EXAMPLE 1 - Drop product line: retailer The owner’s analysis incorrectly includes the following allocated costs that will be incurred regardless of whether the ice-cream counter is operated: Utilities Depreciation of building $2900 4000 Deli manager’s salary 3000 Total $9900 It is possible that closing the ice cream counter might save a portion of the utility cost, but that is doubtful. A better analysis follows: Sales $45 000 Less: Cost of food 20 000 Gross profit 25 000 Less: Operating expenses Wages of counter staff $12 000 Paper products 4 000 Depreciation of counter equipment and furnishings* 2 500 Total 18 500 Profit on ice cream counter $ 6 500 * Depreciation on the counter equipment and furnishings is included because it is traceable to the ice-cream operation and is an expense in the determination of profit. If a cash-flow analysis is desired, this non-cash expense should be excluded.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
