Summary

What is an Expense Center? Meaning.

An Expense Center is a cost center with an output that cannot be easily measured. Managers of these units typically have fixed budgets and should maximize service or output within that budget. Because the cost per output is difficult to measure, the users of an EC are generally not charged directly for its services. Rather these entities are paid via the overhead costs. As a result, the users of an EC tend to over consume its services. This then leads the manager of the EC to request additional budget.


Typical examples of these organizational entities are Human Resources, Accounting, Public Relations, Research and Development.
