For Eckert Inc., variable manufacturing overhead costs are expected to be $20,000 in the first quarter of 2011, with $4,000 increments in each of the remaining three quarters. Fixed overhead costs are estimated to be $35,000 in each quarter. Prepare the manufacturing overhead budget by quarters and in total for the year.
Cawley Company's Small Motor Division manufactures a number of small motors used in household and office appliances. The Household Division of Cawley then assembles and packages such items as blenders and juicers. Both divisions are free to buy and sell any of their components internally or externally. The following costs relate to small motor LN233 on a per unit basis.
Fixed cost per unit $ 5
Variable cost per unit $ 8
Selling price per unit $30
