is it right to say that - under absorption is charged to the p&l as a loss?

    I personally would always say both words in a particular order out loud-
    i.e under / over rather than over / under, it makes it easier for me to then remeber which side of the 'T' account it would go on...

    debit (on the left) / credit (on the right)
    under (on the left) / over (on the right)

    The next bit, well you just have to say it like a mantra till it sticks in your head as I haven't found any novel methods of remembering it!

    under - reduces profit by increasing costs
    over - increases profit by decreasing costs

    As Roy Walker would say.....'say what you see' :laugh:
