Management Accounting Assignment:

TASK

You have decided to go into partnership with a colleague enrolled in your ACC2CAD subject. Your partnership business will consist of two subsidiaries (each subsidiary will be responsible for each of your product/service from your individual assignment) responsible for the production and selling of the product/service you each selected for your individual assignment. As the owners and accountants of your new partnership you are required to undertake cost-volume profit (CVP) analyses, prepare flexible budgets, and consider transfer pricing options based on the standard cost and prices you determined for your individual products in your individual assignment.

INSTRUCTIONS/REQUIREMENTS

Please use Excel to undertake and record your relevant calculations for requirements below.

  1. Assume the actual results for your products/services costs (i.e price of direct materials, direct labour and overheads) are 10% more than what you budgeted for in your individual assignments’ master budget and the quantities are 5% (i.e sales level, quantity of materials used, etc) less to prepare the following for each subsidiary:
    • A static budget at budgeted sales.
    • A flexible profit and loss statement budget using actual sales level.
    • Actual profit and loss statement.
    • Calculate variances and investigate reasons for two of the most significant variances.
  2. Determine the sales mix for your products/services (provide detailed justification for your sales mix) and form a package contribution margin to calculate the break-even point in units and sales dollars. Prepare a contribution margin income statement to verify your break-event points.
