Moneyless Company has been using a standard absorption costing
system. Standard variable manufacturing costs are P6 per unit.
Standard fixed factory overhead is P1 per unit (P400,000 divided
400,000 units of normal activity). The sales price is P10 per
unit. Variable marketing and administrative costs are P2 per unit
sold. Fixed marketing and administrative costs are P250,000.
Beginning inventory in 2008 was 70,000 units; ending inventory
was 50,000 units. Variances from standard variable manufacturing
costs in 2008 totaled P30,000, unfavorable. All variances were
written-off directly as an adjustment to the cost of goods sold.
Sales in 2008 were 370,000 units.

AAA Company wishes to use direct costing in accounting for its only product, with
standard unit manufacturing costs as follows:
Materials 5 P
Direct labor 4
Variable factory overhead 3
P 12
The fixed factory overhead budget is P160,000 and normal capacity
is 80,000 units. During 2008, AAA’s first year of operations,
85,000 units were produced, of which 75,000 were sold at P25
each.
Actual costs were:
Materials used P 434,000

Variable factory overhead 250,000
Fixed factory overhead 162,000
Variable marketing and administrative expenses 75,000

VIII - Throughput Costing, Absorption Costing, Variable Costing
Coastal Corporation, which uses throughput costing, began
operations at the start of the current year. Planned and actual
production equaled 20,000 units, and sales totaled 17,500 units
at P95 per unit. Cost data for the year were as follows:
Direct materials (per unit) P 18
Conversion cost:
Direct labor 160,000
Variable manufacturing overhead 280,000
Fixed manufacturing overhead 340,000
Selling and administrative costs (total) 430,000
The company classifies direct materials as a throughput cost.
Required:
A. Compute the company's total cost for the year.
B. How much of this cost would be held in year-end inventory
under (1) absorption costing, (2) variable costing, and
(3) throughput costing?
C. How much of the company's total cost for the year would
appear on the period's income statement under (1)
absorption costing, (2) variable costing, and (3)
throughput costing?
D. Compute the year's throughput-costing net income.
Answer:
A. Direct materials (20,000 P 360,000
units x P18)
Direct labor 160,000
Variable manufacturing 280,000
overhead
Fixed manufacturing overhead 340,000
Selling and administrative 430,00
costs 0
Total P1,570,000

B. The year-end inventory of 2,500 units (20,000 - 17,500) is


costed as follows:

Absorption Variable Throughp


Costing Costing ut

Direct materials P 360,000 P360,000 P360,000
Direct labor 160,00 160,00

Variable manufacturing 280,00 280,00
overhead 0 0
Fixed manufacturing overhead 340,00

Total product cost P1,140,000 P800,000 P360,000
Cost per unit (Total ÷ P57 P40 P18
20,000 units)
Year-end inventory (2,500
units x cost per unit) P 142,500 P100,000 P45,000

C. The total costs would be allocated between the current


period's income statement and the year-end inventory on the
balance sheet. Thus:
Absorption costing: P1,570,000 - P142,500 = P1,427,500
Variable costing: P1,570,000 - P100,000 = P1,470,000
Throughput costing: P1,570,000 - P45,000 = P1,525,000

D. Throughput income: Sales revenue (17,500 units x P95) –


P1,525,000 = P137,500

IX - Throughput Costing
Krell Corporation, which uses throughput costing, began operations at
the start of the current year (20x1). Planned and actual production
equaled 40,000 units, and sales totaled 35,000 units at P80 per unit.
Cost data for 20x1 were as follows:

Direct materials (per unit) P 20


Conversion cost:
Direct labor 215,000
Variable manufacturing overhead 340,000
Fixed manufacturing overhead 528,000
Selling and administrative costs:
Variable (per unit)
8
Fixed 220,000

The company classifies direct materials as a throughput cost.


Required:
A. What is meant by the term "throughput costing"?
B. Compute the cost of the company's year-end inventory.
C. Prepare Krell's income statement for the year.
Answer:
A. Throughput costing is a technique that assigns only the unit-level
spending amounts for direct costs as the cost of products or
services. In this case, direct materials is the only item that
qualifies as a throughput cost.
B. Ending inventory: 0 + 40,000 units - 35,000 units = 5,000 units;
5,000 units x $20 = $100,000
C. Krell Corporation
