Firstly, thank you for all these lectures which are extremely helpful.
You lost me during the F2 video in which you did exercise on p. 83, example 1d. For the cost of material purchase, you seem to have multiplied wood and varnish by their unit price, $8 and $4 respectively. However, the question is about how much 26 300kg of wood and 14700l of varnish cost. So, surely, we should not be multiplying these quantities by the per unit costs of $8 and $4, but rather by the per kg and litre costs of wood and varnish?
Thank you in advance.
Ps. I tried to post this in ask the tutor but it would not post.

Great lecture. Was previously worried when I didn’t see the solution to the examples in chapter 15 in the course notes and the definition of the different types of budget. The lectures has addressed my concerns. Thanks

I am sorry but I have no idea which examples you are asking about – depreciation has nothing to do with budgeting in Paper F2.
I suggest that you watch the F3 lectures on deprecation and if you still have problems then ask in the Ask the Tutor forum and not as a comment under a lecture on something completely different.

The actual SALES revenue is $995000 not 995

Are you sure the question only says “Find out the total expenditure and volume variances”?
(because that could mean more than one thing)
September 22, 2014 at 11:56 am
yes sir, i am sure it’s on kaplan kit Budgeting chapter page no. 62 and question no. 206.

The volume variance is the difference between the original budget profit and the flexed budget profit.
The original budget profit is 120,000. If you flex the budget for sales of 100,000 units, you get a flexed profit of (10,000) (I.e. a loss of 10,000). So the volume variance is 110,000 (adverse)
The expenditure variance is the difference between the flexed budget profit and the actual profit. The flexed profit is a loss of (10,000); the actual profit is 5,000 and so the variance is 15,000 (favourable).
(This question is a bit naughty of Kaplan. Firstly because it should really be in the variances section rather than the budget section, and secondly because ‘expenditure’ variance isn’t really the correct name.)

Sir, how to work this out?
A company manufactures a single product. Budgeted production for the first three months of next year is as follows :
Month 1 :8k units
Month 2 : 9k units
Month 3 : 7k units
Each unit uses 4kg of raw material costing $5 per kg. The budgeted raw material inventory at the end of each month is to be 20% of the following months production.
What are the budgeted raw material purchases for month 2 of next year (in $’s)?
(answer is $172,000)
July 24, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Opening inventory for month 2 = 20% x 9,000 = 1,800
Closing inventory for month 2 = 20% x 7,000 = 1,400
So production in month 2 = 9,000 + 1,400 – 1,800 = 8,600
So raw materials = 8,600 x 4 a 5 = $172,000
July 24, 2014 at 12:11 pm
Why did you add 1,400 units (c/inventory) to the production of month 2?
July 24, 2014 at 12:13 pm
We sell 9,000. We start with 1800 in inventory, so that means we only need to produce 9000 – 1800. However we would then end up with no inventory at the end, but we want to have 1400 in inventory, so we need to make an additional 1400.
Sales units are always equal to opening inventory + production – closing inventory.
