    I'm weary of questions with no details so am not going to rewrite it out, holding open the Osbourne book while typing is awkward enough. If this is Gamma Ltd, then the total fixed costs are

    Current fixed production costs £700,000, plus
    Fixed selling & distribution costs (reduced from £400000 to) £250,000, plus
    Additional investment in assets, Depreciated at £400,000 p.a.

    This sum equals the £1,350,000 figure on p108

    Not sure why you would add Profit .

    The question gives you a particular Depreciation amount for the NCA so we know this is fixed and not a diminishing balance

    Fixed cost 700000 add selling and distribution cost 150000add depreciation 400000 Add three together gives me 1250000
    Not 1350000

    Selling & Distribution FC is £250,000 Its not the variance from last year to this year, just paraphrased that line from the question since you didn't add any information
