Thanks

I know that the Depreciation and Premises Costs will be the same and worked out that Direct Costs would be £240,000 (I think) but how do I calculate the Indirect Labour Costs?
Thanks again for any help.0 
Hi there the indirect labour is a semi variable cost that you need to use the high low method to work it out:
High units:1500 Cost 90000
Low units:1000 Cost 65000
Unit Difference 500 Cost difference 25000
25000/500 = 50 variable cost
so now you work out fixed costs, using the high units;
50 (variable) x 1500 units = 75000 variable at 1500 units
cost 9000075000 variable = 15000 fixed
so answer is 15000 fixed costs plus variable of 1200x50 = 75000
Your direct costs of 240000 are correct!
Hope that made sense for you. I know what it like when your stuck on something!!0 
Thanks a lot for that. I get so confused sometimes with what I need to do to calculate something...............just hope I master it before the Exam!0
