Semi-Variable Cost

(redirected from Semi-Fixed Cost)

Semi-Variable Cost

A cost for an individual or company that consists of a fixed base cost and another cost that changes from time period to time period. For example, suppose one's landlord rolls utility costs together with the rent. One's rent thus becomes a semi-variable cost because one pays the rent (a fixed cost) and the electric, gas, and water bills (variable costs) together with the same check.
