The following information was compiled by Georgia Company:

Expected volume of production 50,000 units
Actual level of production 47,500 units
Budgeted fixed overhead $400,000
Actual fixed overhead $415,000
Variable overhead rate per direct-labor hour $18
Actual variable overhead $790,000
Standard direct�labor hours allowed
per unit produced 1.0 hour
Standard direct�labor rate per hour $32.00
Actual direct�labor hours of input 46,500 hours
Actual direct�labor rate per hour $33.00

Compute the following variances:

a. Variable factory overhead flexible�budget variance

b. Fixed factory overhead flexible�budget variance

c. Fixed factory overhead production�volume variance

Solution Preview
