About this section

The Reports section lets you see various reports based on the choices you made when setting up your compliance cost constraints, that is:

  • whether the ongoing costs per year are constant or variable
  • whether the calculation is / is not by size of business (small, medium or large).

The types of reports are:

  • Business Cost Calculator report: breakdown of options, including costs and number of businesses affected.
  • Business Cost Calculator present value report: The total value now of all future costs over the timeframe specified.

  • Business Cost Calculator cost category report: breakdown of option costs and associated cost category costs.
