Expired Cost

In cost accounting, cost has been defined as money’s value which is used for producing something which is scarce in the market. Expired cost is also a part of cost.

Expired cost means the incurred expenses at the time when a company received benefits. Expired cost is that cost which is identified as expenditure or expense. When benefits is received or consumed by a business entity from the cost then it’s termed as an expired cost. Another definition of expired cost is that it is complete loss in an asset’s value. The expense of depreciation is the best example of an expired cost. This expense is taken into use for a particular asset which has been used in the process of production and which expires after the sales of the goods.

Expired cost can be better explained with the help of an example stated below. If any particular business unit, say ABC is spending $ 10,000 for acquiring catalogs of a product, which is recorded, in the month of January as prepaid-expense. These catalogs have handed-over, in the month of March, in any particular trade-show & the marketing-expense is charged by it $ 10,000 cost. The amount $ 10,000, now becomes, in the month of March, an expired cost.

After the expense is incurred it becomes expired cost & is used totally for yielding revenue. Few revenue-cost examples are S & D expenses (selling & distribution-expenses) and cost -of -goods -sold -expense. It is not necessary that cash is required for making payment for every expense.

Even if a promise is made for doing payment in

future then it is done for obtaining profits. The cost of manufacturing is capitalized as inventory of finished-goods & when the goods are sold, these costs expire and they now become an expense.

Even factory-overhead has been treated in the form of an expired cost. This is so because, in inventory of cost -of -finished -goods, factory overheads are included. When selling & distribution-expenses aren’t included in inventory of cost -of -finished –goods, then it is regarded as expenses. Factory-machine’s depreciation brings an increment in the use of goods which is manufactured. These depreciations are written under the category work-in-progress & inventory of finished-goods. From the revenues deduction is done of selling & distribution-expenses whenever depreciation is incurred.

Unexpired cost is different from expired cost. Where, expired cost is the cost which has been already incurred, unexpired cost are those cost which has to be paid in future. Unexpired cost has been regarded as asset where as expired cost is an expense.

Expired cost is calculated as follows:

 Expired cost = Revenues – Selling & Distribution-expenses

 Where as, unexpired cost is calculated as follows:

 Unexpired cost = Asset’s historical-cost – depreciation that is accumulated

Getting an Emergency Passport for a Child with Only One Parent

In order to minimize the risk of international child abductions, the Department of State requires that children under the age of 16 must have the consent of both parents in order to be issued a passport. Also, adults applying for a passport on behalf of a child under the age of 16 must be able to prove that either the child is theirs or that they are otherwise authorized to apply for the passport.


It may seem absurd to have to prove your relationship to your own flesh and blood, but you won’t be able to get a passport without doing so. Here are the documents that the Department of State will accept:


Your child’s birth certificate listing you as the parent. If your child was born overseas and the document is not in English, you’ll also need a translation.

A Consular Report of Birth Abroad, again listing you as a parent.

An adoption decree listing you as the adopting parent

A court order establishing that you have custody or guardianship of the child.


The easiest way to demonstrate that both parents consent is for both parents to accompany the child to apply for a passport. However, in today’s world, that often isn’t possible, especially if the family is applying for an emergency passport. The following documents will help you demonstrate that both parents have consented to the emergency passport being issued:


A notarized Statement of Consent Form DS-3053 signed by the other parent.

A certified birth certificate or Consular Report of Birth Abroad that shows only the name of the parent applying for the passport.

A court order awarding the applying parent with sole custody.

Adoption decree that only has the applying parent’s name on it.

A court order permitting travel

Legal proof that the other parent is either deceased or has been declared legally incompetent.

If you can’t reach the other parent to get any of the documents listed above, submit Form DS-3053 explaining why you cannot provide evidence of consent from the other parent.
