A static budget is one that is fixed.
Let’s say you pay your salesmen a 10% commission and you plan to sell $100,000. You would budget your commission expense at .10 x $100,000 or $10,000. But what if the salesmen sell $120,000 in product and you pay them .10 x $120,000 or $12,000? If you were doing a static or unchanging budget you would say that you were $2,000 over budget and berate your managers for going over budget. A static budget is best for companies that have a pretty accurate sales forecast. It also works for fixed costs.
