Calculating Transfer Price

Teslum Inc. has a number of divisions, including the Machina Division, a producer of high-end espresso makers, and the Java Division, a chain of coffee shops.

Machina Division produces the EXP-100 model espresso maker that can be used by Java Division to create various coffee drinks. The market price of the EXP-100 model is $950, and the full cost of the EXP-100 model is $475.

Required:

  1. 1. If Teslum has a transfer pricing policy that requires transfer at full cost, what will the transfer price be? Do you suppose that Machina and Java divisions will choose to transfer at that price?
  2. 2. If Teslum has a transfer pricing policy that requires transfer at market price, what would the transfer price be? Do you suppose that Machina and Java divisions would choose to transfer at that price?
  3. 3. Now suppose that Teslum allows negotiated transfer pricing and that Machina Division can avoid $135 of selling expense by selling to Java Division. Which division sets the minimum transfer price, and what is it? Which division sets the maximum transfer price, and what is it? Do you suppose that Machina and Java divisions would choose to transfer somewhere in the bargaining range?
