Fixed manufacturing overhead applied

Fixed manufacturing overhead applied is the amount of fixed production costs that have been charged to units of production during a reporting period. If the overhead application rate is based on actual fixed costs incurred, then the amount of overhead applied should match the amount incurred. If the overhead application rate is instead based on a standard application rate, then the amount applied may be higher or lower than the actual cost incurred.
