Question

Falcon Design is a website design and consulting firm. The firm uses a job cost system in which each client is a different “job.” Falcon Design traces direct labor, licensing costs, and travel costs directly to each job (client). It allocates indirect costs to jobs based on a predetermined indirect cost allocation rate computed as a percentage of direct labor costs. At the beginning of the current year, managing partner Mary Milici prepared the ­following budget:
Direct labor hours (professional)................................................. 7,500 hours
Direct labor costs (professional).................................................. $ 1,500,000
Support staff salaries................................................................... $ 180,000
Computer lease payments.......................................................... $ 46,000
Office supplies............................................................................. $ 24,000
Office rent................................................................................... $ 65,000

Later that same year in November, Falcon Design served several clients. Records for two clients appear here:



Requirements
1. Compute Falcon Design’s predetermined indirect cost allocation rate for the current year.

3. If Falcon Design wants to earn profits equal to 20% of sales revenue, how much (what total fee) should the company charge each of these two clients?
