Variable manufacturing overhead Assignment | College Homework Help

Pottery Ranch Inc. has been manufacturing its own finials for its curtain rods. The company is currently operating at 100% of capacity, and variable manufacturing overhead is charged to production at the rate of 69% of direct labor cost. The direct materials and direct labor cost per unit to make a pair of finials are $4 and $5, respectively. Normal production is 25,400 curtain rods per year.

A supplier offers to make a pair of finials at a price of $13.30 per unit. If Pottery Ranch accepts the supplier’s offer, all variable manufacturing costs will be eliminated, but the $40,400 of fixed manufacturing overhead currently being charged to the finials will have to be absorbed by other products.
