> Types of Overheads --Cost pertaining to a cost centre or cost unit may be divided into two portions direct and indirect. The indirect portion of the total cost constitutes the overhead cost which is the aggregate of indirect material cost, indirect wages and indirect expenses. CIMA defines indirect cost as “expenditure on labour, materials or services which cannot be conveniently identified with a specific saleable cost per unit.” --The various classifications are: **(i) Functional classification,** (a) Manufacturing Overhead, (b) Administration Overhead, (c) Selling Overhead, (d) Distribution Overhead, and (e) Research and Development Expense **(ii) Classification with regard to behaviour of the expenditure,** (a) Fixed overhead, (b) Variable overhead, (c) Semi-variable or Semi­-fixed overhead. **(iii) Element-wise classification,** (i) Indirect Materials; (ii) Indirect Labour; and (iii) Indirect Expenses **(iv) Classification according to nature of expenditure**
