ACC403 - Principles of Accounting

Module 4 – Activity Based Costing

Case Assignment Task: The New Millenium Linen Company is a small family company that produces and sells towels. Millenium sells the towels to three types of stores: department stores, mid-sized specialty stores and small gift shops. The company is doing well and the CEO wants to expand the business. The contribution margin ratio is the highest for the small gift shops, so the CEO feels that those are the type of retail outlets to pursue.

Below find Millenium's income statement for last year.

======

Customer support & distribution costs are pretty high at Millenium. The total amount was $180,000 last year. The marketing manager has recently been to a seminar and learned about applying ABC to analyze customer and distribution costs. He suggests that the company analyze overhead costs associated with supporting different types of customers before proceeding with an expansion. The marketing manager knows that the small shops require a lot of attention and is somewhat dubious about the CEO's proposed strategy. The CEO accepts the suggestion and you are brought in as a consultant to prepare the analysis. The table below provides some information that may be pertinent for the analysis.

Required:
1.    Calculate the customer support and distribution costs associated with the three types of customers.

  • Use a simple strategy first and allocate the costs based on revenues.
  • Recalculate the allocations using activity based costing (ABC).

2.    Determine contribution margin less customer support and distribution costs for both approaches above.
3.    Which type of customer should the company support and why? Refer to your analysis in your response.

Modular Case Assignment Expectations:

The submission should be 2 to 4 pages and need to include computations in good format as well as a discussion interpreting the analysis. Answer all questions and include references in APA format.

ACC280 Week 3 Exercise E3-2
On numerous occasions, proposals have surfaced to put the federal government on the accrual basis of accounting. This is no small issue. If this basis were used, it would mean that billions in unrecorded liabilities would have to be booked, and the federal deficit would increase substantially

a) Why would politicians prefer the cash basis over the accrual basis?

Politicians prefer the cash basis of accounting because it is recorded in real time. When transactions are made, they are recorded only when it is officially made. If, for example, a tax payment schedule or cost of a new legislation wouldn’t occur until later, the transaction would not be recorded until that event actually took place.

b) Write a letter to your senator explaining why the federal government should adopt the accrual basis of accounting
