M2A2 Assignment 2: Calculating Inventory
Finlon Upholstery Inc. uses a job-order costing system to accumulate manufacturing costs. The company’s work-in-process on December 31, 2001, consisted of one job (no. 2077), which was carried on the year-end balance sheet at $156,800. There was no finished-goods inventory on this date.
Finlon applies manufacturing overhead to production on the basis of direct-labor cost. (The budgeted direct-labor cost is the company’s practical capacity, in terms of direct-labor hours multiplied by the budgeted direct-labor rate.) Budgeted totals for 2002 for direct labor and manufacturing overhead are $4,200,000 and $5,460,000, respectively. Actual results for the year are as follows:
Actual Results Direct Materials Used $5,600,000.00 Direct Labor $4,350,000.00 Indirect Material Used $65,000.00 Indirect Labor $2,860,000.00 Factory Depreciation $1,740,000.00 Factory Insurance $59,000.00 Factory Utilities $830,000.00 Selling and Administrative Expenses $2,160,000.00 Total $17,664,000.00
Job No. 2077 was completed in January 2002 and there was no work in process at year-end. All jobs produced during 2002 were sold with the exception of Job No. 2143, which contained direct-material costs of $156,000 and direct-labor charges of $85,000. The company charges any under- or over-applied overhead to the cost of goods sold category.
