Some other fixed costs are electricity bill, staff salaries per year, and also Exercisco fitness clubs hires mechanics to come in and check each equipment to make sure there is no damage so that the member will not be hurt in any way. Some variable costs are new equipment; this is a variable cost because the club will only purchase new equipment if the old is damaged or un-repairable. Also stationary which is used by staff to note down on paper and use pens etc. But the wages of staff is also a variable cost because they are paid monthly wages depending on how the business has done but the overall yearly wages is kept the same. Forecasting of Profit/Loss Exercisco currently records its Profit and Loss by doing a Cash Flow forecast; they can use this to predict if there is going to be any profit or loss in the net 12 months. The fitness club hires an accountant from an agency to produce the forecast, and show the fitness club, and then the fitness will know when they need to get an overdraft from the bank.
