This study is designed to provide knowledge for costing information and price determination.

The need for cost accounting came with increased industrialization, engineering an expansion in manufacturing.  It is therefore obvious that in efficient system of costing is essential for industrial control.

In period of boom, manufacturers are able to show profit notwithstanding the leakage which pass unchecked, but in periods of trade competition concealed inefficiencies have to track down and rigorous control must be exercised to ensure even modest margin profit.

There is not yet an agreed best method of costing products though it may be helpful to recognize that cost allocation are being used to obtain a mutually acceptable price and not necessary to portray caused and effect relationship of cost incurrence. But price determination from cost under efficient operation through efficient cost system will most probably approximate the price of the product to its value.

In this study, “Cost accounting information and price determination” (A case study of Nigerian Breweries Plc) the following research questions come to mind:  They are:

(i) Is Cost accounting information used as a management tool for price determination in Nigerian Breweries Plc?

(ii) Has the application of the Cost accounting information helped Nigerian Breweries to be efficient and effective in its operations?

(iii) What other technique apart from Cost accounting information does Nigerian Breweries employ in decision making?

(iv) Are these other techniques superior to Cost accounting information ?

(v) What problems do Nigerian Breweries encounter in decision making?



Ho: Cost-accounting information is not extensively used or applied in Nigerian Breweries Plc.

Hi: Cost-accounting information is extensively used or applied in Nigerian Breweries Plc.


Ho: The application of cost accounting information has helped in price determination.

Hi: The application of cost accounting information has not helped in price determination.


This work is intended to be of benefit to processing business in general.  It is hoped that by improving the profitability of hoped this study has benefited the economy as a whole.

The scope of this study is restricted to the cost accounting information and its utilization in determining the price of products. should have intended to cover all the manufacturing industries located in different States of the Federation but the researcher intends to limit this topic to only to Nigerian Breweries Plc 9th Mile Depot, Enugu State due to time constraints, distance and financial handicap.  The study of Nigerian Breweries 9th Mile Depot Enugu shall also serve other manufacturing companies in States of the Federation since the same techniques are applied in other companies.  Therefore, the researcher will rely heavily on the Nigerian Breweries 9th Mile Depot since they have adequate information data relevant to the study.



These are financial statements prepared from past activities of the enterprise.  Since these are actual figures of cost and revenue obtained in the past, management can determine the price of its product through it.


This is an element of financial management that generates information about the cost of an organization and its components.  As such, cost accounting is a subset of accounting in general.


There are elements of cost that are associated with or caused by two or more cost objective jointly, but are not directly traceable to each of them individually.


This is the regulation by executive action the costs of operating an undertaking particularly where such action is guided by cost accounting.


Cost center therefore can be defined as a location, person or item of equipment (or group of these) for which cost may be ascertained and used for purpose of cost control.
