Logan Products computes its predetermined overhead rate annually on the basis of direct labor-hours. At the beginning of the year, it estimated that 38,000 direct labor-hours would be required for the period’s estimated level of production. The company also estimated $567,000 of fixed manufacturing overhead expenses for the coming period and variable manufacturing overhead of $4.00 per direct labor-hour. Logan’s actual manufacturing overhead for the year was $788,136 and its actual total direct labor was 38,500 hours.

Required:
Compute the company’s predetermined overhead rate for the year. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

  • accounting -

    Y= a + bx
    y= 567,000 + (4.00* 38,000)
    y= 567,000 + 152,000
    y= 719,000 estimated manufacturing overhead

    Predetermined overhead rate= estimated manufacturing overhead/ estimated allocation base

    POR= 719,000/38,000
    POR= $18.92 per direct labor hour

  • accounting -

    4 X 38000 =152000
    567000 + 152000/38000= 18.92
