The Temp makes electronic thermostats for homes and offices. The Orlando division makes one product, Autotherm, which has a standard cost of $33, consisting of $22 of materials and $11 of conversion costs. In January, actual purchases of materials totaled $235,000, labor payroll costs were $24,000, and manufacturing overhead was $76,000. Completed output was 10,000 units.
The Orlando division uses a backflush-costing system that records costs in materials inventory and conversion costs accounts and applies costs to products at the time production is completed.
There were no finished-goods inventories on January 1 and 30 units on January 31.
