Required

a) Find out the overhead application rate on the basis of

i. Direct labour hours

ii. Overhead costs

iii. Machine hours, and

iv. Direct labour cost

v. Production cost

Solution

i. Direct labour hours method

Overhead application rate (OAR) = 62,000/15,500

= Shs.0.4/labour hour

ii. Direct labour cost method

OAR = (62,000/98,000) * 100

= 63.27 percent

iii. Machine hour method

OAR = (62,000/50,000) * 100

Shs.1.24/machine hour

b) Overhead costs utilizing

i. Direct labour hours = 0.4 x 40000 = Shs 16000

ii. Direct labour cost = 63.27% x 50000 = Shs 31630

iii. Machine hours = 30,000 x 1.24 = Shs 37200
