Question 1 (20 marks – 36 minutes)
Part A (10 marks)
Atkinson Technologies has determined that a single overhead application rate no longer results in a reasonable allocation of overhead to its diverse products. Accordingly, the company has restructured its overhead application. It has established six cost pools and identified appropriate cost drivers. The new cost pools, allocation bases, and rates are as follows: Cost Pool
Application Rate
Setup costs
$70 per setup
Machine costs
30 per machine hour
Labour-related costs
15 per direct labour hour
Material handling costs
2 per kilogram of material received
Quality costs
150 per customer return
Other costs
8 per machine hour
During 2006, the company experienced the following volume for each cost application base:
Setups
300
Machine hours
9,000
Direct labour hours
8,000
Kilograms of material received
100,000
Customer returns
250
Required:
a.
Determine the amount of overhead applied in 2006.
b.
Assume that the company incurred $740,000 in actual overhead costs in 2006.
Compute the company’s underapplied or overapplied overhead.
c.
Prepare the journal entries to records the inderapplied or overapplied overhead.

Question 1
Part B (10 marks)
Newmarket Cosmetic Hospital is under increasing pressure for the charges it assesses its patients. Except for an explicit consideration of direct costs for surgery, medication, and other treatments, the current pricing system is an ad hoc one based on pricing norms for the geographical area. As the hospital controller, you have suggested that pricing would be less arbitrary if there were a tighter relationship between costs and patient charges. As a first step, you have determined that most costs can be assigned to one of the following three cost pools.
Cost Pool
