Cost Allocation and Activity-Based Costing

Objective 1

Identify three methods used for allocating factory overhead costs to products.

0

Product Costing

26-1

Most companies have accounting systems that trace revenues to individual product lines. In addition, they need to subtract the cost of manufacturing their product from revenues in order to determine the profit from sales. Determining the cost of the product is termed product costing.

Ruiz Company Illustration

Ruiz Company manufactures two products, snowmobiles and lawnmowers. Both products are manufactured in a single factory. There is \$1,600,000 of factory overhead budgeted for the period.

Ruiz Company plans to manufacture 1,000 units of each product. Assume snowmobiles and lawnmowers both require 10 direct labor hours per unit to manufacture.

The greatest advantage of the single plantwide overhead rate method is that it is simple and inexpensive to apply in practice.

Objective 3

Use multiple production department factory overhead rates for product costing.

Multiple Production Department Factory Overhead Rate Method

The multiple production department factory overhead rate method uses different rates for each production department to allocate factory overhead to products.

26-3

In general, the following conditions may indicate that a single plantwide factory overhead rate will lead to distorted product costs.

Condition 1: Differences in production department factory overhead rates. There are significant differences in the factory overhead rates across different production departments. That is, some departments have high rates, while others have low rates

0

26-3

Condition 2: Differences in the ratios of allocation-base usage. The products require different ratios of allocation base-usage across the departments.

Objective 4

Use activity-based costing for product costing.

Activity-Based Costing (ABC) Method

The activity-based costing (ABC) methodallocates factory overhead more accurately than does the multiple production department rate method.

0

26-4

Activity Cost Pools

The activity-based costingmethoduses cost of activities to determine product costs. Under this method, factory overhead costs are initially accounted for in activity cost pools.

Activity Rates

The activity cost pools are assigned to products, using factory overhead rates for each activity. These rates are often called activity rates.

0

26-4

Activity Base

Activity rates are determined by dividing the cost budgeted for each activity pool by the estimate activity base. This base is related to an activity pool.

Abacus Company Example

The selling and administrative expenses of Abacus Company are allocated to its two products, Ipso and Facto, on the basis of warranty claims. Abacus Company has a budgeted cost of \$150,000. One hundred warranty claims are estimated for the period.

Ipso had 10 warranty claims and Facto had 90 warranty claims. The field service activity would be allocated as follows:

Ipso: 10 warranty claims x \$1,500 per warranty claim = \$15,000

Facto:90 warranty claims x \$1,500 per warranty claim = \$135,000

Objective 6

Use activity-based costing in a service business.

0

Hopewell Hospital Example

26-6

Service businesses can use an activity-based costing system to determine how overhead is allocated to customers. The activity rate would be determined by dividing the budgeted activity cost pool by the estimated activity-base quantity, just as in a manufacturing firm.
