Toronto Company applies overhead based on direct labor hours. At the beginning of 20x2, the company estimateed that manufacturing overhead would be \$500,000, and direct labor hours would total 50,000. By 20x2 year-end, actual overhead totaled \$510,000, and actual direct labor hours were 45,000. On the basis of this information, the 20x2 over-or-underapplied overahead is:

 Predetermined Overhead application rate = Estimated Manufacturing overhead / Estimated direct labour hours Predetermined Overhead application rate = \$500000/50000 direct labour hours = \$10 per direct labour hour Overhead applied in 20x2 = Actual direct labour hours * Predetermined overhead application rate Overhead applied in 20x2 = 45000 hours * \$10 = \$4,50,000 The 20X2 Overhead underapplied = Actual overheads - Applied Overheads = \$510000 - \$450000 = \$60,000
