Steve Smith has completed an evaluation
of the effects of a favorable production volume variance from the prior
period. He proposes to Roberta Blake that the use of a variable costing
income statement rather than an absorption costing income statement for
the basis calculating incentive rewards would encourage more ethical
behavior, when rewards are based on operating income.
- Do you agree with Smith’s suggestion?
- Are there any reporting considerations which impact the preparation of a variable costing income statement?
Blake and Smith agree that only absorption costing is appropriate, are
there any methods to fairly capture the effect of increased inventories
during times of overproduction?
