Activity-based cost (ABC)

Activity-based cost (ABC) refers to accounting procedures that can quantify the true profitability of different activities by identifying their actual costs. ABC accounting tries to identify the real costs associated with serving each customer- the costs of products and services based on the resources they consume. The company estimates all revenue coming from the customer, less all costs.
