Coverdrive Ltd Case Study

By NurulMastura1 Apr 02, 2013 751 Words
Coverdrive Ltd Case Study, Overhead Recovery When John Thistle, the management accountant, joined Coverdrive one of his early projects was a review of the treatment of production overhead and the impact of ABC – Activity Based Costing. Prior to John’s appointment a single overhead recovery rate had been used for the charging of production overhead to the company’s range of products. In a recent meeting with Steve Ambrose, the MD, John discussed the need for separate overhead recovery rates for each producing cost centre. John had prepared a number of schedules based on the current year’s budget. These illustrate the procedure of allocation of apportionment of overhead to the expense centres and the use of this process in determining the recovery rates for each. John had identified the following cost centres: Schedule 1 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 Machining Finishing Packing Maintenance Stores Production Control and Inspection Canteen Building occupancy costs

(for all costs associated with the building)
