Hi Pankaj,

Cost element is a cost carrier that carries the cost from one object to another. There are different types of cost elements. For example,

Primary cost element carries the cost from the P&L GL Account (FI) to the respective cost object in CO.

The secondary cost elements carry the costs within the CO module between different cost objects.

Examples of cost objects are cost center, internal order, process order etc.
