Digital Controls makes electronic thermostats for homes and offices. The Augusta division makes one product, Autotherm, which has a standard cost of $35, consisting of $18 of materials and $17 of conversion costs. In January, actual purchases of materials totaled $84,000,
labor payroll costs were $15,000, and manufacturing overhead was $41,000. Completed output was 4,000 units. The Augusta division uses a backflush-costing system that records costs in materials inventory and conversion costs accounts and applies costs to products at the
time production is completed. There were no finished-goods inventories on January 1 and 80 units on January 31.
Read the requirements.
Requirement 1. Prepare journal entries (without explanations) to record January's costs for the Augusta division. Include the purchase of materials, incurrence of labor and manufacturing overhead costs, application of product costs, and recognition of cost of goods sold. (Record
debits first, then credits. Explanations are not required.)
Begin by recording the purchase of materials. Assume the purchase was made on account.
