18. Variable costing income statements show cost of goods sold based only on the variable costs. Variable costing income statements show the margin based on variable costs (cost of goods sold and administrative costs) and then deduct fixed costs. Fixed costs are not built into the cost of the product. Under absorption costing, fixed costs are included in the cost of the profit. Gross profit is shown net of variable costs and fixed costs allocated to the product, then variable and fixed administrative costs are deducted.Absorption costing has the greater chance of misuse by management because management can allocate fixed costs to the cost of the product that really should not be built into the product.
