Main Street Ice Cream Company uses a plantwide allocation method to allocate overhead based on direct...

Main Street Ice Cream Company uses a plantwide allocation method to allocate overhead based on direct labor-hours at a rate of $3 per labor-hour. Strawberry and vanilla flavors are produced in Department SV. Chocolate is produced in Department C. Sven manages Department SV and Charlene manages Department C. The product costs (per thousand gallons) follow.

Strawberry Vanilla Chocolate
Direct labor (per 1,000 gallons) $ 768 $ 843 $ 1,143
Raw materials (per 1,000 gallons) 818 518 618

Required:

a. If the number of hours of labor per 1,000 gallons is 60 for strawberry, 70 for vanilla, and 100 for chocolate, compute the total cost of 1,000 gallons of each flavor using plantwide allocation.

b. Charlene's department uses older, outdated machines. She believes that her department is being allocated some of the overhead of Department SV, which recently bought state-of-the-art machines. After she requested that overhead costs be broken down by department, the following information was discovered:

Department SV Department C
Overhead $ 93,906 $ 38,665
Machine-hours 25,380 37,800
Labor-hours 25,380 18,500

Using machine-hours as the department allocation base for Department SV and labor-hours as the department allocation base for Department C, compute the allocation rate for each.

c. Compute the cost of 1,000 gallons of each flavor of ice cream using the department allocation rates computed in requirement (b) if the number of machine-hours for 1,000 gallons of each of the three flavors of ice cream are as follows: strawberry, 60; vanilla, 70; and chocolate, 168. Direct labor-hours by product remain the same as in requirement (a).

Swathmore Clothing Corporation grants its customers 30 days’ credit. The company uses the allowance method for its uncollectible accounts receivable. During the year, a monthly bad debt accrual is made by multiplying 3% times the amount of credit sales for the month.

91–120 days 57,000 27
Over 120 days 116,000 38
Total $ 680,000

Required:
1. Prepare a summary journal entry to record the monthly bad debt accrual and the write-offs during the year. (If no entry is required for a transaction/event, select "No journal entry required" in the first account field.) Record a summary entry to record the monthly bad debt accrual.
