Carlton Speciality PLC is a small family owned firm that manufactures custom made furniture and uses job costing system. The company does not have computerised system and thus maintains all accounting records on hard copies that are stored in the accounting office area. Overhead is applied using a predetermined rate that is set at the start of the year based on budgeted figures. The cost driver used for overhead cost allocation is direct labour hours.
