indirect costs and importance is laid on the relation among products, activities and costs so
that the goods produced could be assigned with indirect costs with much efficacy, which is
not possible under the conventional costing model (Brooks 2015). Exceptions could be
found where the managers of the enterprises find it extremely hard to assign the products
with some indirect costs in accordance with this model. For instance, it becomes
complicated for the managers and as a result, it might minimise their ability in assign the
same with indirect cost. However, all the necessary cost information are provided under the
ABC model due to which popularity is gained in almost all global industries and companies
