Example 24

(a)   Prepare an overhead analysis sheet showing the allocation and apportionment of
      overhead costs to cost centres.

(b)   Using appropriate bases, re-apportion the service cost centres’ overheads to production
      cost centres, applying the repeated distribution and commencing with the canteen.

(c)   Calculate an appropriate overhead absorption rate for each production cost centre (to 2
      decimal places).

(d)   Distinguish between the terms allocation and apportionment in the context of accounting
      for overhead, giving an example of each from the question.

      Allocation: overheads are charged to specific cost centre without sharing with other departments
      (cost centres). Examples of allocated costs are supervisors’ salaries

      Apportionment: overheads are shared between two or more cost centres. Basis of apportionment
      has to be determined. Examples of apportioned costs are maintenance wages, lighting and heating
      costs.

Calculate the budgeted overhead absorption rates for each production department using the
following methods.

(a)    A machine hour rate in the weaving department

(b)    A direct labour hour rate on the proofing department

(c)    Another suitable method in the finishing department

It may be assumed that the equipment maintenance department does not service the personnel services
department. All workings and assumptions should be clearly shown.

Short Questions

Q1:   It is possible for an item of overhead expenditure to be shared amongst many departments.

      It is also possible that this same item may relate to just one specific department.

      If the item was charged specifically to a single department this would be an example of:

      A     Apportionment                                C      Re-apportionment

      B     Allocation                                   D      Absorption


Q2:   A method of dealing with overheads involves spreading common costs over cost centres on the
      basis of benefit received. This is known as:

      A     Overhead Absorption                          C      Overhead Apportionment

      B     Overhead Allocation                          D      Overhead Analysis


Q3:   A company is considering the following methods for apportioning heating and lighting costs to its
      various departments:

      1     The relative floor areas of departments

      2     The relative cubic capacity (volume) of departments

      3     The relative usage ascertained from meters

      Which of the above would be acceptable?

      A     Method 1 and 2 only                          C      Method 2 and 3 only

      B     Method 1 and 3 only                          D      Method 1, 2 and 3


Q4:   The following extract of information is available concerning the four cost centres of EG Limited.

      The overhead cost of the canteen if to be re-apportioned to the production cost centres on the
      basis of the number of employees in each production cost centre.

      After the re-apportionment, the total overhead cost of the packing department, to the
      nearest $, will be:

      A     $1,200                                       C      $10,080

      B     $9,968                                       D      $10,160

Q5:   The management accountant of Gympie Limited has already allocated and apportioned the fixed
      overheads for the period although she has yet to reapportion the service centre costs. Information

      What are the total overheads included in production department 1 if the reciprocal
      method is used to reapportion service centre costs?

Q8:   A factory consists of two production cost centres (G and H) and two service cost centres (J and
      K). The total overheads allocated and apportioned to each centre are as follows:

                 G                       H                              J                                 K

      The work done by the service cost centres can be represented as follows:
                                                             G                   H                 J                K

      The company apportions service cost centre costs to production cost centres using a method that
      fully recognises any work done by one service cost centre for another.

Overheads Absorption: Over/ Under Absorption of overheads…

~ Overheads incurred for a period of time. It is time related (period costs).
   the actual overheads incurred will only be known or determined at the end of the period.

~ However, evaluation of cost units (calculation of cost/ unit) is an on-going process throughout the
  period.
   predetermined overhead absorption rates are required in advance of the period using
  estimated or budgeted figures for overhead and for the number of units of the absorption base.

~ During the period:

  Cost per unit:         Direct materials cost                                                         X

      2     machine hours                               4    per unit

      A     method 1 and 2 only                         C    method 1, 2, 3 or 4

      B     method 3 and 4 only                         D    method 1, 2 or 3 only


Q4:   An overhead absorption rate is used to:

      A     Share out common costs over benefiting cost centres (allo)

      B     Find the total overheads for a cost centre (allo+app+re-app)

      C     Charge overheads to product

      D     Control overheads


Q5:   Over-absorbed overheads occur when:

      A     Absorbed overheads exceed actual overheads

      B     Absorbed overheads exceed budgeted overheads

      C     Actual overheads exceed budgeted overheads

Q7:    In a given year a production department incurred actual overheads of $178,000. Overheads are
       absorbed using actual machine hours and pre-determined rate per hour. The budgeted overhead
       for the year was $180,000 and the budgeted machine hours were 90,000. The overheads for the

Q15:   A company uses absorption costing. In a period, 34,000 units of the company’s single product
       were manufactured and 33,000 units were sold.

       Consider the following two statements:

       1.    Fixed production overheads would be over-absorbed.

       2.    Profit would be higher than in the previous period.

       Are the statements true in relation to the situation described or is it not possible to
       determine whether or not they are true?
