In Class #15.1 Usefulness of joint cost allocation Required 1 Calculate how the joint costs of \$12,000 would be allocated between chocolate powder liquor base and milk chocolate liquor base under each of the following methods: (a) sales value at splitoff, (b) physical measure (containers), (c) estimated NRV, and (d) constant gross margin percentage NRV. a.

Further processing of chocolate-powderliquor base into chocolate powder: Incremental revenue, \$9,600 – \$5,040 1 \$4,560 Incremental costs 5,100 Incremental operating income fromfurther processing \$ (540) Further processing of milk-chocolateliquor base into milk chocolate: Incremental revenue, \$20,400 – \$9,360 2 \$11,040 Incremental costs 10,500 Incremental operating income fromfurther processing \$ 540 Roundtree Chocolates could increase operatin g income by \$540 (to \$ 2,940) if chocolate- powder liquor base is sold at the splitoff point and if milk-chocolate liquor base is further processed into milk chocolate. 1 2 Sales value at splitoff =\$5,040 (chocolate-powder liquor) Sales value at splitoff =\$9,360 (milk chocolate liquor) In Class #15.2 Estimated net realizable value method, byproducts, governance Required 1 The Princess Corporation uses the estimated NRV method to determine inventory cost of its joint products; byproducts are reported on the balance sheet at their selling price when produced. For the month of November 2013, calculate the following: a. The output for apple slices, applesauce, apple juice, and animal feed, in kilograms. b. The estimated NRV at the splitoff point for each of the three joint products. c. The amount of the cost of the Cutting Department assigned to each of the three joint products and the amount assigned to the byproduct in accordance with corporate policy. d. The gross margins in dollars for each of the three joint products. a. For the month of November 2010,Princess Corporation’s output was: • applselices 89,100 • applesauce 81,000 • appluice 67,500* • animfeed 27,000 These amounts were calculated as follows: KiNlegrtmls ProductInpuPt roportioKilograms Lost Kilograms Sliceskg,000 0.33 89,100 —89,100 Sauc2e70,000 0.30 81,000 —81,000 Juice270,000 0.27 72,900 5,40067,500* Feed270,000 0.2 10, 000 — 27,000 1.00 270,000 5,400 264,600 *Net kilograms: = 72,900 – (0.08 net kilograms) 1.08 net kilograms = 72,900 Net kilograms = 67,500 b. The estimated net realizable value for eac h of the three main products is calculated below: Estimated Net ReNaltabllee Product Kilograms Price Revenue Costs Value Slices 89,100 \$0.96 \$ 85,536 \$13,536 \$ 72,000 Sauce81,000 0.66 53,460 10,260 43,200 Juice 67,500 0.48 32,400 3,600 28,800 \$171,396 \$27,396\$144,000 c.andd. The estimated net realizable value of the byproduct is deducted from the production costs prior to allocation to int products, as presented below: Allocation of Cutting Department Cost to Joint Products and Byproducts Net realizable value (NRV) of byproduct = Byproduct revenue – Separable costs (270,000 \$0.12 =  10%) – \$840 = \$3,240 – \$840 = \$2,400 Costs to be allocated = Joint costs – NRV of byproduct \$2,400 – \$72,000 = \$69,600 = GrJseiatrable Product Revenue Costs Costs 853,,360 Slices 1\$37,200 2 Sau52,,6800 322,320 Juice 32,400 3,600 13,92880 \$1\$71,,966 \$69,600 \$74,400 1) Slices 72K/144K \$69,600 = \$34,800 2) Sauce 43.2K/144K \$69,600 = \$20,880 3) Juice 28.8K/144K \$69,600 = \$13,920 SOLUTION EXHIBIT IN CLASS #15.2 Required 2 Comment on the significance to management of the gross margin dollar information by joint product for planning and control purposes, as opposed to inventory costing purposes. The gross-margin dollar information by main product is determined by the arbitrary allocation of joint production costs. As a result,these cost figures and the resulting gross-margin information are of little significance for planning and control purposes. The allocation is made only for purposes of inventory costing and income determination. Required 3 Assume that Princess managers aim to maximize their bonuses over time. What byproduct method (the pre-2013 method or the 2013 method) would the manager prefer? The 2013 method gives Pr incess managers relatively little di scretion vis-à-vis the pre-2013 method. The 2013 meth od recognizes all four products in the accounting system at the time of production. The pre-2013 method recognizes only two products (apple slices and applesauce) at the time of production. Consider the data in the question. Th e \$72,000 of joint costs would be allocated as follows (using the \$72,000 and 43,200 estimated NRV amounts): \$72,000 Apple Slices: \$72,000 \$45,000 \$115,200 \$43,200 Applesauce: \$72,000 \$27,000 \$115,200 The gross margin on each product is:
