i)  Variable Overhead Efficiency Variance and

ii)  Variable Overhead Expenditure Variance.

VOHV=  (Actual hours worked x Standard variable overhead rate per hour)- Actual variable over heads

i) Variable overhead variance

It is the variation between actual overhead expenditure incurred and the standard variable overheads set in for a particular period.

Variable overhead variance = (Standard variable overhead) - (Actual variable overhead)

ii) Variable Overhead Efficiency Variance

It defines the effect of change in labour efficiency overheads recovery.

Variable Overhead Efficiency Variance = Standard rate (Standard quantity - Actual quantity) where Standard rate = (Standard time for actual output - Actual time)
