Appendix 12A, Transfer Pricing True / False Questions 1. When a dispute arises over a transfer price, top managers should intervene to keep divisional managers from making a costly mistake, even though the divisions are evaluated as profit centers. True False 2. One advantage of using actual cost incurred as the transfer price is that it provides a strong incentive for the producing division to control its costs. True False 3. A division of a company has idle capacity and produces a part that has a variable cost of $52 per unit and a full (absorption) cost of $87. Another division of the same company uses such a part in one of its products and it can buy an identical part from an outside supplier for $81 per unit. The company will be worse off if the latter division decides to buy exclusively from the outside supplier than if the part is made inside the company and transferred from one division to the other. True False Multiple Choice Questions 4. Managers sometimes do not act in ways that are in the best interests of the overall company. What is the term for this? A. Strategic approach B. Suboptimization C. Optimal motivation D. Responsibility accounting 12A-3
