A company currently absorbs production overheads based on labor hours. The overheads absorbed by the two products that are made, L and M, are $4 per unit and $10 per unit respectively. These were based on the budgeted overheads of $7,000 and budgeted labor hours of 1,750. The budgeted output was 500 units of each product.The company is investigating the use of activity based costing (ABC). Analysis has shown that the total production overheads of $7,000 are made up of $4,000 for set up costs and $3,000 for inspection costs. The cost driver for set up costs is the number of set ups and for inspection costs it is the number of inspections. The cost driver rate for set ups is $160 per set up. Product L would need 5 production runs. Both types of product would need 1 set up for each production run. Product L would need 2 inspections for each production run. Product M would need 1 inspection per production run. The products are made in the same department and use the same equipment and staff but they are produced separately. Which of the following statements are correct? Select ALL that apply.

A. The current production overhead absorption rate is $4.00 per hour.

B. The current production overhead absorption rate is $500 per hour.

C. If ABC was used, set up costs per unit of Product L would be $1.60.

D. If ABC was used, set up costs per unit of Product M would be $4.00.

E. If ABC was used, inspection costs per unit of Product L would be $4.00.

F. If ABC was used, inspection costs per unit of Product M would be $4.00.

Question # 2

A company is considering investing $680,000 in a machine to manufacture a new product. A consultant has been appointed to advise on the investment and the company is committed to paying $10,000 to the consultant in year 1, even if the project does not go ahead.300,000 units of the new product will be produced and sold each year. Unit cost and revenue information based on this level of output is as follows. 60% of the overhead cost is variable. Of the remainder, 10% consists of allocated head office overheads. The selling price will increase by 2% each year in line with inflation, beginning in year 2. Fixed price contracts mean that all unit costs will remain unaltered. Taxation information: • 100% first year allowance will be available for the purchase of the machinery. • The taxation rate is 30% of taxable profits, payable in the year after that in which the liability arises.
