The topic of this thesis is a case study regarding the customer profitability (CP) of a service company in Iceland that provides services to tourists. The calculations of CP are provided with the accounting system Time-driven activity-based costing (TDABC). The findings in the case study revealed that an accounting system like the TDABC system can help companies identify profitability of customer groups and single customers. The TDABC system helps identify all costs associated with a company´s operations and allocates both direct and indirect costs in time units to each activity provided by company. The calculations provided with the TDABC system can help managers improve decision making regarding pricing and budgeting. Companies can increase their profit by having relevant informations on the actual costs associated with the services provided. The TDABC system is easy to implement and update. Therefore, service companies could benefit from the knowledge the model provides, improve their operations and understand the profitability of the customers that they serve.
