost accounting, which is a discipline of accounting which compares costs of production to output produced. Cost accounting is often part of a company's decision-making for many processes including budgeting and implementing cost controls. Cost accounting is different than other disciplines of accounting, such as managerial accounting and accrual accounting.
