Can you please solve this sum for me? I didn’t get the right answer. Thanks!
A company uses standard marginal costing. Last month the standard contribution on actual sales was \$10,000 and the following variances arose:
Total variable cost variance: \$2,000 Adverse
Sales Price variance: \$500 Favorable
Sales volume contribution variance: \$1,000 Adverse
Find the actual contribution for last month.

@chandhini,
Budgeted Contribution 10,000
Less Total Variable Cost Variances 2,000
Add Sales Price Variance 500
Actual Contribution is therefore 8,500

why did he take sales price variances in marginal costing when you do not calculate it in marginal costing . and so the why did not he take fixed overhead capacity and efficiency variances??????????????????????????///

@admin
under marginal costing,fixed overhead expenditure variances i think the budget total cost should be 133500. or why it is 130500?
