231RegisteredIt is right i am afraid! I always get confused with the capacity as A or F as well, a good tip is the capacity + efficiency = Volume, so in this case it has too be 210 Adverse.

Hope that helps!

17Registered231RegisteredIt is usually the Fixed Variances where the mistakes happen with me! Fixed Overhead expenditure is easy, so if you get Volume - Capacity + Efficiency they should be right!

If you cant find the problem don't panic! Your marked on everything you do so if you have just got one formula wrong it's not the end of the world.

17Registered231Registeredno not a clue lol :thumbup1:

For the Fixed Overhead i do

FO Expenditure V = Budget - Actual

FO Volume V = Standard for A Output - Budgeted

FO Efficiency V = Standard for A Output - Actual

FO Capacity V = Acutal - Budgeted

Volume = Efficiency + Capacity.

Just put the Volume in the reconciliation.

But as i dont know what you were asking not sure if that helps!!! :thumbdown:

76RegisteredMy tutor has told me to put the efficiency and capacity variances in the reconciliation and not use the Volume - Would the examiner give the same marks whichever was included?
