KLP provides consulting services and uses a job-order system to accumulate the cost of client projects. Traceable costs are charged directly to individual clients; in contrast, other costs incurred by KLP, but not identifiable with specific clients, are chraged to jobs using a predetermined overhead application rate. Clients are billed for directly chargeable costs, overhead, and a markup.
KLP anticipateds the following costs for the upcoming year:
PERCENTAGE OF COST
Professional staff salaries $5,000,000 80%
Administrative support staff 600,000 50
Travel 200,000 80
Other Operating costs 200,000 20
