As an example, under CASif Company A's "residual expenses" defined as those expenses incurred by the home office — usually the corporate office — which cannot be identified to a specific contract, group of contracts, or company segment exceed a specified percentage of revenue, Company A must follow a dictated "three-factor" formula to allocate such expenses, but if Company B's residual expenses do not exceed the percentage even if, in dollar terms, they are greaterCompany B may follow the formula but is not required to do so.

In addition to complying with all 19 standards where applicablethe company must also file a CAS Disclosure Statement, which spells out the company's accounting practices such as if certain costs are treated as direct contract charges or as part of overhead expense.
