Actual Direct Materials Cost and Direct Labor Cost are easily applied to Job as work is performed. However, actual Overhead Cost is not known until the end of the accounting period, so overhead is applied to the job using Predetermined Overhead Rates. Normal Costing Normal Costing

ChampCo’s actual overhead for the actual year was $650,000 and a total of 170,000 machine hours were worked. 170,000 If ChampCo’s predetermined overhead If rate was $4.00 per machine hour, how much overhead was applied to all of applied ChampCo’s jobs during the year? Overhead Application Example
ChampCo’s actual overhead for the year was $650,000 and actual a total of 170,000 machine total hours were worked. SOLUTION
Applied Overhead = PDR × Actual Machine Hours Applied Overhead = $4.00 per MH × 170,000 MH = $680,000 ChampCo has overapplied overhead for the year by $30,000. Accounting for Overhead This difference will be eliminated in the This end-of-period adjusting entry process, using one of three possible methods using The choice of method should be based on The such issues as materiality, consistency, and industry practice and Three Methods for Adjusting the Over/ Underapplied Overhead Adjusted Allocation Rate Approach – all allocations are recalculated with the actual, exact allocation rate exact Proration Approach – the difference is allocated between Cost of Goods Sold, Work-in-Process, and Finished Goods based on their relative sizes (0r the overhead in the accounts) (0r Write-Off Approach – the difference is simply written off to Cost of Goods Sold written Over Applied and Under Applied Manufacturing Overhead
$30,000 may be allocated to these accounts. $30,000 may be assigned directly to cost of goods sold. OR

Unadjusted Balance ChampCo’s Mfg. Overhead
Actual Overhead overhead Applied costs to jobs $650,000 $30,000 $30,000 Adjusted Balance $680,000 Prorated overhead variances.
If the overhead variance is prorated to work in process, finished goods, and cost of goods sold, it is prorated according to the amount of overhead contained in those accounts for the period. Assume that, at the end of the year, ChampCo has the following overhead in the unadjusted account balances: COGS: $50,000 F/G Inv: $35,000 WIP Inv: $15,000 Account Cost of Goods Sold Finished Goods W ork in Process Total Amount of Manufacturing Overhead in Account $ 50,000 35,000 15,000 $ 100,000 Allocation Fraction 50/100 35/100 15/100 100/100 × × Overhead Variance 30,000 = 30,000 = Prorated Variance 10,500 4,500 $ 30,000 × $ 30,000 = $ 15,000 After the adjustment, ChampCo would report: COGS: F/G Inv: WIP Inv: $50,000 - $15,000 = $35,000 $35,000 - $10,500 = $24,500 $15,000 - $ 4,500 = $10,500 Sevenstep Job Costing

Last method was most theoretically Last correct but if COGS is large relative to WIP and Finished Goods, and the variance is immaterial, the direct write-off method is justifiable. method Process Costing Environment: In continuous manufacturing environment, In unit costs are not tracked separately (difficult to define “a unit”).
– Instead production costs are accumulated Instead over a period of time (usually a month) and costs are determined by “amount” or “volume” produced. Process Costing Environment: The difficulty in this environment is determining The the value of work-in-process at the accounting period cutoff point.
– Managers need to estimate the percentage of Managers completion at each stage in the production process, and these percentages are used to assign a value to work-in-process inventory. work-in-process The manager also needs to make assumption The regarding when materials, labor and overhead enter into the production process. enter Process Costing Environment: Materials are often assumed to be added when Materials the process is started, with labor and overhead being applied uniformly until completion. However, most large process costing firms will refine these assumptions to arrive at more accurate inventory costs. accurate Further, cost flow assumptions (i.e., FIFO, LIFO, Further, average cost) must be chosen and applied to the process due to changing prices of input costs. process Batch Production Environment: A hybrid of the job cost and process cost hybrid environments. Costs are accumulated at the batch level (instead of the job level).
