A cost center is a business reporting building block. It is used in financial analysis to allocate expenses to one or more projects and/or business activities (or overhead functions like general administration).

Every invoice or expense, or part of it, can be allocated to a project, that is supported by the expenses.

If a resource is shared, a pro-rata split can be made, as agreed by the business.
