b. Variable product costs plus a fixed fee of 20%

Homework Answers

Answer #1

A)

Transfer at market price: In this problem it is given that retail price of chair leg is $20, the market price transfer would thus be made at $20 per leg

B)

Material cost for 30,000 units - $135,000

Labour cost for 30,000 units - $90,000

Variable cost for 30,000 units - $22,500 (90,000*25%)

Total variable cost for 30,000 units - $247,500

Variable cost per unit - $8.25 ($247,500/30,000)

Fixed fee @20% - $1.65 ($8.25*20%)

Transfer price - $9.9 (8.25 + 1.65)
