Cost Accountants are responsible for comparing actual costs of purchases and sales to the estimates of the budget allocation of the company.  If in cases where the cost is higher than the estimate, the Cost Accountants inform the management and try to realign their resources.  They create and monitor purchase orders and ensure that the released funds for these purchases are in line with the company’s expense budget.  They keep and update records and practically control the spending of a company.
