Deep Freeze produces fleece jackets. The company uses JIT costing for its JIT production system. Deep Freeze has two inventory accounts: Raw and In-Process Inventory and Finished Goods Inventory. On February 1, 2014, the account balances were Raw and In-Process Inventory, $ 10,000; Finished Goods Inventory, $ 1,600. The standard cost of a jacket is $ 39, comprised of $ 16 direct materials plus $ 23 conversion costs. Data for February’s activities follow:
Number of jackets completed ........... 19,000
Number of jackets sold (on account for $ 70 each) ... 18,600
Direct materials purchased (on account) .......$ 301,500
