Question and answer
What are some criteria you would use to choose between a fixed and a flexible budget?
Static Budget: Shows the expected results of a responsibility center for only one activity level. [ Once the budget is made, it is not changed, even if the activity level changes. Flexible Budget: shows the expected results of a responsibility center for several activity levels. The flexible budget is more accurate than the static budget because budget amounts adjust for changes in activity.A
static budget is prepared and used throughout the year to compare with actual performance. A flexible budget is prepared early in the year, comparisons are made each month and the budget is adjusted to take into account new information and estimation errors. It is also called a rolling budget. You make a new one every monthFixed Budget is mainly used in the planning stage to define the broad objectives of management. Flexible budget, on the other hand is prepared for the volume of activity actually achieved, in other words the controlling stage. The reason why we had flexible budget is because for most of the time, the level of activities differ and as a result, the fixed budget differs by a lot from the actual result. ]

What are some examples of cost allocation criterion used by this organization? Are these criterion appropriate? Why or why not?
Weegy: Examples of bases used to allocate corporate cost pools to the operating divisions of an organization: Treasury costs—allocated using cost of new assembly equipment. Corporate human resource management costs—allocated using salary and labor costs [ of divisions. Corporate administration costs—allocated using division administration costs.The use of budgeted indirect cost allocation rates rather than actual indirect rates has several attractive features to the manager of a user department: 1. the user knows the costs in advance and can factor them into ongoing operating choices, and 2. inefficiencies at the department providing the service do not affect the costs allocated to the user department. Disagree. Allocating costs on "the basis of estimated long-run use by user department managers" means department managers can lower their cost allocations by deliberately underestimating their long-run use. ] (More)

Why do you think the use of zero-base budgeting remains uncommon? Explain your answers.
Weegy: Zero-based budgets mean that each year the budget begins at zero and all expenditures have to be evaluated and substantiated before excepted. [ The reason it is less common is because it opens the door to subjectivity and special interests which may not be the best test of reality. ] (More)
