Variable costs - is the cost of management and maintenance of production, changes in proportion to adjustments in production volumes.They are distributed on all the objects selected with the help of cost allocation base (output, wages, hours of work) Based on the actual capacity of the company in the reporting period.Thus, they are fully included in the cost of goods manufactured.

Fixed costs - is the cost of management and maintenance of production, which are stable enough (despite changes in production).They are allocated to cost objects using the special base (output, wages, hours of work), calculated based on the normal capacity of the enterprise.Unallocated fixed costs included in cost of goods manufactured in the period when they arise.The cost of products sold included the difference between the actual fixed costs and amount calculated on normal operating capacity.If you have multiple divisions or departments in the company overhead expenses are allocated in their section.

Accounting for overhead cost is based on:

- selected based cost allocation;

- calculated the normal power;

- the total value of the planned overhead cost to their broken down into fixed and variable.
