The flexible budget steps beyond the master budget in organizing projected revenue and cost data. Managerial accountants utilize the flexible budget to accommodate for varying levels of activity such as sales volume. As the name implies, “flexible budgets flex, or change, when the volume of activity changes” (Edmonds, Edmonds, Olds, McNair, Tsay, & Schneider, 2007, p. 1061). Both the flexible budget and the master budget (also called a static budget), utilize “the same per unit standard amounts and the same fixed costs” (Edmonds, Edmonds, Olds, McNair, Tsay, & Schneider, 2007, p. 1062).
