CFA Practice Question

Product costs are directly matched against revenues while period costs are not. True or False?
Correct Answer: True

A cost that can be directly matched against related revenues is a product cost. Period costs, on the other hand, cannot be directly traced to revenues. Period costs are recorded as expenses in the time period assumed to be benefited.
