Flexible Budgets and Overhead Analysis
<font color="blue"><b>Budget Variance</b></font id="blue">

A measure of the difference between the actual fixed overhead costs incurred during the period and budgeted fixed overhead costs as contained in the flexible budget.

<font color="blue"><b>Denominator Activity</b></font id="blue">

The activity figure used to compute the predetermined overhead rate.

<font color="blue"><b>Flexible Budget</b></font id="blue">

A budget that is designed to cover a range of activity and that can be used to develop budgeted costs at any point within that range to compare actual costs incurred.

<font color="blue"><b>Static Budget</b></font id="blue">

A budget created at the beginning of the budgeting period that is valid only for the planned level of activity.




<font color="blue"><b>Volume Variance</b></font id="blue">

The variance that arises whenever the standard hours allowed for the output of a period are different from the denominator activity level that was used to compute the predetermined overhead rate.

Dear sir,
According to my point of view the difference between fixed and flexible budget is as follows
<b>The fixed budget</b> is prepared based only on one level of output.
<b>A flexible budget</b> is a budget which is designed to change in accordance with the level of activity or relevant range attained.
Fixed cannot be changed after the period begins, whereas a flexible budget can be changed after the period begins
Fixed is a plan for a single level of production, whereas a flexible budget is several plans (one for each of several production levels).

Fixed includes only fixed costs, whereas a flexible budget includes only variable costs.

Please help me sir if I am wrong.

I think I was not taking your test. But your reply is correct.

But the following line in wrong

"Fixed includes only fixed costs, whereas a flexible budget includes only variable costs"

Both flexible and fixed budgets contain on budgeted fixed and budgeted variable costs.

Keep it up
