Using the general economic transfer pricing rule, calculate the
optimal transfer price assuming the Can division is *at
capacity*.

Answer #1

Ans:

Transfer price means selling price of one unit which is transferred from one division to another division of the same organisation

in general if a division has spare capacity of production it should transfer at its variable cost to other division

if division has no spare capacity it utilises maximum capacity of production and haveing demand from out side customers in such a case

Transfer price=variable cost+contribution foregone

hear based on above transfer price from can division to paint division

**situation one below capacity variable cost @2$ per
unit**

**situation two at capacity selling price to outside
customer @3$ per uni**t
