Note: This question might be less challenging if you use the matrix as
show on the next page. Start by filling in all the numbers you know, and
then break each one into its components using the information from the
standard cost card. This works well for materials and labour, but is less
effective for overhead variances.

## Budgeted fixed overhead is \$135,000 0.20 = \$27,000

Budgeted variable overhead is \$135,000 0.80 = \$108,000
The fixed overhead rate is \$27,000 (9,000 2) = \$1.50/hour

## Variable overhead efficiency variance:

Because overhead is applied using direct labour hours, the standard
quantity for variable overhead efficiency variance will be the same as
for direct labour hours. The labour quantity variance is \$1,000 and the
rate was \$5.00 per hour; this represents 200 standard hours (\$1,000
\$5.00 per hour). The variable overhead efficiency variance = 200 hours
VOH rate. The VOH rate = \$9,500 10,000 hours or \$0.95 per direct
labour hour.

## Variable overhead spending variance:

Total variable overhead variance is represented by over- or underapplied overhead. Spending variance = under-applied overhead
