Last period, 13,000 units were produced. In the current period, 15,000 units were produced.
In each period, 13,000 units were sold. What is the difference in reported income under
absorption and variable costing for the current period?
A. The variable-costing income exceeded absorption-costing income by P4,000.
B. The absorption-costing income exceeded variable-costing income by P8,000.

. A company manufactures a single product for its customers by contracting in advance of
production. Therefore, the company only produces units that will be sold by the end of each
period. During the last period, the following sales were made and costs incurred:

Insurance (2/3 factory, 1/3 office)
1,200
Office supplies
750
Advertising
700
Depreciation on office equipment

Based on the above data, the gross margin percentage for the last period (rounded to nearest
percent) was
A. 41%
C. 46%

The Blue Company has failed to reach its planned activity level during its first two years of
operation. The following table shows the relationship between units produced, sales, and
normal activity for these years and the projected relationship for Year 3. All prices and costs
have remained the same for the last two years and are expected to do so in Year 3. Income
has been positive in both Year 1 and Year 2.

income have been using absorption costing?
A. P40,000
B. P50,000
C. P60,000

During the current year, the companys production equaled the budgeted. The inventory increased.
absorption costing income is higher than the variable costing income.

Therefore,

iv

. Answer: C
The production and unit sales during year 3 matched with year 1.

. Answer: C
The income under absorption costing is higher by P10,000 because the amount of fixed overhead that related to unsold
units was deferred and was included as cost of finished goods inventory. The variable costing income statement
immediately wrote the entire fixed overhead that was incurred during the year as period cost.
Fixed overhead deferred as product cost: 5,000 x P2
