Speediprint Corporation owns a small printing press that prints leaflets, brochures, and advertising materials. Speediprint classifies its various printing jobs as standard jobs or special jobs. Speediprint’s simple job-costing system has two direct-cost categories (direct materials and direct labour) and a single indirect-cost pool. Speediprint operates at capacity and allocates all indirect costs using printing machine-hours as the allocation base. Speediprint is concerned about the accuracy of the costs assigned to standard and special jobs and therefore is planning to implement an activity-based costing system. Speediprint’s ABC system would have the same direct-cost categories as its simple costing system. However, instead of a single indirectcost pool there would now be six categories for assigning indirect costs: design, purchasing, setup, printing machine operations, marketing, and administration. To see how activity-based costing would affect the costs of standard and special jobs, Speediprint collects the following information for the fiscal year 2017 that just ended. Required: 1.       Calculate the cost of a standard job and a special job under the simple costing system. 2.        Calculate the cost of a standard job and a special job under the activity-based costing system. 3.        Compare the costs of a standard job and a special job in requirements 1 and 2. Why do the simple and activity-based costing systems differ in the cost of a standard job and a special job? 4.        How might Speediprint use the new cost information from its activity-based costing system to better manage its business?
