      Usually only 3 main theory questions come up on this and they're like this:

      3 Suitable procedures to monitor overheads?

      Set budgets (targets) for overheads

      Record actual figures for these overheads

      Compare the two overheads and decide where to make changes necessary

      Why does a business monitor its overheads?

      To predict if there will be shortfalls

      To identify if the company will be living within its means

      To see if its necessary to obtain loans

      Oh and how can one of these overheads be decreased (usually wages)

      Replace workforce with machinery

      Decrease overtime payments
