Question

Raven Design is a website design and consulting firm. The firm uses a job cost system, in which each client is a different job. Raven Design traces direct labor, licensing costs, and travel costs directly to each job (client). It allocates indirect costs to jobs based on a pre-determined indirect cost allocation rate computed as a percentage of direct labor costs. At the beginning of the current year, managing partner Jill Herbert prepared the following budget:
Direct labor hours (professional)................................................. 8,000 hours
Direct labor costs (professional).................................................. $ 1,600,000
Support staff salaries................................................................... $ 190,000
Computer leases......................................................................... $ 41,000
Office supplies............................................................................. $ 23,000
Office rent................................................................................... $ 66,000
Later that same year in November, Raven Design served several clients. Records for two clients appear here:



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

3. If Raven 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?
