Help Me Point Out The Indirect Product Costs?

Postby Alion » Mon Oct 09, 2017 12:48 am

An indirect cost is a cost that cannot be traced to the cost object, directly.

There are three different ways to approach this problem.

Costs that are Plant wide overhead costs.

department overhead costs.

Activity Based costs.

The list you have can be catergorised into these three areas.The only question I have is the purchase of raw materials, I would include this in the direct costs of the product. All the others are either department, or plantwide costs, and form the manufacturing overhead costs of the product.
