In March 2013, the firm spent $ 32,500 for general company promotions (as opposed to advertisements for specific properties).

He is considering whether to base his allocations on the (1) expected increase in divisional revenue from the promotions or (2) expected increase in divisional profit from the promotions (before allocated promotion costs). General promotions had the following effects on the two divisions:


a. Allocate the total promotion cost to the two divisions using change in revenue.
b. Allocate the total promotion cost to the two divisions using change in profit before joint cost allocation.
