Total Absorption Costing

Total absorption costing is an approach to dealing with allocation of overhead costs in which all the overhead costs such as rent, rates, premises, head office administration etc., are fully recovered by being incorporated into the costs of products created. This approach contrasts with marginal costing, in which only variable costs are allocated to products. See also Costing, Absorption.
