During December of 2010, Boron produced a total of 2,500 gallons of output and
incurred the following direct manufacturing costs:
Direct labor:
4,900 hours worked @ an average wage rate of $19.50/hr
Direct Materials: Purchased: 6,000 [email protected] $10.45/gal
Used in production: 5,100 gallons
Boron recordes price variances for materials at the time of purchase
Required – give journal entries for the following events and transactions:
1. Purchase, on credit, of direct materials
Actual Cost
6,000 @ $10.45/gal
Standard Cost 6,000 @ $10.00/gal
6000 gallons @ $10 a gallon = $60,000
Price Variance
Accounts Payable $62,700
Open account recording will state that direct materials = 6,000 gallons
at $10.00 per gallon wil equal $10.45
2. Direct materials issued to production.
Actual Cost
5,100 gallons
Standard Cost 5,000 gallons (2 per unit) @ $10.00/gallon
2,500 x 2 gallons x $10.00 per gallon = $50,000
Materials $5,100 gallons x $10.00/gallon = $51,000
Materials cost is $20/unit for full production of the period at 2,500 units
3. Direct labor cost of units completed this period.
Actual Cost
4,900 hours @ $19.50/hr
Standard Cost 5,000 hours (2hrs/unit) @ $25.00/hr
2,500 x 2 hours x $25.00/hr = $125,000
Variance = $5.50/hr x 4,900 hours
= $26,950
Efficiency Variance = 100 hrs x $25.00/hr = $2,500
Wages (4,900 hrs x $19.50/hr
= $95,550
Direct Labor cost s ($50/unit) for the completed production (2,500 units)
and the actual labor costs during the period
4. Direct manufacturing cost (direct labor plus direct materials)
of units completed and transferred to Finished Goods Inventory
Actual Cost
2,500 units
Standard Cost 2,500 units @ $10×2+$25×2 = $70.00
$70.00/unit x 2,000 units
= $175,000
Direct manufacturing costs are recorded using cost of goods
manufactured for the period.
5. Sale, for $150.00 per gallon, of 2,000 gallons of output (hint:
you will need two journal entries here)
Actual Cost
2000 gallons
Standard Cost 2000 gallons @ $70.00/unit
$70 x 2,000 units = $140,000
= $140,000
Direct manufacturing cost of cost of good sold for the period.
Accounts Receivable = $150/unit x 2,000 units
= $300,000
Sales Revenue = $300,000
Sales revenue is recorded using accounts receivable.

She commented that her factory had been highly automated in the last two years
and as a result now has hardly any direction labor. The factory hires only highly
skilled workers to set up productionruns and to do periodic adjustments of
machinery whenever the need arises
