Definition

Cost Elements track the type of costs or spend. They form categories of costs that are independent from external or financial reporting requirements, but help management to track costs according to internal accounting policies. The primary Cost Elements are more or less mirror images (copies) of P&L expense accounts from the financial chart of accounts. The integrated mass processing moves (and allocates) costs from primary into secondary Cost Elements. Those  secondary Cost Elements no longer are tied to the accounts used by financial and tax reporting (chart of accounts).
