1. Flexible Budgets and Overhead Analysis Chapter Eleven

2. Learning Objective 1 Prepare a flexiblebudget and explain the advantages of the flexible budget approach over the static budget approach.

3. Hmm! Comparingstatic budgets withactual costs is likecomparing applesand oranges. Static Budgets and Performance Reports Static budgetsare prepared fora single, plannedlevelof activity. Performance evaluation is difficult when actual activity differs from the planned level of activity.

4. May be prepared for any activity level in the relevant range. Show costs that should have beenincurred at the actual level ofactivity, enabling “apples to apples”cost comparisons. Reveal variances related tocost control. Improve performance evaluation. Let’s look at CheeseCo. Flexible Budgets

5. U = Unfavorable variance CheeseCo was unable to achieve the budgeted level of activity. Static Budgets and Performance Reports CheeseCo

6. Static Budgets and Performance Reports CheeseCo F = Favorable variance that occurs when actual costs are less than budgeted costs.

7. Static Budgets and Performance Reports CheeseCo Since cost variances are favorable, havewe done a good job controlling costs?

8. I don’t think Ican answer thequestion usinga static budget. Actual activity is belowbudgeted activity. So, shouldn’t variable costsbe lower if actual activityis lower? Static Budgets and Performance Reports

9. Static Budgets and Performance Reports • The relevant question is . . . “How much of the favorable cost variance is due to lower activity, and how much is due to good cost control?” • To answer the question,we mustthe budget to theactual level of activity.

10. Preparing a Flexible Budget To a budget we need to know that: • Total variablecosts changein direct proportion to changes in activity. • Total fixedcosts remainunchanged within therelevant range. Variable Fixed

11. Preparing a Flexible Budget Let’s prepare budgets for CheeseCo.

12. Variable costs are expressed as a constant amount per hour. \$40,000 ÷ 10,000 hours is\$4.00 per hour. Fixed costs areexpressed as atotal amount. Preparing a Flexible Budget CheeseCo

13. \$4.00 per hour × 8,000 hours = \$32,000 Preparing a Flexible Budget CheeseCo

15. Total fixed costsdo not change inthe relevant range. Preparing a Flexible Budget CheeseCo

16. Quick Check  What should be the total overhead costs for the Flexible Budget at 12,000 hours? a. \$92,500. b. \$89,000. c. \$106,800. d. \$104,000.

17. Quick Check  What should be the total overhead costs for the Flexible Budget at 12,000 hours? a. \$92,500. b. \$89,000. c. \$106,800. d. \$104,000. Total overhead cost = \$14,000 + \$7.50 per hour  12,000 hours = \$14,000 + \$90,000 = \$104,000

18. Preparing a Flexible Budget

19. Learning Objective 2 Prepare a performance report for both variable and fixed overhead costs using the flexible budget approach.

20. Flexible Budget Performance Report Let’s prepare abudget performance report for CheeseCo.

21. Flexible budget is prepared for thesame activity level (8,000 hours) as actually achieved. Flexible Budget Performance Report CheeseCo

22. Quick Check  What is the variance for indirect labor when the flexible budget for 8,000 hours is compared to the actual results? a. \$2,000 U b. \$2,000 F c. \$6,000 U d. \$6,000 F

23. Quick Check  What is the variance for indirect labor when the flexible budget for 8,000 hours is compared to the actual results? a. \$2,000 U b. \$2,000 F c. \$6,000 U d. \$6,000 F

24. Quick Check  What is the variance for indirect material when the flexible budget for 8,000 hours is compared to the actual results? a. \$1,500 U b. \$1,500 F c. \$4,500 U d. \$4,500 F

25. Quick Check  What is the variance for indirect material when the flexible budget for 8,000 hours is compared to the actual results? a. \$1,500 U b. \$1,500 F c. \$4,500 U d. \$4,500 F

26. Flexible Budget Performance Report Remember the question: “How much of the total variance is due to lower activity and how much isdue to cost control?”

27. How much of the \$11,650 favorable variance is due to lower activity and how much is due to cost control? Static Budgets and Performance

28. Difference between original static budgetand actual overhead = \$11,650 F. Flexible Budget Performance Report Overhead Variance Analysis Let’s place the flexible budget for 8,000 hours here.

29. Activity Cost control This \$15,000F variance is due to lower activity. This \$3,350Uvariance is dueto poor cost control. Flexible Budget Performance Report Overhead Variance Analysis

30. Activity base andvariable overheadshould becausally related. Activity base shouldbe simple andeasily understood. Activity base shouldnot be expressedin dollars orother currency. The Measure of Activity– A Critical Choice Three importantfactors in selecting anactivity base for an overheadflexible budget

31. Only a spendingvariance can becomputed. Both spendingand efficiencyvariances can be computed. Variable Overhead Variances –A Closer Look If flexible budgetis based onactual hours If flexible budgetis based onstandard hours

32. Variable Overhead Variances – Example ColaCo’s actual production for the period required 3,200 standard machine hours. Actual variable overhead incurred for the period was \$6,740. Actual machine hours worked were 3,300. The standard variable overhead cost per machine hour is \$2.00. Compute the variable overhead spending variance first using actual hours. Then use standard hours allowed to calculate the variable overheadefficiency variance.

33. Learning Objective 3 Use a flexible budgetto prepare a variable overhead performance report containing onlya spending variance.

34. Variable Overhead Variances Actual Flexible Budget Variable for Variable Overhead Overhead at Incurred Actual Hours AH × AR AH × SR AH = Actual hoursAR = Actual variable overhead rateSR = Standard variable overhead rate Spending Variance Spending variance = AH(AR – SR)

35. Variable Overhead Variances – Example Actual Flexible Budget Variable for Variable Overhead Overhead at Incurred Actual Hours 3,300 hours×\$2.00 per hour= \$6,600 \$6,740 Spending Variance= \$140 unfavorable

36. Spending Variance Variable Overhead Variances –A Closer Look Results from paying moreor less than expected foroverhead items and from excessive usage ofoverhead items. Now, let’s use the standard hours allowed, along with the actual hours, to compute the efficiency variance.

37. Learning Objective 4 Use a flexible budgetto prepare a variable overhead performance report containing both a spending and an efficiency variance.

38. Variable Overhead Variances Actual Flexible Budget Flexible Budget Variable for Variable for Variable Overhead Overhead at Overhead at Incurred Actual Hours Standard Hours AH × AR AH × SR SH × SR Spending Variance EfficiencyVariance Spending variance = AH(AR - SR) Efficiency variance = SR(AH - SH)

46. Activity-based Costingand the Flexible Budget It is unlikely that allvariable overhead will bedriven by a single activity. Activity-based costingcan be used when multipleactivity bases drivevariable overhead costs.
