# B6021 Module 1 Assignment 3 Calculating Inventory

Finlon Upholstery, Inc. uses a job-order costing system to accumulate manufacturing costs. The company’s

work-in-process on December 31, 20x1, consisted of one job (no. 2077), which was carried on

the year-end balance sheet at \$156,800. There was no finished-goods inventory on this date.

Finlon applies manufacturing overhead to production on the basis of direct-labor cost. (The

budgeted direct-labor cost is the company’s practical capacity, in terms of direct-labor hours,

multiplied by the budgeted direct-labor rate.) Budgeted totals for 20x2 for direct labor and manufacturing

overhead are \$4,200,000 and \$5,460,000, respectively. Actual results for the year

follow.

Direct material used ......................................................................................... \$ 5,600,000

Direct labor ...................................................................................................... 4,350,000

Indirect material used ....................................................................................... 65,000

Indirect labor ................................................................................................... 2,860,000

Factory insurance ............................................................................................ 59,000

Factory utilities ................................................................................................ 830,000

Selling and administrative expenses .................................................................. 2,160,000

Total ............................................................................................................ \$17,664,000

Job no. 2077 was completed in January 20x2; there was no work in process at year-end. All jobs produced

during 20x2 were sold with the exception of job no. 2143, which contained direct-material costs
