Calculating Inventory

Finlon Upholstery Inc. uses a job­order costing system to accumulate manufacturing costs. The

carried on the year­end balance sheet at $156,800. There was no finished­goods inventory on this


Finlon applies manufacturing overhead to production on the basis of direct­labor cost. (The budgeted

direct­labor cost is the company’s practical capacity, in terms of direct­labor hours multiplied by the

budgeted direct­labor 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

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 year­end. All jobs

produced during 2002 were sold with the exception of Job no. 2143, which contained direct­material

costs of $156,000 and direct­labor charges of $85,000. The company charges any under­ or overapplied

overhead to the cost of goods sold category.
