Tammy Cat Tree Co. (TCTC) builds luxury cat trees and sells them through the Internet to cat owners who want to provide their cats with a more natural environment. At the start of 2013, TCTC carried no inventory. During the year, it produced 1,000 cat trees and sold 800 cat trees for $300 each. Fixed production costs were $100,000 and variable production costs were $75 per cat tree. Fixed advertising, website, and other general and administrative expenses were $50,000 and variable shipping costs were $25 per tree.
1. Prepare an income statement assuming TCTC uses:
a. Variable costing.
b. Absorption costing.
2. Compute the breakeven point in units assuming TCTC uses:
