# Total Cost of Production Part 2

Total Cost of production is the sum of factory cost and office and administrative overheads.

Total Cost of production = Factory Cost + office and administration overheads

Cost of Goods Sold: Not all the products are sold at the instant. Cost of goods sold can be calculated by subtracting closing stock of finished goods from the sum of total cost of production and opening stock of finished goods.

Cost of goods sold = Total cost of production + Opening stock of Finished goods

- Closing stock of finished goods

Total Cost: It is also called as cost of sales. Sum of cost of goods sold and selling & distribution overheads gives the Total Cost of the product.

Total Cost = Cost of Goods sold + Selling and distribution overheads

Example:

From the following information calculate the total cost. Rs.

Direct material 1,60,000

Direct Labour 52,000

Direct Expenses 19,000

Sales:

If the profit margin is added to the total cost of the product that will gives the Total Sales. If Total cost exceeds the sales that results loss.

Sales = Total Cost + Profit

Note: Profit margin sometimes given on percentage of sales or percentage of costs. Different cases and calculation of profit –

Case 1: If Cost is Rs.10,000 and profit on cost 10%. Assume the cost is Rs.100 and profit on cost is Rs.10. Hence Profit on cost of Rs.10,000 is 10,000 × 10/100 = Rs.1,000.

Case 2: If Cost is Rs.10,800 and profit on sales price is 10%. Assume sales price is Rs.100. cost price is Rs.90 [i.e. Rs.100 – Rs.10]. When profit on cost of Rs.90 is Rs.10. Hence profit on cost of Rs.10,800 is 10,800 × 10/90 = Rs.1,200.

Case 3: If sales price is Rs.12,100 and profit on cost is 10%. Assume Cost price is Rs.100. Sales price is Rs.110 [i.e.100 + 10]. If sales price is Rs.110, profit is Rs.10. Profit on sales price of Rs.12,100 is 12,100 × 10/110 = Rs.1,100 profit

Example: From the following information, calculate the value of goods sold. Rs.

Total Cost of Production 1,45,000

Opening stock of finished goods 22,000

Closing stock of finished goods 6,000
