Fixed cost vs variable cost is the difference in categorizing business costs as either static or fluctuating when there is a change in the activity and sales volume. Fixed cost includes expenses that remain constant for a period of time irrespective of the level of outputs, like rent, salaries, and loan payments, while variable costs are expenses that change directly and proportionally to the 5/5(44). Fixed book price (FBP) is a form of resale price maintenance applied to allows publishers to determine the price of a book at which it is to be sold to the public. FBP can take the form of a law, mandatory to oblige by all retailers, or an agreement between publishers and example of a fixed book price law is French Lang Law, and the former Net Book Agreement in the.

In a certain sense, some sunk costs begin as variable costs. Once a variable cost is incurred and cannot be recovered, however, it is necessarily fixed in . In The Economics of Inaction, leading economist Nancy Stokey shows how the tools of stochastic control can be applied to dynamic problems of decision making under uncertainty when fixed costs are present.

If a product line is discontinued, the contribution margin of the product line will indicate the net income increase or decrease. A product whose revenues do not cover the sum of its variable costs, its traceable fixed costs, and its allocated share of general corporate administrative expenses should usually be dropped.

The degree of operating leverage is a cost accounting formula that shows how well you’re using your fixed costs to generate a profit. The more profit you can generate from the same amount of fixed cost, the higher your degree of operating leverage. Here’s the formula: Degree of operating leverage = contribution margin ÷ profit [ ]. The title-specific costs here are those that rise only as you sell books. You pay a shipping cost on a copy-by-copy basis - but the salaries of the personnel in fulfillment are fixed, and in doing the title p&l you shouldn’t include salaries as a charge because the shipping of this particular copy doesn’t increase anyone’s salary.
