Jordan Brady schedules gigs for local bands and creates CDs and t- shirts to sell at each


Jordan Brady schedules gigs for local bands and creates CDs and t- shirts to sell at each gig. Brady uses a normal- costing system with two direct- cost pools, labor and materials, and one indirect- cost pool, general overhead. General overhead is allocated to each gig based on 120% of labor cost. Actual overhead equaled allocated overhead in March 2012. Actual overhead in April was $ 1,980. All costs incurred during the planning stage for a gig and during the gig are gathered in a balance sheet account called “Gigs in Progress (GIP).” When a gig is completed, the costs are transferred to an income statement account called “Cost of Completed Gigs (CCG).” Following is cost information for April 2012:

As of April 1, there were three gigs in progress: Irok, Freke Out, and Bottom Rung. The gigs for Dish Towel and Rail Ride were started during April. The gigs for Freke Out and Dish Towel were completed during April.
