Cost and Management Accounting serves as the bedrock for informed decision-making within organisations, providing vital insights into the intricacies of financial operations. At its core, this discipline encompasses various techniques aimed at optimising resource allocation, cost control, and performance evaluation. Through meticulous analysis of cost behaviours, such as fixed, variable, and semi-variable costs, managers gain a comprehensive understanding of the financial dynamics driving their business.
