Transcript

  • 1. Standard Costing
  • 2.
    • Standard Costing is a technique which uses standards for costs and revenues for the purpose of control through variance analysis
    • Standard is a predetermined measurable quantity set in defined conditions against which actual performance can be compared, usually for an element of work, operation or activity.
  • 3.
    • Basically a standard means
    • Predetermined estimates
    • Established for inputs and outputs
    • Applicable to all routine aspects of an organization's operations
    • Accounting for standard costs and obtaining variances
    • Reporting to management for taking appropriate action wherever necessary.
  • 4. Objectives of Standard Costing
    • To provide a formal basis for assessing performance and efficiency
    • To control Costs by establishing standards and analysis of variances
    • To enable the principle of “Management by Exception” to be practised at the detailed operational level.
    • To assist in setting budgets
  • 5.
    • To assist in assigning responsibility for non-standard performance in order to correct deficiencies or to capitalise on benefits.
    • To motivate staff and management
    • To provide a basis for estimating
    • To provide guidance on possible ways of improving performance
  • 6. Types of Standards
    • Current Standard- Current Standard is a Standard established for use over a short period of time, related to current conditions.
    • Basic Standard- Basic Standard is a Standard established for use over a long period of time from which a Current Standard can be developed.
  • 7.
    • Ideal Standard –It is the Standard that can be attained under most favourable conditions.No provision is made for shrinkage,spoilage or machine breakdown etc.
    • Ideal Standards are not generally used because it may influence employee motivation adversely.
  • 8.
    • Attainable Standard- It is a standard which can be attained if a standard unit of work is carried out efficiently, on a machine properly utilised or material properly used.
    • Allowances are made for shrinkage, spoilage or machine breakdown etc.
  • 9. Establishing Cost Standards
    • Engineering Estimates
    • Observed Behaviour
    • Predicted Behaviour
    • Desired Behaviour
  • 10. Variance Analysis
    • Variance is the difference between planned, budgeted or standard cost and actual cost as well as in respect of revenues.
  • 11.
    • Variances can be classified into the following categories:
    • Material Variance
    • Labour Variance
    • Variable Overhead Variance
    • Fixed Overhead Variances
    • Sales Variances
    • Profit Variances
  • 12. Material Cost Variance
    • Standard Cost of Material- Actual Cost of Material
    • =(Standard Units x Standard Price) – (Actual Units x Actual Price)
  • 13. Material Price Variance
    • Actual Quantity (Standard Price Per Unit- Actual Price Per Unit)
  • 14. Material Usage Variance
    • Standard Price Per Unit (Standard Quantity-Actual Quantity)
    • Material Usage Variance is segregated into
    • (i) Material Mix Variance, and
    • (ii) Material Yield Variance
  • 15. Material Mix Variance
    • Standard Price (Revised Standard Quantity- Actual Quantity)
    • Revised Standard Quantity
    • = Total Quantity of Actual Mix
    • Total Quantity of Standard Mix
  • 16. Material Yield Variance
    • Standard Cost per unit (Standard Output for Actual Mix – Actual Output)
  • 17.
    • Material Cost Variance
    • = Material Price Variance+ Material Usage Variance
    • Where, Material Usage Variance = Material Mix Variance+ Material Yield Variance
  • 18.
    • Thus Material Cost Variance
    • = Material Price Variance+ Material Mix Variance+ Material Yield Variance
  • 19. From the following data compute the material cost variance: Material Standard Actual Qty Price Qty Price (Units) (Rs.) (Units) (Rs.) X 3,500 10 3,700 12 Y 1,500 21 1,650 20 Z 1,000 33 1,250 36
