Should the wheel dividsion manager accept the offer? Show computations Variable Cost Wheel Sold From the standpoint of the company, will the internal sale be beneficial?

Answer:- A)- Yes, the Wheel division manager should accept the offer and transfer the wheels to van division on the price of \$76 per wheel.

Wheel division total capacity =700000 wheels

Outside sale by Wheel division = 500000 wheels

Spare capacity = 200000 wheels

Demand from Van division = 180000 wheels

Extra contribution to wheel division due to transfer = Transfer price per wheel- Variable cost per wheel

= \$76 per wheel- (\$26+\$20+\$12) per wheel

= \$18 per wheel

From the standpoint of the company, the internal sale will be beneficial for both divisions, because Van division has been buying wheels from outside suppliers at \$100 per wheel, but from wheel division at \$76 per wheel.
