14Price Variance:

AQ x AP - 70,000 x 0.5142857p (£36,000 / 70,000kg) = £36,000 (Answer In the question)

AQ x SP - 70,000 x 0.50p ( £25,000 / 50,000 Kg) = £35,000

Therefore £1,000 adverse as they've spent more money per unit than was budgeted.

Price Usage:

AQ x SP (Same as the bottom line above) 70,000 x 0.50p = £35,000

SQ x SP 60,000 (50,000 Budget / 5,000 budget units then x 6000 units actual) x 0.50p (£25,000 / 50,000kg) =£30,000

The standard quantity needs to be flexed from the budget to the actual results.

Answer = £35,000 - £30,000 = £5,000 adverse. (Useful tip is if the number on the bottom on the formulas if bigger than the top number it will be favorable.)

Labour Rate:

AH x AR 800 Hours x £10 per hour (£8,000 Actual Spend / 800 Actual Hours) = £8,000

AH x SR 800 Hours x £10 per hour (£10,000 Budget Spend / 1000 Budget Hours) = £8,000

£0 Variance.

Labour Efficiency:

AH x SR (Same as above bottom line again) = £8,000

SH x SR 1,200 Hours ( 10,000 Budget Hours / 5,000 budget units X 6,000 Actual Units) x £10 (£10,000 Budget Spend / 1000 Budget Hours) = £12,000

Answer: £4,000 Favourable (Bigger number on the bottom of the two formulas)

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck in your exam!
