Factory overhead volume variance

 Bellingham Company produced 15,000 units of product that required 4 standard hours per unit. The standard fixed overhead cost per unit is $1.15 per hour at 58,000 hours, which is 100% of normal capacity. Determine the fixed factory overhead volume variance.

To determine

Factory overhead volume variances:

Factory overhead volume variances refers to the difference between the budgeted fixed overheads at 100% of normal capacity, and the standard fixed overheads for the actual units produced. The factory overhead volume variances can be calculated as follows:

Fixed factory overheadvolume variance}(Standard hours for 100% ofnormal capacityStandardhours for actual units produced)×(Fixed factory overhead rate)

To determine: The fixed factory overhead volume variance.


The fixed factory overhead volume variance is determined as follows:

Fixed factory overheadvolume variance}(Standard hours for 100% ofnormal capacityStandardhours for actual units produced)×(Fixed factory overhead rate)= 58,000 hours60,000 hours ×$1
