The Brentwood store is just one of many stores owned and operated by the company. The Show Department is one of many departments at the Brentwood Store. The Central Warehouse serves all of the company’s stores.
What is the total amount of the costs listed above that are not direct costs of the Brentwood store?
I’m getting C because I added The corporate legal office salaries, corporate headquarters building base, and central warehouse lease cost because those costs really don’t apply to the Brentwood store which means they are not direct costs of the Brentwood store, right? If it doesn’t deal directly with this store’s cost, then it’s not a direct cost, right? Help please! Just want to make sure this is right. Thanks in advance!
