Cost Center Structure

What is a Cost Center?

A cost center is a structure that represents a department in a company to which costs can be allocated.
The cost center's main function is to track all expenses linked to a particular function or department, which supports our Profit & Loss/ Financial Results structure, as well as budget department owners controls.
