Abstract

Gomez Electronics produces three models of portable compact disc (CD) players. The company uses a full cost, standard costing system for both internal and external financial reporting. However, the company''s president is considering changing to a standard direct costing (ie variable costing) system for internal purposes. Students are asked to prepare two sets of income statements: one based on a standard full costing system, and the other based on a standard direct costing system. Each set of income statements provides information that reflects budgeted sales and budgeted production, as well as actual sales and actual production. Gomez Electronics has three production departments, all of which have excess capacity. The company has received an offer from a large discount company to purchase a large quantity of CD players that, except for the plastic case, are similar to one of Gomez Electronics'' CD players. The offer stipulates the price, the total quantity, and the delivery schedule. Students are asked to make a decision regarding whether or not to accept the discount company''s offer. In addition, students are asked to make a recommendation regarding the adoption of a standard direct costing system for internal use.
