2nd Flr, GF Partners Bldg, 139 H.V. dela Costa, Salcedo Village, Makati City SUMMARY OF STUDY OBJECTIVES  When two or more different products are manufactured in the same production process it is called a Joint production process.  The major products resulting from a joint production process are called Joint products.  A products yield in joint production process with a relatively small value is a by – products.  The costs incurred in the joint production process which is common to all products are called Joint costs.  The split-off point is the point in the production process where the products become identifiable, and as a result of their separate identity, their production costs can be measured separately.  All costs incurred beyond the split-off point that is assignable to one or more individual products are called separable costs. METHODS OF ALLOCATING JOINT COSTS 1. Allocate joint costs using market value a. Sales Value at Split off – allocates joint costs to joint products on the basis of the relative sales value at the split off point. b. Approximated Net Realizable Value- allocates joint costs to joint products on the basis of relative estimated NRV(Final sales value minus the expected separable costs) c. Net Realizable Value at Split-off- allocates joint costs on the basis of estimated realizable value at split-off point. d. Constant Margin Approach- allocates joint costs in such a way that the overall gross margin percentage is identical for the individual products. 2. Allocate joint costs using physical measure a. Units of Production Method-allocates joint costs based on the number of units produced. b. Weighted Average Method-allocates joint costs based on the weight, units or other measure. ACCOUNTING FOR BY PRODUCTS 1. By products are accounted during production (Net Realizable Value approach) - NRV of the by products is treated as a reduction from the joint costs of the main products. Any loss of the by products or scrap is added to the cost to the cost of the main products 2. By products are accounted during sale (Realizable Value approach) – The realized value of the by products or scrap maybe reported as other sales revenue or other income. Standard Cost – the predetermined costs of manufacturing a single unit or a number of product units during a specific period in the immediate future.  The purpose of standard cost accounting is to control and promote efficiency.  Organizations have many reasons for using standard costs, including: Costs control; Pricing decisions; Performance appraisal; Cost awareness; and Management by objectives. Types of Variance A variance exists when standard costs differ from actual costs. I. II. III.

Materials a. Price variance b. Quantity variance Labor a. Rate variance b. Efficiency variance Factory Overhead 1. Two – variance method a. Controllable variance b. Volume variance 2. Three variance method a. Spending variance b. Idle capacity variance c. Efficiency variance a. Spending variance

b. Variable Efficiency variance c. Volume variance Material Price Variance AQ x AP AQ x SP = MPV

= Pxxx xxx = Pxxx

(AP – SP) X AQ = MPV

AQ = Actual Quantity AP = Actual Price SP = Standard Price

Material price variance is caused by paying a higher or lower price than the standard price for materials. Material Quantity Variance AQ x SP = Pxxx SQ x SP = xxx MQV = Pxxx

(AQ - SQ) X SP = MQV

AQ = Actual Quantity SQ = Standard Quantity SP = Standard Price

Material efficiency variance is caused by using more or less than the standard amount of materials to produce a product. Labor Rate Variance AH x AR = Pxxx AH x SP = xxx LRV = Pxxx

(AR - SR) X AH = LRV

AH = Actual Hours AR = Actual Rate SR = Standard Rate

Labor rate variance is caused by paying a higher or lower rate of pay than the standard to produce a product or complete a process. Labor Efficiency Variance AH x SP = Pxxx SH x SP = xxx LEV = Pxxx

(AH - SH) X SR = LEV

AH = Actual Hours SH = Standard Hours SR = Standard Rate

Labor efficiency variance is caused by using more or less than the standard amount of labor hours to produce a product or complete a process. Two Variance methods Controllable Variance AFO BASH CV

MULTIPLE CHOICE Lee Co. produces two joint products, Bex and Rom. Joint production costs for June 2001 were P30,000. During June 2001, further processing costs beyond the split-off point needed to convert the products into salable form, were P25,000 and P35,000 for 1,600 units of Bex and 800 units of Rom, respectively. Bex sells for P50 per unit, and Rom sells for P100 per unit. Lee uses the net realizable value method for allocating joint product costs. 1. For June 2001, the joint costs allocated to product Bex were a. P20,000 b. P16,500 c. P13,500 d. P10,000 Life Co. manufactures products X and Y from a joint process that also yields a by-product, Z. Revenue from sales of Z is treated as a reduction of joint costs. Additional information is as follows:

Alpha accounts for sales of Yum’s separable costs from Yum’s sales, and then deducting this net amount from the major product’s cost of goods sold. Yum’s sales were 100,000 units at P1.00 each. 3. If Alpha changes its method of accounting for Yum’s sales by showing the net amount as additional sales revenue, then Alpha’s gross margin would a. Increase by P90,000 b. Increase by P100,000 c.
