Variable Cost

Variable cost is a type of cost that changes in proportion to the level of production or sales, unlike a fixed cost. It includes operational costs such as raw materials, labour and other expenses that vary with the volume of output.

For instance, for a manufacturer of leather shoes, the variable cost will include the cost of leather inventory used to complete an order. For a large order of shoes, the variable cost will be more and vice versa.
