Transcript of 5.2 Costs and Revenues
Costs and Revenues
refers to the expenditure in producing something.
is the money a business receives from the sale of products to customers.
TYPES OF COSTS
refers to the proceeds coming into a business, usually from the sale of goods and/or services. Revenue that comes from the sales of a firm's products are called
A positive difference between revenues and costs will the leave the business with
costs that the business has to pay regardless of how much it produces or sells. Ex.: Rent, advertising, market research, management salaries, stationery, security, professional accountancy fees.
The costs of production that change in direct proportion to the level of output or sales. Ex.: raw material, commissions, packaging.
Those that contain an element of both fixed and variable costs. Only tend to change when production or sales exceed a certain level of output. Ex.: mobile telephone bills, labor costs*, machinery and vehicles*
They are similar to variable costs in that they change with the level of output. But, a DC is specifically related to a particular project or the output of a single product. Ex.: consultancy fees, solicitor's fees, telephone bills, postage, photocopying, mortgage fees and bank charges.
Indirect costs (overheads)
: cannot be clearly related to the level of output of any single product, i.e. they are not directly linked with the level of production or sale of a product. Ex.: fuel, power, rent, advertising, legal expenses, insurance, security, stationery, shipping, utility bills, etc.
The average cost of production is calculated by dividing total costs by the level of output. Ex.: If total costs of producing 1000 t-shirts amounts to $8000, the cost of each t-shirt averages out at $8.
Average costs (AC) fall and rise due to economies and diseconomies of scale respectively. The level of output where AC are at their lowest is known as the
optimal level of output
Cola Soft Drinks Ltd. has fixed overheads of $500 and sells 200 units per month. Each item sells for $35 and has direct costs of $15. Calculate the total costs per month for the business.
Study the table below and determine the fixed costs of production for the firm:
Jersey Clothes Ltd. has fixed overheads of $500 and sells 200 units per month. Each item sells for $35 and has direct costs of $15. Calculate the change in the average cost of production at 100 units and 200 units of output and identify why the unit cost has changed.
Jacobson Candies has monthly fixed costs of $3000 and unit variable costs of $2. Its current level of demand is 3000 units each month. The average unit price is $6. Calculate the firm's current average costs each month.
