Calculating Full Unit Cost For A Retailer

Question

Pool Pty Ltd manufactures above ground swimming pools for Australian households. The company sells the product at a price of \$1200 to three retailers (A, B and C). The cost of goods sold for the product is \$900.

Budgeted data for 20X7 is as follows:

Sales and administrative expenses of \$180,000 comprise mainly personnel costs. All employees are paid at the same rate. These costs are related to three activities:

1. Sales order processing (employing one staff member)

2. After-sales customer service (employing five staff members)

• Sales ordering – number of sales orders;
