Manufacturing Overhead Costs

A company has many types of overhead costs. It may recognize these costs daily, as in the case of machinery repairs and the use of indirect materials and indirect labor. Or, it may record overhead costs periodically through adjusting entries. Property taxes, depreciation, and insurance are recorded periodically, for example. This is done using a summary entry, which summarizes the totals from multiple transactions.
