Fixed Overhead in Full Costing System

Hi Frank, it just means that fixed overhead is capitalized into the product, which means it increases the inventory value, until the inventory is sold.
When the product is sold, fixed overhead is expensed and, as a result, it is credited from the balance sheet and debited as expense in the P&L of the period.
