Question: Technology Accessories Inc is a designer manufacturer and distributor of

Technology Accessories Inc. is a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of accessories for consumer electronic products. Early in 2014, the company began production of a leather cover for tablet computers, called the iLeather. The cover is made of stitched leather with a velvet interior and fits snuggly around most tablet computers. In January, $ 750,000 was spent on developing marketing and advertising materials. For the first six months of 2014, the company spent $ 1,400,000 promoting the iLeather. The product was ready for manufacture on January 21, 2014.
Technology Accessories Inc. uses a job order cost system to accumulate costs for the iLeather. Direct materials unit costs for the iLeather are as follows:
Leather ........$ 10.00
Velvet .......... 5.00
Packaging ....... 0.40
Total .........$ 15.40
The actual production process for the iLeather is fairly straightforward. First, leather is brought to a cutting and stitching machine. The machine cuts the leather and stitches an exterior edge into the product. The machine requires one hour per 125 iLeatherss. After the iLeather is cut and stitched, it is brought to assembly, where assembly personnel affix the velvet interior and pack the iLeather for shipping. The direct labor cost for this work is $ 0.50 per unit. The completed packages are then sold to retail outlets through a sales force. The sales force is compensated by a 20% commission on the wholesale price for all sales. Total completed production was 500,000 units during the year. Other information is as follows:
Number of iLeather units sold in 2014 .....460,000
Wholesale price per unit ........... $ 40
Factory overhead cost is applied to jobs at the rate of $ 1,250 per machine hour. There were an additional 22,000 cut and stitched iLeathers waiting to be assembled on December 31, 2014.

1. Prepare an annual income statement for the iLeather product, including supporting calculations, from the information above.
