Decision-making is one of the most important functions by the management especially if decision-making requires such costs as relevant costs. Information on the relevant costs becomes an important thing that the company always needs in making the right decision. Every decision taken by the management will be a benchmark of success of a company in the future. Relevant Costs represent a different future cost on each alternative. All decisions relate to the future. Therefore, only future costs can be relevant to the decision. However, to be relevant, a cost must not only be a future cost, but it must also be different from one alternative to another.
