These markers would be marketed under the wholesaler’s name and would not affect Jones Products’s sales through its normal channels. A study of the costs of this additional business reveals the following: Direct materials costs are 100% variable. Per unit direct labor costs for the additional units would be 50% higher than normal because their production would require overtime pay at 1½ times the usual labor rate. Twenty-five percent of the normal annual overhead costs are fixed at any production level from 350,000 to 500,000 units. The remaining 75% of the annual overhead cost is variable with volume. Accepting the new business would involve no additional selling expenses. Accepting the new business would increase administrative expenses by a $5,000 fixed amount. Required Prepare a three-column comparative income statement that shows the following: 1. Annual operating income without the special order (column 1). 2. Annual operating income received from the new business only (column 2). 3. Combined annual operating income from normal business and the new business (column 3).
