1 12 Marginal Costing BASIC CONCEPTS AND FORMULAE Basic Concepts 1. Absorption Costing: a method of costing by which all direct cost and applicable overheads are charged to products or cost centers for finding out the total cost of production. Absorbed cost includes production cost as well as administrative and other cost. 2. Break even chart: A mathematical or graphical representation, showing approximate profit or loss of an enterprise at different levels of activity within a limited range. 3. Break Even Point: This is the level of activity there is neither a profit nor a loss. 4. Cash Break Even Point: It is the level of activity where there is neither a cash profit nor a cash loss. 5. Cost Breakeven Point: It is the level of activity where the total cost under two alternatives are the same. It is also known as Cost indifference point. 6. Differential Costing: It is a technique used in the preparation of adhoc information in which only cost and income differences in between alternative courses of action are taken into consideration. 7. Direct Costing: This is a principle under which all costs which are directed related are charged to products, processes, operations or services, of which they form an integral part. 8. Marginal contribution: This is the difference between selling price and variable cost of production. 9. Marginal Cost: This is the variable cost of one unit of product or a service. 10. Marginal Costing: It is a principle whereby variable cost are charged to cost units and fixed cost attributable to the relevant period is written off in full against contribution for that period. 11. Profit Volume Chart: It is a diagram showing the expected relationship between costs, revenue at various volumes with profit being the residual. 12. Profit Volume ratio: It is the ratio establishing the relationship between the
2 12.2 Cost Accounting contribution and the sales value. 13. Margin of Safety: This is the difference between the expected level of sales and the break even sales Basic Formulas 1. *S V = F + P By multiplying and dividing L.H.S. by S 2. S(S V) = F + P S 3. S P/V Ratio = F + P or Contribution S V ( Q P/V Ratio = ) S 4. **BES P/V Ratio = Fixed Cost (Q at BEP profit is zero) 5. Fixed Cost BES = P/V Ratio 6. Fixed Cost P/V Ratio = BES 7. S P/V Ratio = Contribution (Refer to iii) 8. Contribution P/V Ratio = Sales 9. (BES + MS) P/V Ratio = contribution (Total sales = BES + MS) 10. (BES P/V Ratio) + (MS P/V Ratio) = F + P By deducting (BES P/V Ratio) from L.H.S. and F from R.H.S. in x we get : 11. ***M.S. P/V Ratio = P 12. Change in profit P/V Ratio = Change in sales 13. P/V Ratio = 14. Profitability = Change in contribution Change in sales Contribution Key factor 15. Margin of Safety = Total sales BES. 16. BES = Total sales MS
3 Marginal Costing Margin of safety ratio = Total sales - BES Total sales * S = Sales, V= Variable Cost, F= Fixed Cost, P= Profit ** BES = Break Even Sales, P/V Ratio = Profit Volume Ratio ***M.S = Margin of Safety Question 1 A company produces single product which sells for ` 20 per unit. Variable cost is ` 15 per unit and Fixed overhead for the year is ` 6,30,000. Required: (a) (b) Calculate sales value needed to earn a profit of 10% on sales. Calculate sales price per unit to bring BEP down to 1,20,000 units. (c) Calculate margin of safety sales if profit is ` 60,000. (a) Suppose sales units are x then S = V + F + P S = Sales V = Variable Cost F = Fixed Cost P = Profit 20x = 15x + 6,30, x 20x 17x = 6,30,000 6,30,000 x = = 2,10,000 units 3 Sales value = 2,10, = ` 42,00,000 (b) Sales price to down BEP 1,20,000 units F 6,30,000 S = V + S = 15 + Rs New BEP 1,20,000 Profit 60,000 C (c) M S Sales = where P/ V = 100. P/ V ratio P/ V S
4 12.4 Cost Accounting Question 2 5 Or, = 25% 60, = 2,40,000 Or 25 Explain and illustrate cash break-even chart. In cash break-even chart, only cash fixed costs are considered. Non-cash items like depreciation etc. are excluded from the fixed cost for computation of break-even point. It depicts the level of output or sales at which the sales revenue will equal to total cash outflow. It is computed as under: CashFixed Cost Cash BEP (Units) = Cost per Units Hence for example suppose insurance has been paid on 1st January, 2006 till 31st December, 2010 then this fixed cost will not be considered as a cash fixed cost for the period 1st January, 2008 to 31st December, Question 3 A company has fixed cost of ` 90,000, Sales ` 3,00,000 and Profit of ` 60,000. Required: Sales volume if in the next period, the company suffered a loss of ` 30,000. (ii) What is the margin of safety for a profit of ` 90,000?
5 Marginal Costing 12.5 Contribution 1,50,000 P/V ratio = 100 = 100 = 50% Sales 3,00,000 (ii) If in the next period company suffered a loss of ` 30,000, then Contribution = Fixed Cost ± Profit = ` 90,000 ` 30,000 (as it is a loss) = ` 60,000. Then Sales = Contribution 60,000 or = ` 1,20,000 P / V ratio 0.50 So, there will be loss of ` 30,000 at sales of ` 1,20,000. Pr ofit 90,000 Margin of safety = or = ` 1,80,000 PV ratio 0.50 Alternative solution of this part: Break-even Sales = Sales at profit of ` 90,000 = Margin of Safety Question 4 Fixed Cost 90,000 = = ` 1,80,000 PV Ratio 0.5 = Fixed Cost + Profit PV Ratio 90, , = 1,80, = Sales Break-even Sales = 3,60,000 1,80,000 = ` 1,80,000 = ` 3,60,000. ABC Ltd. can produce 4,00,000 units of a product per annum at 100% capacity. The variable production costs are ` 40 per unit and the variable selling expenses are ` 12 per sold unit.

The company sold 500 units for ` 5,00,000. You are required to calculate: Break even point, and (ii) Sales in units to earn a profit of 10% on sales P/V Ratio - 50% Margin of Safety - 40% Sales 500 Units for ` 5,00,000 Sales Per Unit - ` 1000 Calculation of Break Even Point (BEP) Margin of Safety Ratio = Sales BEP 100 Sales 40 = 5,00,000 BEP 100 5,00,000 BEP = ` 3,00,000 BEP Per Unit = 3,00,000/1000 = 300 Units
14 12.14 Cost Accounting (ii) Sales in units to earn a profit of 10 % on sales Sales = Fixed Cost + Desired Pr ofit P/VRatio Let the sales be x Profit = 10% of x i.e. 0.1X. Thus - x = 1,50, X 50% or x = ` 3,75,000 To find out sales in units amount of sales ` 3,75,000 is to be divided by Selling Price Per unit Thus - Sales (in units ) = 3,75, = 375 Units Working Notes 1. Selling price = ` 5,00,000/` 500 = ` 1000 per unit 2. Variable cost per unit Selling Price - (Selling Price x P/V Ratio) 1000 (1000 x 50%) = ` Profit at present level of sales Margin of Safety Pr ofit = P / V Ratio Margin of Safety = 40% of ` 5,00,000 = ` 2,00,000 2,00,000 Pr ofit = 50% Profit = ` 1,00, Fixed Cost = (Sales x P/V Ratio) Profit = 5,00,000 x 50% 1,00,000 = `1,50,000 Note: Alternative ways of calculation of Break Even Point and required sales to earn a profit of 10% of sales can be adopted to solve the problem.
15 Marginal Costing Question 13 Write short notes on Angle of Incidence This angle is formed by the intersection of sales line and total cost line at the breakeven point. This angle shows the rate at which profits are being earned once the breakeven point has been reached. The wider the angle the greater is the rate of earning profits. A large angle of incidence with a high margin of safety indicates extremely favourable position. Question 14 Discuss basic assumptions of Cost Volume Profit analysis. CVP Analysis:-Assumptions Changes in the levels of revenues and costs arise only because of changes in the number of products (or service) units produced and sold. (ii) Total cost can be separated into two components: Fixed and variable (iii) Graphically, the behaviour of total revenues and total cost are linear in relation to output level within a relevant range. (iv) Selling price, variable cost per unit and total fixed costs are known and constant. (v) All revenues and costs can be added, sub traded and compared without taking into account the time value of money. Question 15 The following figures are related to LM Limited for the year ending 31st March, 2012 : Sales - 24,000 ` 200 per unit; P/V Ratio 25% and Break-even Point 50% of sales. You are required to calculate: (ii) Fixed cost for the year Profit earned for the year (iii) Units to be sold to earn a target net profit of ` 11,00,000 for a year. (iv) Number of units to be sold to earn a net income of 25% on cost. (v) Selling price per unit if Break-even Point is to be brought down by 4,000 units.
16 12.16 Cost Accounting Break even point (in units) is 50% of sales i.e. 12,000 units Hence, Break even point (in sales value) is 12,000 units x ` 200 = ` 24,00,000 We know that Break even sales = Fixed Cost P/V ratio or ` 24,00,000 = Fixed Cost 25% or Fixed Cost = ` 24,00,000 x 25% = ` 6,00,000 So Fixed Cost for the year is ` 6,00,000 (ii) Contribution for the year =(24,000 units x ` 200) x 25% = ` 12,00,000 Profit for the year = Contribution Fixed Cost = ` 12,00,000 - ` 6,00,000 = ` 6,00,000 (iii) Target net profit is ` 11,00,000 Hence, Target contribution = Target Profit + Fixed Cost = ` 11,00,000 + ` 6,00,000 = ` 17,00,000 Contribution per unit = 25% of ` 200 = ` 50 per unit ` 17,00,000 No. of units = = 34,000 unit ` 50 per unit So, 34,000 units to be sold to earn a target net profit of ` 11,00,000 for a year. (iv) Net desired total Sales (Number of unit x Selling price) be Χ, then desired profit is 25% on Cost or 20% on Sales i.e. 0.2 Χ Desired Sales = Fixed Cost + Desired Profit P/V ratio Χ = 6,00, Χ 25% or, 0.25 Χ = 6,00, Χ or, 0.05 Χ = 6,00,000
17 Marginal Costing (v) or, Χ = ` 1,20,00,000 No. of units to be sold - 1,20,00, = 60,000 units If Break even point is to be brought down by 4,000 units then Breakeven point will be units 4000 units = 8000 units Let selling price be ` X and fixed cost and variable cost per unit remain unchanged i.e. ` 6,00,000 and ` 150 respectively. Break even point: Sales revenue = Total cost 8,000 X = 8,000 x ` ` 6,00,000 Or, 8,000 X = ` 12,00,000 + ` 6,00,000 ` 18,00,000 Or, X = = ` 225 8,000 Selling Price should be ` 225 Hence, selling price per unit shall be ` 225 if Breakeven point is to be brought down by 4000 units.
