Cost Accounting Basis (Cost Centers)

The cost accounting basic package offers you full cost control. Create and change cost centres conveniently with freely designable entry features. Cost centres can be both alphanumeric and numeric.

Tree allocation-Programme

The clear graphic representation for the aggregation of cost centres is possible in any number of groups and on any number of levels. In addition, you benefit from multilingual cost centre-, account- and classification text names for you foreign language reports. 

Application and apportionment key  

The application and apportionment keys for fixed and/or variable costs are recorded per percentage, account, classification, reference size or quantity. Alternatively, year and month keys can be created. The fully automated allocation of amounts to cost centres significantly simplifies your task.  

Further advantages:

  • Entry of cost accounting basics directly under the accounts (manually, fixed or as per application key)  
  • Recalculation for changes in key or when using other basic data  
  • Partial apportionment: parts of a cost centre can be apportioned with several different keys
