managerial accounting

  1. Fixed Cost
    A cost that does NOT change in total despite a change in volume

    • Example: Rent
    • The only time rent would fluctuate is if you sign a new lease
  2. Variable Cost
    • That changes in total as volume changes
    • Remains constant on a per unit basis
  3. Mixed Cost
    • Part fixed, part variable
    • Example:
    • Cell phone bills
    • Utilities
  4. Opportunity Cost
    Income forgone by NOT selecting the other alternative
  5. Sunk Cost
    • Cost that cannot be reversed
    • Already been paid (incurred)
    • Sunk into investment
    • Can’t get it back
    • An irrelevant cost and should not be considered in making additional investment decisions

    An inventoriable cost

    Debit expenditure to “inventory”
