# Calculating Inventory

Finlon Upholstery Inc. uses a job-order costing system to accumulate manufacturing costs. The company’s work-in-process on December 31, 2001, consisted of one job (no. 2077), which was carried on the year-end balance sheet at \$156,800. There was no finished-goods inventory on this date.

Finlon applies manufacturing overhead to production on the basis of direct-labor cost. (The budgeted direct-labor cost is the company’s practical capacity, in terms of direct-labor hours multiplied by the budgeted direct-labor rate.) Budgeted totals for 2002 for direct labor and manufacturing overhead are \$4,200,000 and \$5,460,000, respectively. Actual results for the year are as follows:

 Actual Results Direct Materials Used \$5,600,000.00 Direct Labor \$4,350,000.00 Indirect Material Used \$65,000.00 Indirect Labor \$2,860,000.00 Factory Depreciation \$1,740,000.00 Factory Insurance \$59,000.00 Factory Utilities \$830,000.00 Selling and Administrative Expenses \$2,160,000.00 Total \$17,664,000.00

Job no. 2077 was completed in January 2002, and there was no work in process at year-end. All jobs produced during 2002 were sold with the exception of Job no. 2143, which contained direct-material costs of \$156,000 and direct-labor charges of \$85,000. The company charges any under- or over-applied overhead to the cost of goods sold category.

Using the above information, do the following:

• Calculate the company’s predetermined overhead application rate.
• Calculate the additions to the work-in-process inventory account for the direct material used, direct labor, and manufacturing overhead.
• Calculate the finished-goods inventory for the 12/31/01 balance sheet.
• Calculate the over-applied or under-applied overhead at year-end.
• Explain if it is appropriate to include selling and administrative expenses in the cost of goods sold category.
