Imputed costs are not actually incurred in some transactions but which are relevant to the decision as they part into a particular situation.This cost doesn’t enter into traditional accounting system but they are being related with economic reality, help in making better decision.

For example,  The owner of a house ha not to pay rent but it should take into consideration in making decision, otherwise cost will be understated.

Imputed costs consist of the opportunity costs of time and capital that the manager has invested in producing the given quantity of production and the opportunity costs of making a particular choice among the alternatives being considered.
