p. 937. Internal decision-making: costs and volumes
- Christopher Nobes
‘Internal decision-making: costs and volumes’ looks at decision-making by managers.

Typical financial documents produced under this category are costing reports, break-even reports, and budgets. Types of cost and how cost information is used for break-even analysis is examined. What sort of decisions can management accounting help with? Why are some costs relevant and others irrelevant? How does a company decide at what volume to operate? What are indirect costs, and how are they taken into account in decisions?
