This problem continues the Daniels Consulting situation from Problem PI7-40 of Chapter 17. Recall that Daniels allocated indirect costs to jobs based on a predetermined overhead allocation rate, computed as a percentage of direct labor costs. Because Daniels provides a service, there are no direct materials costs. Daniels is now considering using an ABC system. Information about ABC costs follows:
Records for two clients appear here:
1. Compute the total cost for each job. The cost of direct labor is $176 per hour.
2. Is the job cost greater or less than that computed in Problem PI7-40 for each job? Why?
3. If Daniels wants to earn an operating income equal to 25% of the total cost, how much (what fee) should it charge each of these two clients?
