Marks: 80
Question No: 1 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
Brutus Company manufactures glass bottles. The company expects to sell
500,000 bottles next year. The budgeted ending inventory this year is 15,000
bottles and the desired ending inventory for next year is 12,000 bottles. It takes 5
pounds of sand to produce one bottle. The ending inventory of sand this year is
expected to be 200,000 pounds, and the desired ending inventory next year is
100,000 pounds. The amount of direct material purchases is expected to be:

2,385,000 pounds
2,465,000 pounds
2,585,000 pounds
2,600,000 pounds

SOLUTION
SALES+DESIRED ENDING INVENTORY – EXPECTEC ENDING INVENTORY * PRICE PER UNIT
500000 + 12000 – 15000* 5
PROPOSAL BUDGET = 2485000

PROPOSAL BUDGET +DESIRED ENDING INVENTORY+EXPECTED ENDING INVENTORY
2485000+100000-200000
DIRECT MATERIAL PURCHASE = 2385000

The following data is available for the Bricks Company:
Particulars Rs.
Freight in 20,000
Purchases return and allowances 80,000
Marketing expenses 200,000
Finished goods Inventory, ending 90,000
Cost of goods sold 700% of marketing expenses
You are required to calculate the cost of goods available for sales if Gross Profit
is 50% of cost of goods sold.

Rs. 1,390,000

COST OF GOODS AVAILABLE FOR SALE = CGS +ENDING FINISHED GOODS
= 1400000 +90000
= 1490000

Terrell, Inc. sells a single product at a selling price of Rs. 40 per unit. Variable

Question No: 45 ( Marks: 10 )
There are some common types of costs which you will meet when evaluating
different decisions are incremental, non-incremental, spare capacity, opportunity,
sunk costs. Are these likely to be relevant or non-relevant?

Incremental costs
An incremental cost can be defined as a cost which is specifically incurred by following a course of action and which is avoidable if such action is not taken. Incremental costs are, by definition, relevant costs because they are directly affected by the decision

Non incremental cost
These are costs, which will not be affected by the decision at hand. Non-incremental costs are non-relevant costs because they are not related to the decision at hand (i.e. non-incremental costs stay the same no matter what decision is taken).

Spare capacity costs
Because of the recent advancements in manufacturing technology most enterprises have greatly increased their efficiency and as a result are often operating at below full capacity. Operating with spare capacity can have a significant impact on the relevant costs for any short-term production decision the management of such an enterprise might have to make.

If spare capacity exists in an enterprise, some costs which are generally considered incremental may in fact be non-incremental and thus, non-relevant, in the short-term.

Opportunity costs
An opportunity cost is a level of profit or benefit foregone by the pursuit of a particular course of action. In other words, it is the value of an option, which cannot be taken as a result of following a different option.
Opportunity costs are relevant costs for a decision only when they exceed the costs of the same item in the option to the decision under consideration

Sunk cost
A sunk cost is a cost that the already been incurred and cannot be altered by any future decision. If sunk costs are not affected by a decision then they must be non-relevant costs for decision making purposes.
Sunk costs are the opposite of opportunity costs in that they are not incorporated in the decision making process even though they have already been recorded in the books and records of the enterprise

Ali Company produces and sells Amrat Cola to retailers. The Cola is bottled in 2-litter plastic bottles. The estimated budgeted sales for the year 2009 would be Rs. 360,000 and the estimated Profit for the year 2009 would be Rs 10,000.
The Margin of safety Ratio is calculated as 20%.

Required: Breakeven Sales for the year 2009

PROFIT / MOS RATIO = CONTRIBUTION MARGIN
10000 /  .2                  =                     50,000
C/S RATIO = CM /SALES *100
= 50000 / 360000*100
= 13.88%
(IN CASE OF BREAK EVEN SALES = CONTRIBUTION MARGIN EQUAL TO FIXED COST)
BE SALES = FIXED COST /C/S RATIO
= 40000 / 13.8889
287,999

OR
MOS RATIO = MOS / BUDGETED SALES
MOS = BUDGETED SALES * MOS RATIO
MOS = 360,000 * 20% = 72,000

MOS = budgeted sales – break even sales
Break even sales = Budgeted sales – MOS
= 360,000 – 72,000 = 288,000

The management of Franco Corporation is concerned about department B, which showed a loss of Rs. 1,300 last quarter. You have been asked to prepare an analysis that will help management to decide whether to discontinue the department. Below is the Franco’s Income Statement for last quarter:

Department A   Department B   Total
Sales (Rs)   260,000   130000   390,000
Variable Cost (Rs)   156,000   117000   273,000
Contribution margin   104,000   13,000   117,000
Less: Fixed Costs:
Separable (Rs)   11,300   5700   17,000
Joint (Rs)   17,400   8600   26,000
Total   28,700   14300   43,000
Profit (Loss) (Rs)   75,300   (1,300)   74,000

Showing all calculations, determine the effect of closing department B on Franco Corporation and make a recommendation.
ANALYSIS
If we discontinue the department “b” than the loss will be as follows
13,000 +1,300 = 14,300
Department “b” must be continued because fixed cost equal to Rs.13, 000 is being covered and loss is only rs.1300 other wise if we discontinue the loss will be equal to Rs.14, 300
