Tutorial Notes
Student should take in to accounts the period of cost sheet. Here it
is one month. Any expenditure given for a period should be taken
proportionately for the cost sheet period, e.g. Depreciation of
factory, building, royalty etc.
2 Student should note the different ways of giving expenses. When
they are given as percentage or per unit they should be carefully
calculated.
3 Prime cost, factory cost, cost of production are calculated by
dividing the respective cost by the units produced i.e.10,000 But
cost of goods sold and cost of sales are calculated by dividing the
respective cost by unit

## Cost of production per unit = Cost of production

= Rs.1.473
Per unit cost of goods sold = Cost of goods sold
Unit sold
= 16,823 =1.473 (approx)
11,418
Tutorial Notes:
Opening stock of finished goods is not given, so it is assumed as
nil.
Unit produce are

19,030

11,418

7,612

## The valuation of these 7,612 units is to be made at

Cost of production

x 7,612

Unit produce
So when the value of closing stock is not given this value to be
calculated by the above formula. Secondly when machine hours
are given and rate per hour is given then the factory overhead
to be calculated as follows
Factory overheads =Machine hours worked x Rate per hour.

Tutorial Notes
Material and labour are variable cost, so firstly the old rate
calculated. Then the % increase in rate is calculated and new
rate is multiplied by new quantity of production.
The same method is follow whenever there is change in price
level.
In case of manufacturing cost, it is increased in proportion to
increase in the combined cost of material and labour.
So new combined cost is to be divided by the old combined cost
and multiplied by manufacturing cost already given.
In case of other expenses no change. They are taken at old
figures, selling expenses rate is calculated so it is multiplied by
new quantity of production profit so 10% on selling price the
selling price is not given so it is assumed Rs.100 10% of this is
Rs. 10 profit so cost = sales - profit = 100 - 10 = 90 so on 90
cost the profit is 10 the ratio 10 = 1

When units produced are not given but the
units of raw materials are given. Then units produced are
calculating as under.

## Units produced or production during the period.

2.
Once you get units produced you can easily calculate
units sold and using the following statement.
Opening stock of finished goods
+ Units produced (as calculate above)

10,200

## - Closing stock of finished goods

Units sold

10,000

3.
The cost of goods sold per unit be calculate by dividing
the cost of goods sold by unit sold i.e. 10,000 so also profit per

unit other per unit costs are to calculate by dividing the cost by
unit produced i.e. 10,200.
