Question #1 – Problem 3-25 (pp. 131–132)Multiple Departments; Overhead Rates; Underapplied or Overapplied Overhead[LO3, LO5, LO8]

Hobart, Evans, and Nix is a small law firm that employs 10 partners and 12 support persons. The firm uses a job-order costing system to accumulate costs changeable to each client, and it is organized into two departments-the Research and Documents Department and the Litigation Department. The firm uses predetermined overhead rates to change the costs of these departments to its clients. At the beginning of the year, the firm’s management made the following estimates for the year:

 

Department
Research and Development  

Litigation

Research-hour 24,000
Direct attorney-hour 9,000 18,000
Legal forms and supplies $16,000 $5,000
Direct attorney cost $450,000 $900,000
Departmental overhead cost $840,000 $360,000

 

The predetermined overhead rate in the Research and Documents Department is based on research-hours, and the rate in the Litigation Department is based on direct attorney cost.

The costs charged to each client are made up of three elements: legal forms and supplies used, direct attorney cost incurred, and an applied amount of overhead from each department in which work is performed on the case.

Case 418-3 was initiated on February 23 and completed on May 16. during this period, the following costs and time were recorded on the case:

 

Department
Research and Development  

Litigation

Research-hour 26
Direct attorney-hour 7 114
Legal forms and supplies $80 $40
Direct attorney cost $350 $5,700

  1. Compute the predetermined overhead rate used during the year in the Research and Documents Department. Compute the rate used in the Litigation Department.
  2. Using the rates you computed in (1) above, compute the total overhead cost applied to Case 418-3.
  3. what would be the total cost changed in Case 418-3? Show computations by department and in total for the case.
