Variance Analysis

Variance Analysis is the study of deviations of actual behaviour versus forecasted or planned behaviour in budgeting or management accounting. This is essentially concerned with how the difference of actual and planned behaviours indicates how business performance is being impacted. Variance analysis can be broken down into 2 steps: 1. Calculating and recording individual variances 2. Understanding the cause of each variance[1]
