Problem 1
During January, Manhattan Consultants worked 1,000 hours for Nocando Manufacturing, 300 hours for Sails, Inc., and 500 hours for Original John's Restaurants, Manhattan Consultants bills clients at $80 an hour; its labor costs are $30 an hours. A total of 2,000 hours were worked in January with 200 hours not billable to clients. Overhead costs of $30,000 were incurred and assigned to clients on the basis of direct-labor hours. Because 200 hours were not billable, some overhead was not assigned to jobs. Manhattan Consultants had $25,000 in marketing and administrative costs. All transactions were on account.
