The management of Baggerly Corporation would like to investigate the possibility of basing its predetermined overhead rate on activity at capacity. The company’s controller has provided an example to illustrate how this new system would work. In this example, the allocation base is machine hours, and the estimated amount of the allocation base for the upcoming year is 81,000 machine hours. In addition, capacity is 95,000 machine hours, and the actual level of activity for the year is 84,900 machine hours. All od the manufacturing overhead is fixed and is $6,617,700 per year. For simplicity, its assumed that this is the estimated manufacturing overhead for the year as well as the manufacturing overhead at capacity. It’s further assumed that this is also the actual amount of manufacturing overhead for the year.
If the company bases its predetermined overhead rate on capacity, by how much was manufacturing overhead underapplied or overapplied?
