Using the annual report presented for Bell Division, evaluate the division and its management in terms of: (ii) The manner of presentation Transcribed Image Text: D Corporation is one of the major producers of pre-fabricated houses in the home building
industry. The corporation consists of two divisions:
1. Bell Division, which acquires the raw materials to manufacture the basic house components
and assembles them into kits.
2. Cornish Division, which takes the kits and constructs the homes for final home buyers.
The corporation is decentralized and the management of each division is measured by its income and
return on investment.
Bell Division assembles seven separate house kits using raw materials purchased at the
prevailing market prices. The seven kits are sold to Cornish for prices ranging from US$45,000 to
US$98,000. The prices are set by corporate management of D Corporation using prices paid by Cornish
when it buys comparable units from outside sources. The smaller kits with the lower prices have
become a larger portion of the units sold because the final house buyer is face with prices that are
increasing more rapidly than personal income. The kits are manufactured and assembled in a new plant
purchased by Bell this year. The division had been located in a leased plant for the past four
years.
All kits are assembled upon receipt of an order from the Cornish Division. When the kit is
completely assembled it is immediately taken by the Cornish Division for final construction. Thus, Bell
Division has no finished goods inventory.
The Bell Division’s accounts and reports are prepared on an actual-cost basis. There is no budget
and standards have not been developed for each product. A factory overhead rate is calculated at the
beginning of each year. The rate is designed to charge all overhead to the product each year. Any under-
or over- applied overhead is allocated to the cost of goods sold account and the WIP inventories.
Bell Division’s annual report is presented below. This report forms the basis of the evaluation of
the division and its management by the corporation management.
Additional information regarding corporate and division practices is as follows:
The corporation office does all the personnel and accounting work for each division.
The corporate personnel costs are allocated on the basis of number of employees in the
division.
The accounting costs are allocated to the division on the basis of total costs excluding
corporate charges.
The division administration costs are included in factory overhead.
The finance charges include a corporate-imputed interest charge on division assets and
divisional lease payments.

The division investment for the ROI calculation includes division inventory and plant and
