Topic 11 Cost Accounting And Management

  1. 1. Topic 10<br />Cost Accounting and Management<br />
  2. 2. Learning Objectives<br />Cost behaviour analysis - variable, fixed and mixed cost behaviour.<br />Explain the costs involved in manufacturing activities – direct material, direct labour and overhead. <br />
  3. 3. Cost Behaviour Analysis<br />Cost behaviour analysis:<br />Examines how costs behave when levels of business activity change:<br />Some costs change<br />Some costs stay the same<br />Helps in planning and choosing between alternatives.<br />Starts with identification of key activities and their relationships with various costs.<br />
  4. 4. Variable Costs<br />Variable costs change in total with increases and decreases in activity level.<br />e.g. direct materials, direct labour, COGS, freight costs, fuel<br />They are identified on a per-unit basis<br />Variable costs stay the same per unit as activity level changes.<br />Total variable costs change in proportion to change in activity level.<br />
  5. 5. Variable Costs (cont’d)<br />
  6. 6. Fixed Costs<br />Fixed costs do not change with increases and decreases in activity level.<br />e.g. rates, rent, insurance, supervisors’ salaries<br />Fixed cost per unit = total cost divided by units of activity level.<br />Total fixed costs stay the same.<br />Fixed cost per unit changes as activity level changes.<br />
  7. 7. Fixed Costs (cont’d)<br />
  8. 8. Mixed Costs<br />Mixed costs are also called semi-variable costs.<br />Mixed costs includes a fixed cost component plus a variable cost according to activity level.<br /> e.g. telephone (fixed line charge plus charge per unit consumed)<br />Mixed costs are often separated into fixed and variable components at end of period.<br />
  9. 9. Mixed Costs (cont’d)<br />
  10. 10. Importance of Identifying Costs<br />Identification of costs as fixed or variable is important for business decisions:<br />1. Effect on profitability of reduction in sales price.<br />Effect on activity level when expenses increase per unit to keep current profitability.<br />Minimum level of sales to cover costs.<br />Costs of maintaining level of production for different manufacturing methods.<br />
  11. 11. Manufacturing costs consists of:<br /><ul><li>Direct material: material and parts used directly during the manufacturing process.
  12. 12. Direct labour: the work of factory employees that are directly involved in producing the product.
  13. 13. Manufacturing overhead: costs that are indirectly associated with the manufacturing of the finished goods. Eg. Indirect material, indirect labour, depreciation on factory buildings.</li></li></ul><li>All costs<br />Product costs<br />(Manufacturing costs)<br />Period costs<br />(Non-manufacturing costs)<br />Direct materials<br />Selling expenses<br />Prime costs<br />Direct labour<br />Administrative <br />expenses<br />Conversion<br />costs<br />Manufacturing <br />overhead<br />
  14. 14. Product Costs – costs that are necessary and integral part of producing the finished product.<br />Direct labour and manufacturing overhead are incurred in converting raw materials into finished goods, these costs elements are often referred to as conversion costs.<br />Period costs– costs that are identified with a specific time period rather with a salable product. These costs relate to non-manufacturing costs and therefore are not inventorial costs.<br />
