When we are valuing work in progress, we can multiply the equivalent units into cost per unit, Can’t we??
If we try to example 1,
Labour = 200 x ($3×60%) = $360
instead of this,
120 x $3 = $360
Same answer is coming.
So, can we use both methods?

Hi sir! if we are calculating the cost per unit of every process every month, the cost per unit of each process will keep changing every month because every month there will be different costs incurred for materials, labour, overheads so there will be different value of the inventory each month(different cost per unit in the inventory each month). how will that be useful?

If costs are increasing them maybe the company will want to increase their prices. As with all management accounting, the company does whatever it the most useful for them.

Hello John, Firstly thank you for these amazing training video lectures which are very simple and easy to follow. I am not from accounts but your videos are resourceful and are encouraging me to complete chapter by chapter. I thought WIP (this section) is too complicated, but your methodology was just awesome.

Sir, thank you for your lessons.
Just 1 question regarding the T process,
the output (finished goods) of 800 units = cost $9600 when we credit it to put those finished goods out of production process, which is the double-entry to do before we sell it (debit cash/receivable and credit sale).
Thank you in advance for your time and patience 🙂

We debit the finished goods account.
April 25, 2020 at 7:52 pm
But, after we have to debit it, we want to sell these finished goods, so how is done the double-entry, I mean the connection between credit these finished good since is output but meanwhile in the same time we should do the double-entry of credit sale and debit cash/reveivable.
I guess something is missing me.
Thank you in advance, sir.

We credit the finished goods account and debit the Statement of Profit and Loss with the cost of the goods sold.
However you are not examined on all the double entries in Paper MA.

Thank you again, sir, for your fast reply which was very helpful to me.

Hello Sir, i have a question, can we have a question with Abnormal loss or gain merged with Work in progress???
April 3, 2020 at 4:15 pm
No – the examiner has said that questions will not examine both in the same question.
February 12, 2020 at 3:11 pm
Hello sir, i have a serious doubt about equivalent units. what i have understood about equivalent units is below,
IF THE WORK DONE IS 100 UNITS AND OUT OF THAT HALF OF THE UNITS WERE FINISHED AND ANOTHER HALF WERE INCOMPLETE.THE COMPLETED 50 UNITS ARE CALLED EQUIVALENT UNITS.
By applying this concept in questions, i cannot arrive to a correct answer. i would like to know that my conceptual knowledge is right or wrong.

Hi fathah2000 you have to work it out according to material labor and o’heads
lets assume we are a company and we are making chairs and we have 200 chairs in wip. The material of those chairs is 100% ready so we don’t need to calculate the Equivalent units. When it comes to labor they are 60% so we calculate the EU which is 60% of 200 = 120 …. its like having 120 chairs 100% ready from labor. Same for the o’heads.

I do make this point in the lectures – that materials are always immediately 100% complete unless specifically told otherwise. Have you watched the other parts of this series of lectures?
