Q&A Forum

Our Company performs oil changes. Our oil distributors charge us a disposal fee to pick up/dispose of used oil from customers vehicles. We charge our customers a disposal fee. Should the customer fee charged be recognized as offset to COGS or Revenue?

The fee is not a one to one, in that sometimes the disposal fee is higher or lower than the actual cost our oil distributors charge us, as the disposal fee fluctuates.
