A Cost Centre is any unit of an organisation to which
transactions (generally, revenue) can be allocated. When
only costs or expenses are allocated to these units, they

allocated to these units, they become Profit Centres. You
can now obtain a Profit and Loss account of each such
Profit Centre.

nature of the transaction. It does not readily disclose,
