Sir, How come no sounds from your lecture video?

The sound is working fine! Check the sound settings on your computer.

Would it be okay if I were to round up the figure of machining (overhead) from 0.585 to 0.59? Because when I did that, my answers were quite different compared to what you wrote.
July 10, 2015 at 6:45 pm
No – you should not round when splitting the overheads between the products.
July 12, 2015 at 5:11 pm
Hi Sir, I have the same question of “Erica” asked even after i read your answer. so are we not splitting the other overheads namely receiving dispatching and set up costs ? Is it the reason that we should not round off since we use machine hours?
July 12, 2015 at 5:14 pm
There is no firm rule. A bit of rounding does not matter, but you don’t want too much.
(Remember (as I say in the lecture) that it is the overhead per unit ultimately that matters and so because you divide the total by the number of units at the end, a bit of rounding in the totals will not affect the final overhead per unit)

The lecture was great easy and understandable. I feel am in the classroom from my tab. Thank you so much and God bless you.

So so so sorry if this is in the wrong place but I was so so ill during the f5 exam and made the silliest mistake ever. Instead of multiplying by total units i did CPU/total cmost driver units. I then divided that by 37000 ( total units) and multiplied that number by the cost the cost Driver units. how many marks should I lose?
June 3, 2015 at 7:17 am
In future please ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum – not as a comment on a lecture.
I really can’t say how many marks you will lose – partly because it is not me who will be marking it, and partly because obviously I can’t see exactly what you wrote in your answer.
You should still get some marks so don’t worry about it too much.

Your lectures was just fantastic and clear to understand.
Best Regards Sir.

I really do appreciate your teachings. This has given me more insight on ABC.
Thank you so much.
May 2, 2015 at 2:53 pm
You teach so well, makes one actually love it all. Your tutoring isn’t mechanical at all, its actually kinda fun.
I was behind on my preparations because I got my text materials late. But with this, and how you teach,…. thank you so so much.
May 2, 2015 at 2:48 pm
I can’t thank you enough.
April 19, 2015 at 10:24 am
really helpful. I’ve just started to study F5 by myself but feel quite hard. Your videos make things easier. Thank you!
April 16, 2015 at 5:23 pm
I’ve spent my time getting a degree in accounting and finance. You teach it better than any of my tutors and some of them were pretty darn good

Hi John, I agree with other students, I go to class but found your lecture is clear and easy to understand, your humour is a great plus. Thank you for setting up this free lecture. You are helping millions of us students.

I just joined this online Open Tuition.com and overall I think it is a great start for the learner and it helps a lot on our study to those student like me to make preparation for the ACCA.
Thanks a lot lecture;John Moffat for the Knowledges.

Thank you for your comments

Sir ,you described about the marker’s approach for marking ,what about marking approach in theoretical questions..your opinion is greatly appreciated.
Usually each valid point gets one mark (unless the question makes it clear otherwise – for example if you are specifically asked for 3 points).
Best is to look at a few of the examiners marking guides – they are always at the very end of the examiners answers (which you can download from the ACCA website). It is listed there how the marks are actually allocated.
February 26, 2015 at 1:22 pm
Thanks alot for the lectures,I was thought in class, but I actually did understand all on abc costing after watching your lectures. Thanks

sir can you name some examples for PRODUCTION OVERHEADS AND NON PRODUCTION OVERHAEDS
February 16, 2015 at 9:23 am
Production overheads are those involved in manufacturing e.g. rent of the factory; depreciation of machines.
Non-production overheads are those involved in the administration and selling and distribution e.g. wages of office staff; depreciation of delivery vans.

sir i am not able to watch the video
February 16, 2015 at 9:21 am
The problem must be at your end. You should go to the support page (the link is above) and you should find a solution there.
February 10, 2015 at 7:06 pm
WOW, great lecture and i love the sense of humour.
November 26, 2014 at 8:36 pm
Sir I used this method shown above in ABC in the paper 2june 2014 Q1 (b)
But the answer is wrong. Why is it so???
November 27, 2014 at 5:56 am
The examiner does it exactly the same way, so I am sorry but I do not know where you made your mistake.
November 27, 2014 at 1:46 pm
So i can used your method?
November 27, 2014 at 2:48 pm
Yes (and so has the examiner).
November 27, 2014 at 2:49 pm
Yes (and so has the examiner) – there is only one correct final answer.
November 26, 2014 at 7:35 am
I have problem on absorption costing in the second stage how to allocate the direct labor while the question is given on direct labor (hours) and Machine usage (hours). The calculation part.
November 27, 2014 at 5:57 am
I don’t know what you mean. Direct labour is charged directly to the units. It is only the machine-related overheads that are charged on the basis of machine hours.
