Harris Fabrics computes its plantwide predetermined overhead rate annually on the basis of direct labor-hours. At the beginning of the year, it estimated that 39,000 direct labor-hours would be required for the period’s estimated level of production. The company also estimated \$503,000 of fixed manufacturing overhead cost for the coming period and variable manufacturing overhead of \$3.00 per direct labor-hour. Harris’s actual manufacturing overhead cost for the year was \$691,149 and its actual total direct labor was 39,500 hours.

Required:

Compute the company’s plantwide predetermined overhead rate for the year. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

Answer- The predetermined overhead rate is = \$15.89 per direct labor hour.

Explanation- Predetermined overhead rate = Estimated total Manufacturing Overhead / Estimated total direct labor hours

= \$620,000/39,000 direct labor hours

= \$15.89 per direct labor hour

= \$117,000+\$503,000

= \$620,000

Estimated variable manufacturing overhead = Variable manufacturing overhead per hour* Estimated direct labor hours

= \$3.00 per direct labor hour*39,000 direct labor hours

= \$117,000
