# accounting hmwk Compute Design’s predetermined indirect cost allocation rate for 2011.

Design, Inc., is a web site design and consulting firm.  The firm uses a job order costing  system, in which each client is a different job.  Widget Design traces direct labor, licensing costs,  and travel costs directly to each job.  It allocates indirect costs to jobs based on a predetermined  indirect cost allocation rate, computed as a percentage of direct labor costs.               At the beginning of 2011, managing partner Judi Johnson prepared the following budget:   Direct Labor Hours 10,000hours      Direct Labor Costs  \$ 1,400,000        Support Staff Salaries \$    170,000        Computer Leases  \$      49,000        Office Supplies  \$      29,000        Office Rent  \$      60,000                                         In November 2011, Widget Design served several clients.  Records for two clients appear here:       Dining CoopRoot Chocolates   Direct labor hours  740 hours 65hours   Software licensing costs  \$    2,100   \$        300     Travel costs   \$    9,000   \$           –
