acofino Restaurantsis a local company with a commissary on Hastings St, several food bars around Vancouver, and several food trucks that serve West Coast and Mexican inspired fare. Suppose the company has just been awarded an exclusive permit to serve their foodstuff along 500 metres stretch of Beach Ave during Vancouver’s Celebration of Lightfireworks. On any given night during the firework show Tacofino expects that up to 10,000 visitors may want to buy their “bahn tofu” tacos that they intend to sell from the food trucks. They think that the Hotelling spatial model is a good framework to make theirbusiness decision, and here are their estimates: the taco’s reservation price is $9, a customer’s cost of traveling along crowded Beach Ave is $8/km, and a truck costs $250 to rent for one night. The cost of making tacos is flat ¢90 per taco. 4. How many trucks will Tacofino put in the street on the night of Celebration of Light? 5. What is the profit-maximizing price ($ per taco)? 6. What profit will Tacofino expect to make ($ per night)? 7. What would be the efficient number of trucks(maximizing social surplus)

Information concerning Concord Corporation’s intangible assets is as follows. 1. On January 1, 2020, Concord signed an agreement to operate as a franchisee of Hsian Copy Service, Inc. for an initial franchise fee of $60,000. Of this amount, $12,000 was paid when the agreement was signed, and the balance is payable in 4 annual payments of $12,000 each, beginning January 1, 2021. The agreement provides that the down payment is not refundable and no future services are required of the franchisor. The present value at January 1, 2020, of the 4 annual payments discounted at 12% (the implicit rate for a loan of this type) is $36,450. The agreement also provides that 8% of the revenue from the franchise must be paid to the franchisor annually. Concord’s revenue from the franchise for 2020 was $850,000. Concord estimates the useful life of the franchise to be 10 years. (Hint: You may want to refer to Chapter 18 to determine the proper accounting treatment for the franchise fee and payments.) 2. Concord incurred $75,000 of experimental and development costs in its laboratory to develop a patent that was granted on January 2, 2020. Legal fees and other costs associated with registration of the patent totaled $20,000. Concord estimates that the useful life of the patent will be 8 years. 3. A trademark was purchased from Shanghai Company for $35,000 on July 1, 2017. Expenditures for successful litigation in defense of the trademark totaling $10,200 were paid on July 1, 2020. Concord estimates that the useful life of the trademark will be 20 years from the date of acquisition.

Andretti Company has a single product called a Dak. The company normally produces and sells 80,000 Daks each year at a selling price of $58 per unit. The company’s unit costs at this level of activity are given below:
|Variable manufacturing overhead||3.30|
|Fixed manufacturing overhead||5.00||($400,000 total)|
|Variable selling expenses||1.70|
|Fixed selling expenses||4.00||($320,000 total)|
|Total cost per unit||$||32.50|
A number of questions relating to the production and sale of Daks follow. Each question is independent.
1-a. Assume that Andretti Company has sufficient capacity to produce 96,000 Daks each year without any increase in fixed manufacturing overhead costs. The company could increase its unit sales by 20% above the present 80,000 units each year if it were willing to increase the fixed selling expenses by $130,000. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of investing an additional $130,000 in fixed selling expenses?
1-b. Would the additional investment be justified?
2. Assume again that Andretti Company has sufficient capacity to produce 96,000 Daks each year. A customer in a foreign market wants to purchase 16,000 Daks. If Andretti accepts this order it would have to pay import duties on the Daks of $2.70 per unit and an additional $12,800 for permits and licenses. The only selling costs that would be associated with the order would be $2.40 per unit shipping cost. What is the break-even price per unit on this order?
3. The company has 600 Daks on hand that have some irregularities and are therefore considered to be "seconds." Due to the irregularities, it will be impossible to sell these units at the normal price through regular distribution channels. What is the unit cost figure that is relevant for setting a minimum selling price?
4. Due to a strike in its supplier’s plant, Andretti Company is unable to purchase more material for the production of Daks. The strike is expected to last for two months. Andretti Company has enough material on hand to operate at 25% of normal levels for the two-month period. As an alternative, Andretti could close its plant down entirely for the two months. If the plant were closed, fixed manufacturing overhead costs would continue at 35% of their normal level during the two-month period and the fixed selling expenses would be reduced by 20% during the two-month period.
a. How much total contribution margin will Andretti forgo if it closes the plant for two months?
b. How much total fixed cost will the company avoid if it closes the plant for two months?
c. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of closing the plant for the two-month period?
d. Should Andretti close the plant for two months?
5. An outside manufacturer has offered to produce 80,000 Daks and ship them directly to Andretti’s customers. If Andretti Company accepts this offer, the facilities that it uses to produce Daks would be idle; however, fixed manufacturing overhead costs would be reduced by 30%. Because the outside manufacturer would pay for all shipping costs, the variable selling expenses would be only two-thirds of their present amount. What is Andretti’s avoidable cost per unit that it should compare to the price quoted by the outside manufacturer?
In 2019, ABC purchased a silver mine for $10,200,000 with removable silver estimated at 1,000,000 tons. ABC is required to mitigate environmental damage after mining the silver and expects to spend $5,105,126.25 five years from now in order to do so. ABC’s cost of capital for similar investments is 5%. The property has an estimated value of $500,000 after the gold has been extracted. The company incurred $2,500,000 of intangible development costs getting the mine up and running. During 2019, 200,000 tons were removed and 150,000 tons were sold.
What is the amount of depletion that ABC should expense for 2019?
“Blast it!” said David Wilson, president of Teledex Company. “We’ve just lost the bid on the Koopers job by $2,000. It seems we’re either too high to get the job or too low to make any money on half the jobs we bid.” Teledex Company manufactures products to customers’ specifications and uses a job-order costing system. The company uses a plantwide predetermined overhead rate based on direct labor cost to apply its manufacturing overhead (assumed to be all fixed) to jobs. The following estimates were made at the beginning of the year: Department Fabricating Machining Assembly Total Plant Manufacturing overhead $ 353,500 $ 404,000 $ 90,900 $ 848,400 Direct labor $ 202,000 $ 101,000 $ 303,000 $ 606,000 Jobs require varying amounts of work in the three departments. The Koopers job, for example, would have required manufacturing costs in the three departments as follows: Department Fabricating Machining Assembly Total Plant Direct materials $ 3,200 $ 200 $ 1,600 $ 5,000 Direct labor $ 3,200 $ 500 $ 6,400 $ 10,100 Manufacturing overhead ? ? ? ? Required: 1. Using the company's plantwide approach: a. Compute the plantwide predetermined rate for the current year. b. Determine the amount of manufacturing overhead cost that would have been applied to the Koopers job. 2. Suppose that instead of using a plantwide predetermined overhead rate, the company had used departmental predetermined overhead rates based on direct labor cost. Under these conditions: a.Compute the predetermined overhead rate for each department for the current year. b. Determine the amount of manufacturing overhead cost that would have been applied to the Koopers job. 4. Assume that it is customary in the industry to bid jobs at 150% of total manufacturing cost (direct materials, direct labor, and applied overhead). a.What was the company’s bid price on the Koopers job using a plantwide predetermined overhead rate? b.What would the bid price have been if departmental predetermined overhead rates had been used to apply overhead cost?

Auric plc is a mining company, whose main business consists of
mining. It has Articles of Association that are in the form of model Articles. The
board of directors includes Penny, Howard and Emily.
At a recent board meeting, the directors considered an offer
from Trek Mines
plc to sell land adjoining one of Auric plc’s mining sites for £550,000. The
board of Auric plc decided that the company should not accept the offer as it
doubted whether it could raise the finance needed to buy the land. Penny then
formed her own company, Gold Ltd, which purchased the land for £550,000. At
the same meeting, the directors discussed a proposed contract with Texas plc,
which is being considered to survey a plot of land recently purchased by Auric
plc. Howard owns 10% of the shares in Texas plc, but did not reveal his interest
at the board meeting.
Emily has an arrangement with Comic plc whereby she receives a 10%
commission for all orders placed with it by Auric plc. Six months ago, Auric plc
purchased some drilling equipment from Comic plc for £100,000, for which
Emily was paid £10,000 commission.
The shareholders of Auric plc have discovered these facts, and
passed an ordinary resolution directing the board of directors to commence
legal proceedings against Penny, Howard and Emily.
