T F 2. On an income statement prepared under a standard cost accounting system, cost of goods sold is stated at standard costs with variances disclosed separately.

T F 3. An unfavorable labor quantity variance indicates the actual number of direct labor hours worked was greater than the number of direct labor hours that should have been worked for the output attained.

T F 4. Both the book value and the disposal value of an existing asset are relevant in a retain or replace equipment decision.

T F 5. A direct labor price standard is frequently called the direct labor efficiency standard.

T F 6. The cash payback technique identifies the time period required to recover the cost of the capital investment from the annual cash inflow produced by the investment.

Gulf Production manufactures recycle bins using recycled plastic that it sells to municipal governments. It has developed the following per unit standard costs for 2014 for each bine:
Direct Materials Direct Labor Manufacturing Overhead
Standard quantity 3 pounds hour hour
Standard price $0.80 $12.00 $4.50
Unit standard cost $2.40 $6.00 $2.25

1. Direct materials purchased and used were 116,000 pounds of plastic that cost $98,600.
2. Direct labor costs were $258,300 for 21,000 direct labor hours actually worked.
3. Total manufacturing overhead was $88,000.
4. Actual production was 40,200 bins.

Compute the following variances:
1. Direct materials price
2. Direct materials quantity
3. Direct labor price
4. Direct labor quantity
5. Total overhead variance


Shangria Company is considering a capital investment of $140,000 in new equipment, which is expected to have a useful life of 4 years with no salvage value. Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method. During the life of the investment, annual net income and cash inflows are expected to be $10,000 and $45,000, respectively. Shangria requires either a 10% rate of return, or a payback period of 3 years.

Instructions: Compute the (a) annual rate of return, (b) cash payback period, (c) net present value, (d) profitability index, and (e) internal rate of return. Show all computations. State whether the project should be accepted or rejected for each of the five capital budgeting techniques.
