Illustration #1: Variable Costing (P = S) Assume unit Sales equals 400,000 @ $5/unit Assume unit Production is 400,000 units with the following production costs: DM, DL AND V(MFG) OH = $ 1.25/UNIT VC (SG&A) = $ 1.00/UNIT FIXED MANUFACTURING =$ 100,000 FIXED SG&A =$ 250,000

First, calculate the per unit product cost using each method of reporting. This is determined as follows (When unit production is 400,000 units): Absorption Costing Variable Costing Direct materials, direct labor, and variable mfg. overhead 1.25 $ 1.25 $ Fixed mfg. Overhead (absorption only) ($100,000 ÷ units produced) 0.25 $ - $ Unit product cost 1.50 $ 1.25 $ @ $5.00 /unit Assume unit Production is 400,000 units with the following production costs: DM, DL, and V(MFG) OH = $1.25 / unit VC of S,G,&A = $1.00 / unit Fixed Manufacturing Cost = $100,000 Fixed S,G,&A = $250,000

Remember, Selling and administrative expenses (BOTH FIXED AND VARIABLE) are always treated as period expenses (never as product costs, regardless of the approach taken) and deducted from revenue at the time incurred. Also remember that Fixed Manufacturing Overhead costs are treated as a product cost when using the Absorption Costing method, and as a period cost when using the Direct/variable Costing method.
