Question 3 (5 marks)

Budgeted costs of the operating the plant

for 10,000 to 20,000 hours:

      Fixed operating costs per year                           $240,000

      Variable operating costs                                              $10  per hour

Practical capacity                                                        20,000  hours per year

Budgeted long-run usage per year:

      Lamp Division            800 hours × 12 months =     9,600  hours per year

      Flashlight Division      450 hours × 12 months =     5,400  hours per year


Assume that practical capacity is used to calculate the allocation rates. Further assume that actual usage of the Lamp Division was 700 hours and the Flashlight Division was 400 hours for the month of June.



a.    If a single-rate cost-allocation method is used, what amount of operating costs will be budgeted for the Lamp Division each month? For the Flashlight Division each month?


b.   For the month of June, if a single-rate cost-allocation method is used, what amount of cost will be allocated to the Lamp Division? To the Flashlight Division? Assume actual usage is used to allocate operating costs.


c.    If a dual-rate cost-allocation method is used, what amount of operating costs will be budgeted for the Lamp Division each month? For the Flashlight Division each month?


d.         For the month of June, if a dual-rate cost-allocation method is used, what amount of cost will be allocated to the Lamp Division? To the Flashlight Division? Assume budgeted usage is used to allocate fixed operating costs and actual usage is used to allocate variable operating costs.

a. Oregon Lumber processes timber into four products. During January, the joint costs of processing were $280,000. There was no inventory at the beginning of the month. Production and sales value information for the month is as follows: (2 marks)

Board feet

Splitoff Point

Ending Inventory

2 x 4’s


$0.30 per board foot

500,000 bdft.

2 x 6’s


0.40 per board foot

4 x 4’s


0.45 per board foot

100,000 bdft.



0.10 per board foot

50,000 bdft.




Determine the value of ending inventory if the sales value at splitoff method is used for product costing and explain why product costing is important. Round to 3 decimal places when necessary.



b. Silver Company uses one raw material, silver ore, for all of its products. It spends considerable time getting the silver from the ore before it starts the actual processing of the finished products, rings, lockets, etc. Traditionally, the company made one product at a time and charged the product with all costs of production, from ore to final inspection. However, in recent months, the cost accounting reports have been somewhat disturbing to management. It seems that some of the finished products are costing more than they should, even to the point of approaching their retail value. It has been noted by the accounting manager that this problem began when the company started buying ore from different parts of the world, some of which require difficult extraction methods. (3 marks)





Can you explain how the company might change its accounting system to reflect the reporting problems better? Are there other problems with the purchasing area?
