The essence of responsibility accounting is

  1. Developing performance reports emphasizing costs and revenues that managers can control.
  2. Allocating service department costs to production departments so that production department managers know all costs for which they are responsible.
  3. Determining who is to blame for unfavourable variances.
  4. Investigating all variances, regardless of their status as favourable or unfavourable
