1 Week 09 Accounting for overheads and product costs
2 Objectives To introduce - The process for dealing with overhead costs - Marginal costing - Absorption costing - Activity based costing To compare the three costing systems
3 Key concept 16.1 – Direct and indirect costs
4 Key concept 16.2 – Full costing
5 Figure 16.1 – components of cost of goods sold
6 Key concepts – Stages in the apportionment process
7 Key concept 16.3 – Activity based costing
8 Key concept 16.4 – Marginal costing
9 Absorption costing Absorption costing – uses predetermined overhead rates Budgeted costs / output Actual costs / output Difference between budget and actual = under or over absorption of overhead costs
10 Costing systems Job costing Process costing
11 Inventory valuations Marginal costing of inventory excludes production overheads Full costing of inventory includes production overheads
12 Absorption Costing Example Stroud Ltd is a small manufacturing company which operates from rented premises on a trading estate. The following is available regarding its overheads. The company is split into 5 cost centres Cutting, Painting and Assembling, which are production departments, and two production-related service departments, maintenance and canteen.
14 Other production data Floor areaNumber ofValue of Maintenance (sq mtrs) employees machines (£) Services (%) Cutting2, , Painting1, , Assembling2, , Maintenance 1, ,000 Canteen1,500 20, , , NOTEThe maintenance department provides services to all production departments and to the canteen, but not to itself. The canteen provides services to all production departments and to the maintenance department, but not to itself. Required: Allocate and apportion overheads to production departments using appropriate apportionment bases.
16 Apportionment bases The company has provided data on one of its lines, "The Moreton" as shown below: The company expects to manufacture 5,000 units of this product Details per unit are: Direct materials4 Kg of £1.50 per Kg Direct labour Cutting Dept2 £6.00 per hour Painting Dept3 £4.00 per hour Assembling Dept5 £5.50 per hour Machine use in the Cutting Dept is expected to be 10,000 hours (ie 2 hours per unit) Required: Calculate the overhead absorption rates for each production department using the most appropriate apportionment base.
17 Solution – appropriate apportionment bases Cutting Dept85,137/10,000= £8.51 per machine hour Painting Dept56,749/15,000= £3.78 per labour hour Assembling Dept86,114/25,000= £3.44 per labour hour Then: On the basis of the information you have been given and have calculated Calculate the full cost of ONE unit of this product.
