MSU ACC 202—Kattelus Course Notes—CH 3—Spring 2009 APPLICATION OF OVERHEAD In a job-order costing system, the cost of a job consists of: 1. Actual direct material costs traced to the job. 2. Actual direct labor costs traced to the job. 3. Manufacturing overhead applied to the job using a predetermined overhead rate. Actual overhead costs are not assigned to jobs. A predetermined overhead rate is used to assign overhead cost to products and services. It is: Based on estimated data. Established before the period begins. Why Use Estimated Data? Waiting until the year is over to determine actual overhead costs would be too late. Managers want cost data immediately. Overhead rates, if based on actual costs and activity, would vary substantially from month to month. Much of this variation would be due to random changes in activity.
