OPEN REPURCHASE AGREEMENT is a repurchase agreement with no set maturity date and often a rate of return that fluctuates on a daily basis, depending on market rates. The yield on this type of investment is higher than on a daily repurchase agreement because the agreement often runs several days and the dealer usually requires some short notice before the investor can withdraw funds.
FIXED EXPENSES in the operation of a business are those expenses that remain the same regardless of production or sales volume, i.e. do not fluctuate with sales volume. Contrast with VARIABLE EXPENSES.
OVERHEAD ABSORPTION is the term used for describing the transfer of value from a fixed asset such as a building or machine to the final product. In this way the indirect costs of the entity can be assigned to the products or services supplied.
