4. ? 12,000 15,000 180,000 20,000 20,000 ?

SOLUTION 1 (a) Elements of Cost:

1. Material: The production supplies of an organization that features as revenue expenditure purchased from a third party. Material may be classified as direct materials or indirect materials. Materials are not necessarily raw materials, but can include components and sub-assemblies used in the finished product.

2. Labour: Expenditure on wages paid to those operators who are both directly and indirectly concerned with the production of the product, service, or cost unit.

3. Overhead: An indirect cost of an organization is called overhead. Overheads are usually classified as manufacturing overheads, administration overheads, selling overheads, distribution overheads, and research and development cost. SOLUTION 1 (b) Computation of Cost of Goods Manufactured (Case – 1): Manufacturing cost 53,000 Add: Work – in – process beginning inventory 5,000

Total work – in – process during the period 58,000 Less: Work – in – process ending inventory (8,000)

Cost of goods manufactured Rs.50,000

Computation of Cost of Goods Sold (Case – 1): Cost of goods manufactured 50,000 Add: Finished goods beginning inventory 10,000

Finished goods available for sale 60,000 Less: Finished goods ending inventory (12,000)

Cost of goods sold Rs.48,000

Q.No.2 STANDARD COSTING Amjad Company presents the following information about standard cost and actual cost for the month of November 2014:

Standard Actual

Material 5,000 units at a cost of Rs.75,000 Costing Rs.79,200 at a unit price of Rs.16.00

Labour 5,500 hours at an hourly rate of Rs.9.00 5,600 hours at an hourly rate of Rs.9.50

Factory overhead

Fixed cost Rs.8,000 and variable cost Rs.5,000 for a normal volume of 10,000 units

Fixed cost Rs.8,000 and variable cost Rs.4,800 for production of 9,000 units

REQUIRED (a) Calculate:

(i) Material price and quantity variance. (ii) Labour wage and efficiency variance. (iii) Factory overhead controllable and volume variance.

(b) Give entries in General Journal to record and to close the variance accounts. SOLUTION 2 (a) Computation of Material Price Variance: Material price variance = (Standard price – Actual price) x Actual quantity Material price variance = (75,000/5,000 – 16.00) x (79,200/16.00) Material price variance = (15.00 – 16.00) x 4,950 Material price variance = (4,950) (Unfavourable) Computation of Material Quantity Variance: Material quantity variance = (Standard quantity – Actual quantity) x Standard price Material quantity variance = {5,000 – (79,200/16.00)} x (75,000/5,000) Material quantity variance = (5,000 – 4,950) x 15.00 Material quantity variance = 750 (Favourable) Computation of Labour Wage Variance: Labour wage variance = (Standard price – Actual price) x Actual hours Labour wage variance = (9.00 – 9.50) x 5,600 Labour wage variance = (2,800) (Unfavourable) Computation of Labour Efficiency Variance: Labour efficiency variance = (Standard hours – Actual hours) x Standard price Labour efficiency variance = (5,500 – 5,600) x 9.00 Labour efficiency variance = (900) (Unfavourable) Computation of Factory Overhead Rate: Fixed factory overhead rate (8,000/10,000) Rs.0.80 Variable factory overhead rate (5,000/10,000) Rs.0.50

Factory overhead rate Rs.1.30

Computation of Factory Overhead Controllable Variance: Actual factory overhead (8,000 + 4,800) 12,800 Less: Budgeted allowance based on standard output: Fixed factory overhead budgeted 8,000 Variable factory overhead (10,000 x 0.50) 5,000

Budgeted allowance based on standard output (13,000)

Factory overhead controllable variance (Favourable) Rs.200

Computation of Volume Variance: Budgeted allowance based on standard output 13,000 Less: Applied factory overhead for actual output (9,000 x 1.30) (11,700)

Factory overhead volume variance (Unfavourable) Rs.1,300

SOLUTION 5 (b) Computation of Conversion Cost in Work – in – Process Ending Inventory: Work – in – process ending inventory 110,000 Less: Raw material (32,000)

Conversion cost Rs.78,000

Direct labour : Factory overhead

100% : 50% 2 : 1

Computation of Direct Labour Cost in Work – in – Process Ending Inventory: Direct labour cost (work – in – process ending) = Conversion cost x 2/3 Direct labour cost (work – in – process ending) = 78,000 x 2/3 Direct labour cost (work – in – process ending) = Rs.52,000 Computation of Factory Overhead Cost in Work – in – Process Ending Inventory: Factory overhead cost (work – in – process ending) = Conversion cost x 1/3 Factory overhead cost (work – in – process ending) = 78,000 x 1/3 Factory overhead cost (work – in – process ending) = Rs.26,000

Q.No.6 LABOUR COSTING Mr. Akbar is working 8 hours a day and 5 days a week under straight piecework plan in Feroz Microchip Company Ltd. The normal rate per hour is Rs.450 and the standard time is 20 seconds per unit. The daily production of Mr. Akbar during the week is as under:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday 1,400 1,450 1,480 1,500 1,490

REQUIRED Calculate earnings of Mr. Akbar for the week. SOLUTION 6 Computation of Piece Rate per Unit: Standard time per unit = 20 seconds. Therefore 3 units produced in 1 minute. Units produced per hour = 3 x 60 = 180 units per hour

Piece rate per unit = Rate per hour

Units per hour

Piece rate per unit = 450
