total absorption costing (TAC) definition
total cost of producing a unit, including share of all OHD (fixed + variable) relating to production of that unit
1 of 58
overhead cost definition
costs not directly attributable to cost units (any type of cost)
2 of 58
why is absorbing fixed OH into products done ?
inventory valuation and making pricing decisions
3 of 58
4 methods of fair absorption costing
1) % of prime cost 2) % of direct labour cost 3) % of direct material cost 4) OH cost per labour hour
4 of 58
FOAR equation
.
5 of 58
what do you do with absorbed OHD (actual production)?
(actual base X previous FOAR) charge to profit as expense (SoCI t account)
6 of 58
what do you do with incurred OHD (what you actually pay)?
(full value) adjust the profit
7 of 58
departmental absorption 2 steps
1) calculate FOAR for each department 2) calculate OHD to be absorbed by each product
8 of 58
if asked for product cost what 3 things do you need to include?
1) material cost 2) labour cost (wages) 3) total OH cost
9 of 58
under absorption
reduces profit
10 of 58
over absorption
increases profit
11 of 58
2 types of production OHD
1) OHD that arise solely in department (supervisor) 2) OHD that are factory wide (rent/ heating)
12 of 58
allocation and appointment of OHDs 7 stages
1)identify production+service dep 2)identify total fixed OHD (leave out direct) 3)allocate fixed OHD 4)apportion remaining on best basis 5)reapportion service to production 6)find production FOAR 7)absorb fixed OHD into products (TAC)
13 of 58
TAC 3 advantages
1) all costs of production included 2) conforms to requirements of SSAP 9 (guidance on accounting treatment of stocks+long term contracts) 3) useful in cost plus pricing
14 of 58
TAC 5 disadvantages
1) estimates required in apportion+reapportion 2) decisions on changing levels of activity not correct 3) profit depends on changes in inv levels=misleading 4) more complicated 5) poss incorrect pricing decisions on incremental business
15 of 58
Marginal costing definition
only variable costs (no fixed costs) charged as COS, fixed costs just w/off on total against contribution for period
16 of 58
Marginal costing profit equation
.
17 of 58
MC 5 advantages
1) VC easily identified (no estimate) 2) profit isn't affected by changing inv levels 3) w/off FC in period occurred reflects reality 4) used for short term decisions on output 5) easier to understand
18 of 58
MC 3 disadvantages
1) if use for decisions, may fail to recover fixed OH 2) in long term all costs variable 3) cannot use for valuing inv in financial accounts

working with a constraint 2 aims
1) whats best use for limited resource 2) how can we maximise the profit
22 of 58
working with a constraint 7 steps
1) contn/unit 2) limiting factor (what we need/what we have) 3) contn/limiting factor 4) rank 5) production plan 6) total contn 7) total profit (use equation remember FC ARE FIXED!!)
23 of 58
contn/limiting factor equation

further aspects of NPV analysis: capital rationing definition
arises when organisations are restricted in money available for investment and finds itself unable to invest in all worthwhile projects (+ve NPV)
25 of 58
further aspects of NPV analysis: capital rationing 2 types
1) hard/external capital rationing (people won't lend you money) 2) soft/internal capital rationing (you don't want to borrow money)
26 of 58
further aspects of NPV analysis: capital rationing 3 other reasons
1) way of getting people to compete for best project to get capital 2) organisation can't cope with change of doing so many projects 3) don't want to give away control (equity/debt)
27 of 58
further aspects of NPV analysis: divisible projects
either whole project or fraction of project undertaken/ linear returns on investments made
28 of 58
further aspects of NPV analysis: indivisible projects
either whole project undertaken or not at all
29 of 58
further aspects of NPV analysis: divisible projects single period 4 stages
1) NPV of each project 2) work out per £ of investment (year 0) 3) rank 4) decide which project make most NPV using capped amount of capital (can use fractions)
30 of 58
further aspects of NPV analysis: indivisible projects single period 3 stages
1) NPV of each project 2) rank 3) trial and error to get NPV using capped amount of capital (may leave some funds unused)
31 of 58
working capital management definition
money you need day to day to run a business (CA-CL)
32 of 58
working capital management objective
reduce time period as less interest
33 of 58
operating cash cycle definition
days of overdraft where you try to shorten the time period
34 of 58
3 ways of improving operating cash cycle
1) improve receivables speed 2) make suppliers wait longer 3) reduce amount of inventory carried

3 benefits of holding inventory
1) advantage of quantity discounts (more bought=cheaper but have to store) 2) technical reasons (maturing whisky adds value) 3) reduce risk of production shortages (production line flows)
40 of 58
3 costs of holding inventory
1) deterioration/ wearing out/ stealing (increased risk) 2) costs of storage (build/ rent/ maintaing/ workers/ transport) 3) shifts in market demand (seasons change)
41 of 58
3 costs of holding too little inventory
1) emergency re-order costs (transport/overtime/out of hours) 2) stock-out costs (delayed sale/ lost customer + production line stopped) 3) missed profits (miss high demand)
42 of 58
systems of control: JIT definition
increased efficiency and decreased waste by receiving goods when needed
43 of 58
systems of control: JIT positives/negatives
easily move to different product, less storage, less cost of materials/ relying on one supplier, need accurate demand forecast
44 of 58
systems of control: ABC definition
class inventory on importance (ABC), each handled in different way
45 of 58
systems of control: ABC positives/negatives
plans on re-order, alternative stock, frequent checks/ needs definite ranking of importance
46 of 58
3 things you need to find to minimise overall cost of inventory
1) optimum order quantity (EOQ) 2) quantity of 'buffer' (safety) inventory required 3) optimum time to re-order
47 of 58
economic order quantity (EOQ) definition
best amount to order at any given price (constant)/ cost is minimised when order costs=holding costs
48 of 58
EOQ: 2 assumptions
1) order at X inventory = use all up = re-order = arrives just as runs out 2) demand evenly spread

Debtors (TR) definition
element of risk in credit sales, which increase with length of credit period
52 of 58
Debtors: 7 factors to consider when lending
competitors policies/ credit period/ cost of finance/ discount policy/ credit standards (rating)/ collection policy/ credit control or debt factoring
53 of 58
ways of turning uncertain cash flows from debtors more certain: debt factoring
sell debts (customer owes you money which you sell to someone else), they give you 80% of the value
54 of 58
ways of turning uncertain cash flows from debtors more certain: invoice discounting
invoice used as security for loan, company still issues and collects money, however discounting house advances them at 96-97% of full value
55 of 58
Creditors (TP) definition
credit is used as a source of finance (people lend interest free), ideally want to make period as long as possible without annoying supplier
56 of 58
3 credit benefits
1) convient and informal (no special process to obtain) 2) low-cost finance (pretty much interest free) 3) discounts made available (if paid before certain date)
57 of 58
4 credit drawbacks
1) loss of credit status (low priority to future orders) 2) supplier raises prices (compensate for finance he is involuntarily supplying) 3) loss of cash discount (payment not prompt) 4) distrust with supplier (longer you leave payment)
